    2009 Hood
    2010 Pouncey

    I'd hate to be in a trench with this crew

    Disagree as usual. He has been solid playing a thankless position in LeBeau's scheme which under utilizes DL.
    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!

    lol.

    he has been mr. invisible.

    terrible fit as 34 DE, not really his fault, i guess.

    but blame lebeau, per the usual.

    Keisel did less than Hood, to be honest. In fact- can anyone name a Steeler DE that has done more than Hood in his first 3 seasons over the last 20 years?

    I did research this in the past, and I know Aaron Smith made a significant impact by the end of his 3rd year. Truth be told, we haven't really drafted guys to fill this role, at least that I can remember. Donald Evans, Ray Seals, Kimo, Nolan Harrison...

    I'm with Eddie. You expect a first-rounder to do more than be a body... I still have hope though, that he'll emerge this year into a stud. As I type that, I realize how much of a long-shot that is. I think even his supporters would agree with that. (Guys typically don't wake up and start dominating in their 4th year.)

    Hood is very strong and takes on blockers, neutralizes them and the linebackers clean up. I Steelers have a top-defense and Hood plays a significant role. He makes an occasional individual play. I think he has done his job well thus far. I expect him to get better in the next few years. Guys who stray outside of the defense and try to make a lot of indiviidual plays can hurt more than they help. Hood is very cognizant of that, so he played in a constrained way.

    Wonder what it will look like if Hood goes to NT with Heyward & Keisel as his wingmen.

    That could be why they have not yet targeted a NT in this draft.. I kind of expected it in the 3rd. If no NT in the 4th, then the FO must have another plan (e.g. Hood) or be really happy w/ Mclendon
