Thread: WR info. Marquis Maze

    WR info. Marquis Maze

    It looks like the steelers have a ton of WR's.

    Marquis Maze sounds interesting on his wiki page. Any info on him? Maybe another Sanders? He sounds like Brown more after reading on draftscout.

    Steelers announce a dozen rookie free agents, including Marquis Maze

    Posted by Mike Florio on April 29, 2012



    The Steelers are the latest team to disclose the acquisition of rookie free agents who have signed with the team after the conclusion of the draft.

    The 12 new Steelers are: P Drew Butler (Georgia); CB Terry Carter (Louisian Tech); WR Connor Dixon (Duquesne); S Robert Golden (Arizona); DE Ikponmwosa Igbinosun (Southern Connecticut State); C/G Ryan Lee (Furman); LB Brandon Lindsey (Pitt); WR Marquis Maze (Alabama); K Grant Ressel (Missouri); LB Adrian Robinson (Temple); OT Desmond Stapleton (Rutgers); and DE Jake Stoller (Yale).

    Maze is the most intriguing of the bunch. A receiver and return specialist who was a key member of the Alabama offense and special teams, Maze could provide a significant spark for the Steelers — if he first can make the team.

    Thanks HS. But I was thinking maybe Deedub or SKL had some insight. Heck anyone's insight from this board.

    I believe if Marquis Maze is going to make this team it will have to be on special teams returning punts and kickoffs. at under 5'8", I think he's too small and will struggle to make it as a receiver.

    I think there is going to be some KR/PR competition in camp/preseason.

    Yup...with Brown entrenched as a starting WR now, we'll need some quality return men...should be fun to watch the likes Chris Rainey, Marquis Maze, Derrick Williams, etc. returning kicks and punts in Latrobe (certainly better than the days when we had Mewelde Moore fair catching punts or Gary Russell/Najeh Davenport rumbing/bumbling/stumbling on a kickoff return).

    Maze is just a guy at the NFL level. He does not have long speed and is very small. He was a reliable chain mover for Alabama and has very good body control and quickness. He will likely struggle against NFL defensive backs. Rainey will likely beat him out as KR/PR.

    We do have a wide open competition for the 5th and perhaps 6th spot (if we keep a 6th) WR on this team.

    Derrick Williams, Marquis Maze, Toney Clemons, Juamorris Stewart, Jimmy Young and a few others will all have a shot to earn a spot on this team. Special teams coverage or return unit value will be a huge plus.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I loved Maze at Alabama. The guy made plays time after time on the biggest stages. I think he makes the team if they keep 6 WR's.

    With Rainey and Maze, Clemons and Batch, there should be some interesting competition for the last few roster spots among the skill position players.

    I'm intrigued, but he shoulda signed somewhere else. He's gonna have a hard time given that the Steelers drafted He Hate Me II.
