20150811mfpittsports18-10

While the Cincinnati Bengals were not helping out their reputation by drafting Joe Mixon, their divisional rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, were involved in probably the most heartwarming story of the 2017 NFL draft. Two years ago former University of Pittsburgh running back, James Conner, overcame cancer and the Steelers put an exclamation point on the comeback story by making Conner’s dream come true when they drafted him in the third round with the 105th overall pick. What a contrast in character between the two organizations.

Let’s see what Twitter thought about this very emotional story.


This is what makes sports so amazing. Feel good stories like this one. You can go more in-depth on this story as it was recently on ESPN as a SC Feature.
