    Keep your eye on RB Andre Ellington

    from Clemson. This kid is a Jamaal Charles clone. We all know how Haley loved utilizing Charles in his scheme. Watch for him in the second round.

    1) Cam Sutton-CB-Tenn
    2) Jake Butt-TE-Michigan
    3)Johnny Caspers-OG-Stanford

    Played behind C.J. Spiller as a frosh. Split time with Jamie Harper as a soph. Is an electric player with great burst and speed. Not a tckle breaker bt has very good speed and vision. Think LaMichael James.

    Interesting. A guy like that could really add a nice dimension to the Steelers offense.

    You would take him over Lacy? I wouldn't. Half of these smallish speed guys never cut it. You just don't know until they are in the league. The best ever smallish back was James Brooks - 180 lbs but was still an every down back that could run through traffic (something Rainy could not do) and take it to the house. He played for SD and Cinci. I recall him blowing the doors off Rod Woodson, of all people.

    Keylargo, why Lacy over Bernard?
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Lacy has done it versus the best competition. He has low mileage too, which I know Colbert loves.

    I thought I was the only one here who liked Bernard more than Lacy. To me, getting Bernard would be like adding a Shady McCoy type of dynamic talent to our backfield. Lacy was dominant in the championship game, no doubt, but I think most draftworthy RB's would look awesome behind Warmack/Jones/Fluker/etc. I just don't see that special elite quality in Lacy like I saw in Trent Richardson. I think Lacy could be what Bam Morris might have been on this level (if he didn't screw everything up, of course).


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    I'd also take Bernard over Lacy, however either would be an improvement over what we have.
