    Good signing, he may be soft on the run...but does he deliver a punishing hit when tackling! Glad he is replacing Clark...and is OVER 6'0"!! A good, yet..sneaky signing! I just hope we aren't done with free agency neither! We have the draft to pick up on our spots, nice to see safety being crossed off the list! So far our route on #15 is starting to add up now! Just think if we draft Dennard or Gilbert? DAYUM!
    Round 1, Pick 15 (15)- Ryan Shazier, ILB; Ohio State
    Round 2, Pick 14 (46)- Stephon Tuitt, DE; Notre Dame
    Round 3b, Pick 33 (97)- Dri Archer, RB; Kent State
    Round 4, Pick 18 (118 )- Martavis Bryant, WR; Clemson
    Round 5, Pick 17 (157)- Shaquille Richardson, CB; Arizona
    Round 5b, Pick 33 (173)- Wesley Johnson, OT; Vanderbilt
    Round 6, Pick 16 (192)- Jordan Zumwalt, OLB; UCLA
    Round 6b, Pick 39 (215)- Daniel McCullers, DT; Tennessee
    Round 7, Pick 15 (230)- Rob Branchflower, TE; Massachusetts

    As long as he tackles the player I could care less if it a "punishing hit" that makes ESPN highlights. I'm more interested that he can intercept some passes
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    My biggest gripe about Clark was he was always headhunting and not looking to play the ball in the air.

    I think the solid start was extending Troy and Heath, getting Ike to accept a pay reduction, and cutting ties with Lamarr. This signing is the next step to putting the team together, they are almost ready to draft without having to fill any glaring needs.

    I'd also like to see us add a ILB or NT through free agency so in addition to offense at #15 we could look a some DEs like Hageman or Tuitt.
    Hageman is the pick regardless.

    Let me tell you what I like most about Mitchell. Check out the video in that link...his interview. That is exactly what the Steelers need right now.

    Mitchell has a reputation for being poor in coverage. He was a bust in Oakland. One year of solid play with a great pass rush in front of him is all he has. I would have taken Malcolm Jenkins and the deal he signed over Mitchell. Carolina fans and analysts agree that pass coverage is not his strength. Even if he was listed as a FS, this guy plays like a SS and excels in that type of game. Hopefully, he proves to be a better pass defender, but I have concerns.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    Leadership is an undervalued quality among fans. I'm looking forward to seeing him in the Black and Gold.

    Then move him to SS and Troy to FS
