WATCH: Benny Snell rips off huge gain on 1st NFL carry
Former Kentucky RB Benny Snell, Jr. has settled in nicely for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who drafted him in the fourth round of the spring NFL Draft.
He went for 23 yards on his first NFL carry on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
Snell left Lexington as a Kentucky legend after he started 27 of 39 games at Kentucky and broke or tied 14 school records, including career rushing yards (3,873), total touchdowns (48), rushing touchdowns (48) and 100-yard games (19). He became the first Wildcat to have 1,000 yards in a season three times.
Snell was second in the SEC in rushing yards last season with 1,449.
Here’s a glimpse at his first carry:
