    Me too! Sign me up. If we were to end up with a Rich Gannon type QB down the line then that was one of the best 4th picks the Steeler ever made.
    Steelers 2014 Draft

    1-Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
    2-Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3-Jordan Tripp ILB/OLB Montana
    4-Christian Jones ILB Florida State
    5-Brent Urban DE Virginia
    5-Michael Schofield OG/OT Michigan
    6-Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
    6-Ben Gardner DE Stanford
    7-Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma

    Good thing Noll seen something the fans didn't see in Bradshaw. Just sayin'.
    and how many times did Noll bench Bradshaw?? Just sayin'.

    A good scout/talent evaluater is able to look past that and see down the road. Just sayin.

    I evaluate it by watching every snap the kid ever took at OU. Go bark up some rookies tree Dub. Or check out Ras I and Rahim

    The 3 picks.... With our outstanding and unstoppable ground game we should be able to over come them

    Well, I don't think Jones will be ready to play this season...I hate to see the Steelers sacrifice a roster spot for a player who isn't going to play...

    I know there's some risk of losing Jones if we stick him on the PS, but I think I'm with Coolong on this one.

    Some other team would have to elevate him to their 53. I think he looked sufficiently unready that it probably wouldn't happen. Would be nice if we had the opportunity to elevate him first if someone actually tried to snatch him up.

    If the Steelers were willing to carry Leftwich and Batch last year, there is no reason for them to be unwilling to carry both Gradkowski and Jones this year...
