    Players I dont want

    I have bandied about many names of players I do want the Steelers to take and have changed my mock multiple times,BUT, I do know i dont want any of these guys

    Bruce Campbell-see Tony Mandarich
    Mike Iupati-I see too much holding and questionable technique
    T.Cody-FAT FAT FAT
    Golden Tate-way to many drops ( idont see the Ward comparisons)

    I agree about Campbell, Cody and Tate.

    I'm still witholding my reservations about Iupati. I think there needs to be alot more film work and digging to see if the Senior Bowl was an anomoly or the "real" Iupati. I also think they need to make sure he has the intellect to get selected at #18 and can learn complex schemes.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Cody ran like he was FAT, FAT, FAT...

    some NFL teams were reportedly able to time Alabama DT Terrence Cody with a sun dial as he ran a 5.65 40.

    I think he got a 15 which by the way was the same score I think Terry Bradshaw and Dan Marino got. It worked out OK for them.

    I am more interested when they talk to him face to face and show him film can he describe what is going on and make the proper reads.

    Do you mean drops in practice?
    And Mr Fat will blow alot of minds when he enters the league.

    Drops during his workouts at the combine and drops he had in big games against Michigan and Pitt

    yeah. I hate Golden Tate. He runs well after the catch, but in college (even with his timed speed) he struggled to get open vs good corners. I wouldn't touch him before the third.

    I think Iupati will be a very good pro guard. But, I think he is a bit of a project with his wonderlic and his poor technique.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    If you are basing this on one game--an exhibition game--then I think you would miss what scouts are seeing...

    He is being comapred to Steve Hutchinson by many scouts.

    I may have to add Micah Johnson to the list. His 40 time of 4.99 was horrendous and his vertical was only 29". I guess we will need to see what his other tests show, but right now he looks to be slow and not have a lot of leg strength. Spikes also only had a 29" vertical and DNP'd on the 40 and the BP. AND what happened to Rolando McClain? Was he injured or was Weatherspoon showing him up so badly that he decided DNP?
