    Hines ddidnt really have a Holmes or Hine in front of him to fight for playing time his 1st 2 years. Would have been interesting to see how much his role would have been expanded last year if he didn't get hurt.

    Of course, immediately after they drafted Hines in the 3rd round in 1998, the team used high first round draft picks on WR's in back-to-back years (Troy Edwards 13th overall in 1999 and Plaxico Burress 8th overall in 2000).


    1.22 OLB Alvin "Bud" Dupree, 6'4" 269
    2.56 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251
    3.87 CB Alex Carter, 6'0" 196
    4.121 OT Donovan Smith, 6'6" 338
    5.160 FS Kurtis Drummond, 6'1" 208
    6.199 WR Stefon Diggs, 6'0" 195
    6.212c CB Cam Thomas, 6'0" 195
    7.239 OLB Obum Gwachum, 6'5" 246

    Priority UDFA's:
    RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217
    RB Corey Grant, 5'9" 201
    DE B.J. Dubose, 6'4" 284
    DE Martin Ifedi, 6'3" 275
    FS Jordan Haden, 5'11" 200
    P Spencer Roth, 6'4" 227

    Didn't Sweed also get some Lasik done during the one offseason...and then soon after tear his Achilles? If so, we still haven't seen how he does with that new set of eyes.



    And hey...if this guy can turn it around:




    then Sweed can too!

    Everything I read was that before the Achilles injury Sweed looked very good in OTAs. I agree that if Williams can blossom into a star then Sweed can too. It's up to him.
    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!

    He's been mediocre when healthy, chokes in the limelight and has had some sturdy injuries since then. He lets go find Bruce Davis too and see about giving him another chance. Maybe Ricardo Colclough is available too.
    Let the busts go. We were lucky enough to find some good young WRs recently, Sanders and Brown. Focus there.

    I hate to sound so negative but I have zero faith in Sweed. I just wish the other players who are on the field producing could get the same leash Sweed gets. Timmons is still on a few peoples bust list but Sweed gets eternal love.

    I know Sweed having a good season would help us but damn.... We have guys producing who get no love.

    right now, he is a bust.

    anything he hopefully winds up giving us is a plus

    for some reason, Limas just seems to lack the technical skills required to properly catch a football...

    He's had to deal with a lot of adversity...some of it his own making....

    But, with no WR drafted, Limas will be given every opportunity to make the team and contribute...

    What he is able to do with the opportunity will be up to him...

    If he can contribute, he becomes a great complement to the WR corps, bringing some different skills and attributes from the others...

    If he can't, nobody will notice...the Steelers have made it to 2 SBs with no contribution from him...
