    Jarvis Jones: I知 not James Harrison, but I love his game

    In March, the Steelers cut outside linebacker James Harrison. In April, the Steelers spent their first-round draft pick on outside linebackerJarvis Jones. Jones understands that makes people view him as Harrison痴 heir apparent.
    But Jones won稚 compare himself to Harrison until he earns it.
    的 don稚 compare myself in no way to James Harrison, Jones said at the Steelers rookie minicamp today, via the Associated Press. 滴e痴 a great player. Respect him. Never met him. But I love his game. I wouldn稚 mind being an impact player like James Harrison.
    For Jones, loving Harrison痴 game has included studying the way the Steelers play defense with Harrison on the roster over the last decade. And Jones thinks he knows the role he痴 going to play in Pittsburgh.
    典hey池e about playing hard-nosed defense and they池e about playing down after down. I see it and I know what it means, Jones said.
    At his best, Harrison played hard-nosed defense like few other linebackers in the NFL. The Steelers would love to see Jones emulate that. But if Jones is planning on playing like Harrison, he壇 better start setting aside some fine money.

    Dude needs to hit the weight room, seriously. I saw Willis on a commercial the other day and damn, that is a LB's body.

    Harrison for a few years played the most well rounded game of any 3-4 OLB ever!! Of course you'd love his game. If this #1 can have even close to the impact on games that the UDFA had then we got a steal at 17.

    Jack Lambert needed to hit the weight room also, right? Measured 6' 3" and 204 lbs as a rookie... What were they thinking when they drafted that guy with the pencil legs? How'd that turn out?

    No one mentioned yet how he mentioned James Harrison, Captain Crunch likened his situation to Jack Lambert, and the kid is wearing #95 (a number that should be unofficially officially retired AFAIC). Amazing lineage (most teams would be happy with one of those characters) the kid is going to have to live up to.

    Farrior played like a beast and I heard he had a tough time keeping his weight over the low 200s. Especially after he started training with Ike/Shaw in the offseason.

    As long as Jones has functional football strength I don't really care how much he weighs.

    Right. The days of thinking that a certain build is the guarantor of a great player should have ended long ago.
