One of the many attributes Pittsburgh Steelers rookie defensive tackle Keeanu Benton possesses is power.

For his size, Benton has a rare combination of explosive power and athleticism, which is part of what made him successful in his junior year at Wisconsin.

During OTAs this afternoon, both of these aspects were on full display to the delight of head coach Mike Tomlin during one of their pass rush drills. Tomlin's approval can be heard when he says, "I like it."

So far, Benton has impressed throughout this offseason process, but time will tell whether or not he can replicate what he has shown when the official training camp begins later in the summer.
