With the 122nd pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected Benny Snell, running back out of Kentucky.
A powerful, confident running back with a chip on his shoulder is the perfect complement for James Conner. But is he the perfect complement for Steelers fans? Ever since Le’Veon Bell decided that he was the most important person in the NFL, there has been a vacancy in the hearts of Pittsburgh fans and a vacancy at #26 in black and yellow.
So how do you become an instant fan favorite before you ever set foot on the field? The same way you make friends. Find a common enemy and hate them together. Take a look at the shot he takes at Pittsburgh public enemy number 1 Le’Veon Bell.
Expect a large influx of Kentucky fans especially if Snell gets significant playing time. Not only do the Steelers have Snell, they also have former Kentucky stand out Bud Dupree. Two of the most beloved Wildcat football players of all time. If they somehow get Randall Cobb, they might just get every fan in the state.
