Zack Brown is a freak athlete, but has been ignored by the Steeler nation. He is a pick that I believe would be a good one, and would shock most fans.
1.25 CB Eli Apple-DB-tOSU
2.58 SS Vonn Bell-DB tOSU
3.89 DT Javon Hargrave-SC State
4.123 DE-Matt Judon-Grand Valley State
6.220 RB-Tyler Erwin-San Jose State
7.229 WR Geronimo Allison-Ilinois
7.246 QB-Cody Kessler-USC
He is a great athlete and would be phenomenal as a nickel LBer rushing the passer and covering TEs and RBs. But, teams like Baltimore would run right at him all day long. He does not take on blockers in the hole. He is unwilling to meet the fullback head on. Unless, he changes his mindset, he would try to run around Vonta Leach and would not maintain his assignment. This would be a huge problem. The Steelers (and most 3-4 linebacker teams) will not employ a finesse only linebacker.
Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
urbik couldn't beat out foster or legursky while he was here.
I find it funny that because he starts in buffalo, he would somehow be a star here.
when did buffalos offensive line become the NFL's gold standard?

I don't think the bills line is the gold standard but it seems to be much better than ours. I seem to recall them leading the league in rushing for most of last year until injuries to the line and Jackson got to them. Also, whenever I hear people talk about the Bills line Urbik is one of the guys mentioned as one of their good young players. I'm not saying Urbik is the second coming of Steve Hutchinson ... just that he would have improved our line.
The Bills have a better interior line than us right now (Andy Levitre, Eric Wood, Kraig Urbik), but they seem to be hemorrhaging tackles. The Eagles signed Pro Bowl OT Jason Peters away from them a few years ago, and when Peters went down with an Achilles injury recently, Philly swooped in and took OT Demetress Bell away from them too. Of course, we also got OT Jonathan Scott from them too, which I'm sure is a HUGE loss.
