    So Who Is the New Stud?

    What player on the Steelers squad is going to step up and be the next great Steeler on offense or defense? There always seems to be a player every year that steps up and becomes a difference maker. Last year it was Antonio Brown!! Who do you guys think it will be this year.

    Chris Carter? The guy has looked solid in the preseason with his ability off the edge to get to the QB. He gained valuable experience playing a ton of snaps with the first team this summer. It looks like he could share time with JH early on and could give the Steelers the ability to rotate Harrison and Woodley out to keep everyone fresh.

    Chris Rainey? The kid could be electric not only on offense but maybe more so on special teams. He has an uncanny ability to break tackles and has exceptional speed and open field ability. This kid could be a big play guy for the squad this year, and appears to be a steal in the 5th round.

    Jonathan Dwyer? The kid had a great preseason not only running the ball but also showing the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. I believe he will take carries away from Redman early and could show enough that he will be in the RB rotation all season.

    Cortez Allen? The kid has a ton of natural ability and even though he has some more growing to do he could turn himself into one of the best CB's in the league. The potential is definitely there.

    Keenan Lewis? Could this guy finally solidify the CB position opposite Ike Taylor. He has shown the ability to stay with just about any receiver he has faced in the last 14 months and has really improved over the course of his first 3 seasons. Could he take that next step and become a potential Pro Bowl CB?

    Ziggy Hood/Cameron Heyward/Steve McClendon? Can these guys show that the Steelers do have young talent up front with the ability to replace old stalwarts like Brett Keisel and Casey Hampton. The Steelers better hope so considering the spent 2 First Rounders on 2/3 of these guys.

    What do yinz think? Who is the next Antonio Brown or Mike Wallace??

    An impressive list in every group. Every one of those players has a really high ceiling. But, since as they say, things start up front I'll go with your DL group.

    You said: "Ziggy Hood/Cameron Heyward/Steve McClendon? Can these guys show that the Steelers do have young talent up front with the ability to replace old stalwarts like Brett Keisel and Casey Hampton. The Steelers better hope so considering the spent 2 First Rounders on 2/3 of these guys.

    Really like this group. But for the future stud I like Heyward. Even though he is not starting he gradually is getting better and better. I can see him as a regular pro-bowler in future years.

    More surprisingly, no Lewis love. Or Worilds. Or Heyward. And those look to be the 3 guys along with Cortez who are poised to be key cogs in this defense for the future.

    I think we all fell in love with Hood's workout hype. And his physical transformation. He may still be a decent player in the long run. He at least seems more dedicated.

    Chris Rainey will be making splash plays all year long.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.
