    Timmons may be our best player, but that is more an indictment of our D than it is an endorsement of him. You may value you clearly above a guy like Williams, and you are probably right. But at the...

    BINGO!

    Ben was well on his way to the end of the line for him, until Haley came along. Ben would've been Eli right now (broken down, shell of himself due to accumulation of physical/mental...

    You might be right. If they think Shazier is the next Brian Urlacher, then you are right. My point being, we have a logjam of starting caliber guys at LB. If we could go back in time, does our draft...

    Sadly for him (Boyd), it says more about him. Just like RG3, and the embarrassment of riches he had at WR at Baylor.

    Hindsight being what it is, the Shazier pick may be a pick the team wouldn't make if they could do it again.

    But it isn't because he doesn't still have a world of upside. It is only because Vince...

    I think Tuitt really has the potential to emerge this year too! As for Allen, I'm hopeful like everyone. The thing that is going to be a problem for him is that he now has (more of) a bulls-eye on...

    Nail = head
    Just because Timmons' career and Jones' were somewhat similar in the early stages, doesn't make the comparison relevant. The Timmons bashers ignored his tremendous physical ability. It...

    Funny, I think LB is one of (if not) our deepest positions. We have a DEEP corps of run/hit types (Shazier, Timmons, Williams, Spence, Zumwalt, Garvin). With that group, we should have a fast, active...

    You're also assuming that the hypothetical TE in question, can't push off. There is a reason arm length is so coveted in OL. If he extends his arms and gets Shamarko off him, he's opened that 4-inch...

    On a different note: Where are Snoop Dogg and all the #firetoddhaley types, talking incessantly about Haley.

    I'm not a buyer on Holliman. I just can't imagine how a guy with 14 picks, wins the Thorpe Award, falls all the way to the 7th round of the draft. It just does not make sense, and makes me think...

    Who's your favorite pick?

    Given the draft value, who was your favorite pick?

    I don't know if it is my favorite, but the kid from the U is very interesting. Some of the things I've read say he can be suited to 3-4 DE. At...

    This sort of thing can EASILY be a blessing in disguise. A RB playing 16 games can easily be worn down by the time the playoffs roll around.

    As for Shazier/Mosley... ridiculous to deem a winner at...

    More guys like him have flopped, then have flourished. He is in-line with Steeler tradition: productive in college, team captain type.

    I don't know specific guys... I will say that we need to strictly go BPA in Round 3. In other words, DON'T reach for need (e.g. CB). We want a guy who can immediately contribute.

    I know I've had many more... one that sticks out (because we ended up picking him) was Earl Holmes. I was touting Earl Holmes (based on draft guides only) as a future stud. Then the Steelers actually...
