Butler participated in the Steelers鈥?2017 rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. He played 33 games in his college career.

The velocity speaks for Authentic Malcolm Butler Jersey itself, but what else did you see from him that made you think he was ready to make such a drastic leap?

Matheny: We didn’t see him much last year. He wasn’t in camp with us. He was barely in camp with us this year. But there is a disposition on the mound, a confidence, and then there is execution. But talent trumps all. You talk about high velocity, but the thing I talk about is the amount of movement with that velocity. He can control the strike zone.

Johnson was the sixth running back selected in this year鈥檚 draft and comes to Detroit after three years at Auburn. He ran 285 times for 1,391 yards and 18 touchdowns in his final college season.

Johnson joins a backfield that also has Ameer Abdullah, LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick in the mix for carries as the Lions try to find their first 1,000-yard rusher since the 2013 season.

I want to be like Mike Trout, Acuna says. He also wouldn’t mind ending up like fellow Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera, the inspiration behind the No. 24 that Acuna has always worn on his back. I want to be at that level. I want to be great. I want to get to the big leagues, stay in the big leagues and play for a lot of years. Everything that comes with it. Be an All-Star, win championships, all that.
