Steelers Insider - Zebadee Boyd

Post by G Waffle19 on Wed Jan 14, 2015 1:52 pm

Name: Zebadee Boyd
Position: SS
College: Tennessee
Pick: 1st Round 28th Overall 2015 draft

At the end of the 2014 season, the Steelers traded whom many thought was the future heir apparent, Shamarko Thomas, to the Redskins in the package deal that brought Robert Griffin III to Pittsburgh.  Troy Polamalu was coming off a very solid 2014 season, and the Steelers were looking to the draft for the future SS of the team.  They did not plan on finding a player like Zebadee Boyd.

Coming out of Tennessee the Steelers had Boyd rated #1 on their SS board.  Knowing that they trading down from 15 to 28, they did not believe there was a shot that Boyd would fall to them, and were planning on drafting another player or position when it came to be their pick.

Lone behold, Boyd starts falling down the draft, the Steelers thought about trading up, but held fast, hoping he would fall.  The Steelers drafted Boyd, hoping he would be able to take the reigns from Polamalu in a year.  Needless to say, they were surprised as anyone when Boyd came in first day of training camp, and wrestled the starting job away from Polamalu, who was cut at the begining of the 2016 season.

Boyd won Defensive Rookie of the Year honors in 2015, and many in Pittsburgh believe him to be an All-Pro snub in 2016.  Boyd has taken over as the face of the franchises difference, and Coach G Waffle couldn't be happier with this kid.

Good write up man Boyd is very good for sure but to turn up the heat and the fun Boyd found a way to beat them browns this year but yet has no answer for these Bengals thus far as we have drafted a stud running back whom won oroy opoy and HB of year and our own stud rookie droy and pro bowl mlb in Conner Neal. The Bengals are getting ready to pick another franchise player in 1st round of this draft to close in on those browns for this upcoming season also but for now in the steel city of Pittsburgh there still waiting on an answer to beating these Bengals and there organization but rumor has it there may be a trade in the works were the steelers figure can't beat um might as well join them as a player or two may be transferring to the steelers and maybe with them comes the Intel to how to beat the bengals

Boyd is a beast of a SS. Nice grab at the end of round 1.
