    Jarvis is Special

    According to Tomlin, when Colbert said there's 6-8 guys that are special in this draft, Jarvis was one of the 6-8 guys Colbert was referring to.

    This pick almost seems rigged. Steelers thought they didn't have any chance at Jarvis and didn't even talk to him until he ran a 4.9 at his pro day. They said they knew then that he could fall to them. It's like he ran a 4.9 intentionally.

    And then I heard he's been working out with Ike for months. And Ike's been mentoring him. Maybe that's why we knew we didn't need Harrison and why we kept Ike cause he's been working with our 1st round draft pick for months.

    This whole back story seems bizarre.

    Ike has an insane off-season workout regimen, so if this is true then that should put any work ethic questions that were floating around pre-draft to rest.

    I'm still on Cloud 9 because of Jarvis Jones is a Steeler. Glad he's being mentored by Taylor. Now Woodley needs to step it up and help Jones out.
    Round 1, Pick 15 (15)- Ryan Shazier, ILB; Ohio State
    Round 2, Pick 14 (46)- Stephon Tuitt, DE; Notre Dame
    Round 3b, Pick 33 (97)- Dri Archer, RB; Kent State
    Round 4, Pick 18 (118 )- Martavis Bryant, WR; Clemson
    Round 5, Pick 17 (157)- Shaquille Richardson, CB; Arizona
    Round 5b, Pick 33 (173)- Wesley Johnson, OT; Vanderbilt
    Round 6, Pick 16 (192)- Jordan Zumwalt, OLB; UCLA
    Round 6b, Pick 39 (215)- Daniel McCullers, DT; Tennessee
    Round 7, Pick 15 (230)- Rob Branchflower, TE; Massachusetts

    Yup... there is an interview of Jones posted on Steelers.com. He mentioned that he's been working out with Ike in that interview. Interesting indeed....

    Can't say I'm convinced he's a 3-4 OLB, but I hope he proves me wrong.

    Thanks for the pointer, here it is:

    There's an audio on the link and transcript. Wasn't sure how to copy/paste it all. Even more good stuff.

    Why do you say this? He played in a 3-4 at Georgia.

    From Mike Tomlin...

    "It was a fun and easy evaluation," coach Mike Tomlin said. "You look at the outside linebackers in the 3-4 defenses, usually there's a projection involved. This was an easy projection ... very little guesswork.
    "He excelled in what they asked him to do and he'll be asked to do similar things here."

    That's the weirdest thing. All these rumors are going around leading up to the draft that he's got a poor work ethic and the whole time he's working out with Ike. This is like the Steelers hiding the college game film of John Stallworth from all the other teams. The Steelers were probably putting the work ethic rumors out there the whole time knowing full well they weren't true.

    I'd love to read a tell all book from Colbert one day. Or any GM to learn about all these shenanigans.

    All Chadman will say about Jones' speed is this- he doesn't look like a 4.9 guy on the field.

    I'm hoping these shenanigans (and poor 40 times) allow us to draft Keenan Allen in round 2 as well. Word got out that he was "red-flagged" for drug test at the NFL Combine. Actually, they found suspiciously high levels of water in his system. I guess the league is worried about him trying to mask something else in his system by drinking a lot of water. Maybe he just subscribes to the Bobby Boucher school of hydration.
