    I don't like evaluating a player based on a highlight reel...because it excludes his lowlights, but the thing that stood out is his closing speed and his hard hitting. Two traits in common with #43.

    I read a report on Walter Football where Tony Jefferson has been getting trashed by some of his former OU coaches for having horrible practice habits and a lack of work ethic in the weight room.

    doesn't sound like the kind of player the Steelers would be interested in...

    Maybe he was focused on his academics ??????????????? Or not.

    I haven't talked with Bob Stoops but I can tell you I have seen every snap of the kids career. I think he still has a long way to develop so it wouldn't surprise that his coaches thought he should have been a better player. However his athletic ability is fantastic and I think Tomlin, LeBeau and Lake (Clark and Troy too) would do him a world of good. Hopefully he falls a bit and we can snag him in the 4th.

    Geez there's some promising looking Safeties in this draft!

    Jefferson looks good. Shamarko Thomas looks good. Matt Elam, Eric Reid, Phillip Thomas, Shawn Williams, etc, etc...Josh Evans too...

    Steelers should get a good shot at a quality player.

    Chadman wonders if the overall strength of the position will actually cause the run on Safeties to start a little later than planned? Pretty sure most draft sites have a couple of the top guys going between mid-1st & early 2nd... but if teams look at the Safety class & decide they can get 'value' in Round 3, we might not see the run on Safeties kick off until late 2nd or even early 3rd.

    Matt Elam in the 2nd round would be great.

    i was thinking the same Chadman. In a passing league you figure the QB, WR/TE, OL are the most important and DB's and LB's are on defense.

    While teams will ALWAYS recite the importance of having a good run game/ ability to stop the run, it's obvious 'Big Plays' are now the order of the day in the NFL- so passing plays, QB's, WR's, yes- the OL & on Defense, CB's & pass rushers will be the premium guys.

    Players that can create or disrupt big plays are the gold of the NFL.

    That being said, Chadman is not convinced that this current trend/theory is necessarily correct in all it's beliefs. The NFL is very copycat, so it seems most teams feel this way. But it just needs one team to be able to dominate on the ground through the running game, or on Defense, be so stifling in run defense & capable of turnovers in pass defense that suddenly other teams will want to 'be like that' too.

    Guess it really depends on which teams/coaches are the sheep, and which are the sheperds.
