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!
I'm real high on this kid. I think he has the tools to make a terrific NFL safety.
Golden also played some corner in college, so he can be the de facto 5th corner as well, since we only kept 4 CB's on the final 53. The more that you can do...Tomlin loves that flexibility. I think Golden could be the primary backup in Denver to both Troy and Mundy (since Clark will obviously not be in the lineup) because I'd say that Golden is a better option on defense than Will Allen already (Allen is pretty much a special teams only player at this point...actually surprised they kept Allen this year over Cromartie-Smith...probably because DCS still had another year of PS eligibility left). In nickel defense in Denver, we should see Ike, Keenan, Cortez, Troy, and Mundy as our 5 DB's...it will be interesting to see if they use Golden or Curtis Brown as the 6th DB when we go into our dime defense.
Final Ruthless Mock:
1.22 CB Marcus Peters, 6'0" 197 lbs., Washington
2.56 FS Damarious Randall, 5'11" 196 lbs., Arizona State
3.87 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251 lbs., Miami
4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
6.212c OLB Max Valles, 6'5" 251 lbs., Virginia
7.239 RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217 lbs., North Dakota State
yep, we should cut all our RB's except dwyer.
he can do it all every game.
He kinda reminds me of former Michigan RB Mike Hart. Hart was a smart player, who made it (don't know if he's still around) simply because he was dependable and smart. Batch is the same way. These guys are good for overall character of the team.
