    I loved that interview. Everything I read about the guy made me happy about the pick-up, but after I watched that clip I was loving it! Great job FO!!

    I agree. I was talking about yesterday's "Open market" with guys signing with other teams... but, you are right....we could be in a lot worse shape right now. I just hope we are not finished.

    I'd be very happy with that pick Pappy. I still prefer Ebron but I think Hageman is going to be a stud DE.

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.
    He was also a 2nd round pick out of Ohio because he ran in the 4.3s, before that (even after that) he was viewed by most as a 6th round-UDFA pick. He was a project and he really grew into a solid player

    unfortunately this is true... but hopefully he works out better than Clark the last few years.

    Last year was his first as a FS as well. I think he has room to grow still, and am very excited to see what Lake can do with him.

    Yea, because Troy is so great in coverage. That is why he played 88% of the plays in the box last year.

    He played in the box because we were missing an ILB once Foote got hurt.

    Glad to see us sign a guy that Goodell likes to fine for his hits. Seems like a Steeler to me.
