2) Jordan Matthews-WR Vandy
3) Chris Borland-ILB Wisconsin
4) Caraun Reid, DT Princeton
5) De'Anthony Thomas-RB Oregon
5b) Ryan Carrethers-NT Arkansas State
6) Jeff Janis-WR Saginow Valley State
7) Colt Lyerla -TE Oregon
So who goes? Palmer? Gordon? We have 9 LBs & 6 CBs...What is 5 TEs or 5.5 if you count Johnson? I'm ok with it if he could get on the field over the next couple weeks. I think it is time to stop hoarding TEs before the NFL mandates the Steelers to do a TV series about it. Moeaki has the same amount of catches with the Steelers as Palmer & Gordon. Dispose of one of them for Moeaki & I'm good with the signing. With Bell starting to look comfortable out there...12 personnel PA or even 22 personnel PA could really start to get big chunks & keep BB clean.
If he is healthy, Moeaki can be a weapon. If if he is not all the way back this year, I'd be surprised if he wasn't better than Palmer, Gordon or Paulson.
His health is the unknown, but if he can get no the field, he could be a nice pairing with Heath.
