    Tyson Jackson - Fraud

    Tyson Jackson was considered one of the top two or three d-lineman in the NCAA this year. I've watched him very closely as his skill set and size could make him a candidate for the 3-4 end.

    I think he'd be a poor fit for the Steelers because he often takes plays off, gets blown off the ball by a single OT, and, when he does get penetration, can be neutralized by fullbacks and larger blocking backs. He is athletic and sometimes looks like a game changer as he chases plays from behind or sifts through trash to make a tackle. But, I'd be disappointed if we wasted a 1st round pick on him. Hopefully, he'll be gone before we pick.

    Other opinions?

    As much as I hate to admit it......maybe Oveido is right.......maybe we should look at moving to the 4-3 sooner rather than later. It seems increasingly more difficult for the team to find quality DL upfront in the 3-4. I don't wanna see it happen but I think my man might be right out of necessity alone.
