    Tomlin Giddy Like a Little Girl Over Jarvis

    Just saw the Colbert/Tomlin presser about Jones and Colbert mentioned Jarvis running a 4.9 at his pro day meant they had a chance to get him. When he made this reference, I saw a reaction I've never seen from Tomlin before. He was giddy, giggly.

    Tomlin's always laid back and professional and says the right thing. The way he reacted, you could just tell he think we stole the best player in the draft.

    Was Jones sandbagging to become a Steeler?

    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB

    I'm convinced yes. Jones in an interview has said he's been working out with Ike for 3 months and Ike's his mentor. Everyone's been questioning Jarvis' work ethic for the last 3 months and this kid's working out with a work out freak. It's so weird it makes me think the Steelers put out the rumor that he has a bad work ethic while Ike's down in Florida probably showing him the Steelers playbook.

    It might make sense if Ike was working out with some up and coming WR or CB from Louisiana, but why this OLB from Georgia? Makes no sense whatsoever.

    He did say he was getting picked with the 17th pick and was pretty sure of himself. Not in the mid-teens, but specifically pick #17. Goodell will launch an investigation soon!

    Why you guys get so hung up on 40 times is beyond me. Jarvis Jones is fast/quick where he needs to be. 5-15 yards. He has great instincts. He is never going to run a straight line 40 yards on the football field. Like Ruthless said, if he does then something terribly wrong has just happened.


    Steelers 2014 Draft

    1--Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma State
    2--Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3-- -- Traded --
    3B--C.J. Fiedorwicz TE Iowa
    4--Jordan Tripp ILB Montana
    5--Brent Urban DE Virginia
    6--Michael Schofield OT Michigan
    7--Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State

    I'll agree with you on part with this. One thing I do like about Jones is his 33" arms. That is a long set of arms for a 6'2" dude. Hopefully he can get stronger and use it to his advantage.

    Or something wonderfully right; i.e. James Harrison ... Super Bowl I know what you mean though. Personally, the pick is growing on me (I guess it had better, because we don't get a "do over" lol).

    For years, Tomlin has watched players that he would love to draft come off the board before his pick....

    To finally land a defensive star that should have gone much higher...Tomlin finally feels giddy...
