The Pittsburgh Steelers ended their 2011 draft by picking Texas Tech running back Barron Batch.
ESPN’s draft analysts do not think much of Batch, sharing that:
Batch is an average-sized back who doesn?t have great power or speed. He also has had some problems protecting the football and been nicked up a little too much.
Obviously Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin saw something in Batch that Mel Kiper missed.
