    Agreed. He's still young. Troy and Timmons weren't great at first either and now both are fantastic. I'm confident he'll be fine in time.

    He might end up as a beast, either way I think he'll end up playing to his draft grade within three years.

    oh, and i dont want to hear how we are great and dont have that many spots open for draft picks to take over
    That's the $100,000 question. Why can these young guys start and do well on other teams but not us? I have my opinions, but lets make excuses anyway.
    1. Charles Harris-OLB, Missouri
    2. Rasul Douglas-CB, West Virginia
    3. Chris Godwin-WR, Penn State
    4. John Johnson-S, Boston College
    5. James Conner-RB, Pitt
    6. Nazair Jones-DT, North Carolina
    7. Garrett Sickels, DE/OLB, Penn State

    I agree,but I was hoping for a fast start,as this team is desperate for play makers.

    The fact that he has started on this D is already a fast start by Steelers standards.

    ....at the end of that article it said there hasn't been a 100 yard rusher yet in the AFC North. That's crazy.......
    2017 Mock

    1. T.J Watt, OLB/DE, Wisconsin - will be a huge mistake if available and we pass

    2. Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson

    3. Josh Jones, S, N.C. State

    3. Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

    4. Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic

    5. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

    6. Barry Sanders, RB, Oklahoma State (How can you go wrong with that name, however the sample size is so small that his dad may be better even in his 50's)

    I can see why, but dont agree with it.

    worilds is a bum and always has been no matter how he has been propped up by some here.

    at this point in a meaningless season, the coaching staff should be getting JJ as many reps as possible, as it will only help him going forward.

    Guys can learn from watching too. I don't see it as that bad a thing. Plus maybe it makes him a little mad and he ends up working harder to get his job back.

    If a guy is overmatched and lost out there and doing the wrong stuff, the wrong stuff can end up turning into a habit which can also be bad.
