    1.25) Artie Burns - CB, Miami (Mackensie Aleander)
    2.58 ) Sean Davis - S/CB, Maryland (Deion Jones)
    3.89) Javon Hargrave - DT, S. Carolina St. (Nick Vannett)
    4.123) Jerald Hawkins - OT, LSU (Deandre Houston-Carson)

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    Think the leaders are still a little pissed about the season. Good move. Draft Denard Robinson and we have a better player anyway.

    Rainey's "brother" Pouncey should beat him to a bloody puulp.

    Rainey also had a legal issue in December.

    I'm bummed on a couple of levels. I'm sorry this young man does not understand how to handle relationships with woman (and looks to have anger issues) and I'm sad the Steelers aren't going to have the exciting player I thought he'd be when they drafted him. Had high hopes he would be able to be used effectively in a variety of situations. Situation sucks all around.
