Why no comments on his other results? He verted 40.5 he broadjumped 11.5. Is that not hard to believe stuff?
Very few combine WR's were even remotely close to those #'s. Justin Hunter was one.
Incidentally, I saw a mock somewhere today that had TS taking Hunter. Hmm! Now it makes sense.
btw: I thought that N. Iowa might have been Aaron Smiths school. But no! He was N. Colorado. I don't think TS have ever drafted a player from Northern Iowa. It is a Div1FCS school however,[formerly called Div1AA] the same as the Citadel C. Allens school.
I don't think there is any other receiver in this draft who can replace Mike Wallace. MW production was off the chart..
Is there a true #1 WR in this draft?? I like Tavon Austin a lot but not in 1st Rd though...
Rd 1: Cordarrelle Patterson - WR
Rd 2: Sio Moore - ILB/OLB
Rd 3: Christine Michael - RB
Rd 4: Shamarko Thomas - SS
Rd 5: Lerentee McCray - OLB
Rd 6(a): Ryan Griffin - QB
Rd 6(b): Micah Hyde - CB
Rd 7: Vince Williams - ILB
Moreover, the Steelers will need to divert resources to the WR position that could have been used to address one of the many areas of need on the team.
But keep making asinine statements and strawman arguments.
The Steelers will be fielding a fairly unremarakable WR group at this stage, with more question marks than answers. What we do know is that Cotchery won't stretch the field. We also know that Sanders have never proven he can be a starter. And despite what many want to believe, Brown really needs to prove his worth on that contract- the stats don't look good. With that in mind, with no genuine strike power at WR, the opposition Defenses will crowd the LOS, making it more difficult to run the ball. Now the Steelers had trouble running it last season, and by returning the uninspiring Dwyer/Redman combo, things don't look to be dramarically improving there. So our below average run game now has to contend with 8 men in the box. That's not the recipe for success.
the icing, of course, is that Heath Miller is unlikely to be fit for Round 1, and will most likely take several weeks to get back to full fitness.
25th might be generous.
