NASHVILLE, Tn- Kentucky football’s All-Time leading rusher will be bringing his tough running style to the “Steel City.”

Benny Snell Jr. was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 122nd pick in the fourth round of the NFL Draft in Nashville.

A need at the position was opened after Le’veon Bell departed to the Jets in the off season. Pittsburgh was without Bell all of last year and relied on James Conner to fill the starting role. Conner is the expected starter heading into the summer.
