    Steelers spend time W/Daimion Stafford Nabraska FS On Thursday

    At his Pro-Day, they worked him out with drills and had a lenghtly conversation, considered to be a late round pick or an undrafted player.

    I watched him play against Penn State. Here are my notes....

    Plays smaller than listed 220. Appears stiff and slow in coverage and pursuit.

    ...as a side note, it is hard to evaluate back half safeties with normal TV coverage as often they are cut out of the picture for the beginning of the play.

    I wonder if the Steelers are considering if he can put on 10-15 pounds of muscle and play ILB.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Which position coach worked him out? That will tell you what they are thinking.
    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 know the Steeler's linebacker coaches were at TCU's pro day yesterday (according to Walter Football) to check out Maponga. But, maybe the Steelers don't want to tip their hand.

    Mean Joe ran the practice & Olsavsky was there, but Olsavsky is the "Defensive Assistant" or something... Butler was working out Lemonier.

    At 6'4" 230 pounds, how would Cooper Taylor, safety from Richmond, look as a potential convert? He ran a 4.6 40yds so has some wheels and some size.

    Why convert him? Have you seen Kam Chancellor? Taylor and Chancellor were very similar players in college. I would love to see a SS the size of Taylor in our defense.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Got him in my mock as a S and would keep him there as I agree with you. Just wondered if they didn't like him a S if he would be a potential convert project. I would be all for a huge S to beat up on the bigger WR and TE. I think Tomlin wouldn't allow a white S to be drafted though.

    I agree about him being a good convert to ILB project, but I don't understand the racial thing you added.
