Najee Harris helped the Pittsburgh Steelers draft wide receiver Calvin Austin III out of Memphis live from Mexico City.
Memphis wide receiver Calvin Austin III is the newest member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, thanks to new teammate Najee Harris making the draft announcement live from Mexico City on Saturday.
The former national champion at Alabama had a solid rookie year in Pittsburgh. Though the Steelers bowed out in the first round of the playoffs, Harris is expected to be a part of the team’s corps going forward. With Kenny Pickett coming aboard from Pitt, the Steelers needed to get the ACC Player of the Year a target he can trust. Getting Austin in the fourth round is excellent value.
Here is the video clip of Harris welcoming Austin to the Steelers organization live from Mexico City.
Najee Harris makes Pittsburgh Steelers draft announcement from Mexico City
Let’s be real. These sort of draft announcements are the absolute best part of day three’s shenanigans ever year. Frankly, we get a little bit upset when a team doesn’t do something awesome like this to grab our attention on an early spring afternoon. The weather is better outside, but where else are you going to see an emerging NFL star live from Mexico City?
2022 will be a very interesting season for the Steelers. It will be the first without former franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Though Mitch Trubisky will serve as the starter initially, the sooner Pickett can overtake him the better. What will go a long way in helping Pickett in his room season out of Pitt is for Harris to have a breakout season and get his first of many Pro Bowl nods.
Here is to Harris having an absolute blast celebrating all things Steelers just south of the border.
