    He doesn't want any more 2-3 TE sets. The coaches cannot be tempted to use multiple TE's if there is only Heath on the roster.


    1.15 WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
    2.46 TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
    3.97c ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford
    4.118 CB Philip Gaines, Rice
    5.157 OT James Hurst, North Carolina
    5.173c RB Jerrick McKinnon, Georgia Southern
    6.192 CB Walt Aikens, Liberty
    6.215c DE Deandre Coleman, California
    7.230 NT Zack Kerr, Delaware

    Does he want Ben standing up? I think this signing is more about blocking and pass protection than receptions. We all know that Johnson is terrible blocking as either a TE or quasi-FB. Saunders is still an unknown. Pope will contribute in the red zone but really he will be able to help both Gilbert and Colon at OT on the edges with his blocking abilities.
    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!

    2014 Draft

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB
    7a. Aaron Colvin, CB
    7b. Storm Johnson, RB

    I think Saunders is about to make a name for himself as a receiving TE this year in training camp. I think Johnson is out.

    I believe Pope was a 1st round pick for the Cardinals in 2006 or 2007. Does anybody know what year he was drafted? I like the signing as well!!!

    I would think that Pope replaces Wes Saunders. Pope is too tall for H-back duties so he won't take David Johnson's job. Hopefully the kid from WVU beats out David Johnson or get a real FB.

    Thought I read somewhere that he was a third-rounder in 2006. Could be wrong, though.

    Following article says that Pope graded out very poorly in run blocking and racked up 10 penalties. Yuck.

    Wow ... that doesn't sound very good. We might as well stick with DJ because I don't think he has had that many penalties called on him.
