    The Steelers have a long history of moving linebackers... Timmons and Farrior were both collegiate 4 - 3 OLB's who moved inside for them. Chad Brown played inside and out for the Steelers over the course of his career. They never have subscribed to the idea that a guy is stuck at or solely suitable for a single position in the LB corps... at least not under Cowher or Tomlin.

    That's what Timmons/Spence would be. Heck even Timmons/Foote kinda are.

    As much as teams throw the ball, the need for a thumper becomes antiquated to a degree. Outside of a handful of teams, there's no commitment to running the ball anymore. So how often do you really want a pure Buck on the field in today's game.

    When they drafted Spence, I was really excited because I had this feeling that the Steelers D was ahead of the curve on this one.

    And Timmons/Foote suck together... That's exactly why ILB is a consideration at all in the first...

    Remember when in the past, if we trailed and the team punted with 4 min left, we knew we'd get the ball and win... that's a thing of the past with those 2 on the field together... This team still needs a run-stuffer, IMO.

    expected to be drafted in the 4th or 5th round, he caught 5 passes for 142 yards against Alabama.

    he actually reminds me a little of Emmanuel Sanders...

    Interesting. Steelers showed interest in Landry Jones too- wonder if this is a result of that interest, or if the Steelers always had their eye on Brown?

    It seems so. I am curious about 2 of them, if they ever really happened. But I will sort that out if we bring in more than 30.
