While we are sitting here more than a week after the NFL Draft, the Steelers along with the rest of NFL have once again hit one of their infamous dead periods. With no real news coming in or out, let’s have some fun and change up the pace.

With today being May 4th, let’s honor one of the biggest movie franchises around and compare some of our favorite Steelers players to their Star Wars counterparts.

Joe Haden: Obi-Wan Kenobi

To start off, let’s discuss the veteran of the Secondary, Joe Haden. Haden has been one of the most consistent cornerbacks in the NFL for the better part of the past 9 seasons. He is always reliable to come up with a big play when his team has needed him most.

Like his counterpart Obi-Wan Kenobi, both can always be trusted. They will remain loyal and give it their all in pivotal moments. They also are great mentors as they teach their young predecessors to meet there full potential.

Both of these wild vets bring it every time they are on the field (or battlefield) and set a great example for others in their respective units.

Next, we have one of the most feared players in Steelers history, James Harrison. The man is a legend on and off the field, so it is only fair to compare him to a legend on the big screen.
