Sid, IDK, two of your selections have me in a gray area. Gildon still has the all-time team sack record in the history of the Steelers. Obviously, he must have been great at one time. But - and you mentioned it - the way he fizzled out his last two seasons did leave a bad taste in my mouth. Not so much towards just him (because if they are still going to pay you millions, what are you going to do? Not take it?) but towards the team and Cowher. I was ticked off that they couldn't see what we were all seeing, which was Jason playing "titty" battles out there, not really doing anything. He had a respectable 9 sacks in 2002, but only 6 in 2003, and we saw those were just garbage time sacks vs. crappy teams. I remember when the team was trying to talk JG up, to sucker some team into making a trade for him, with Peter King actually playing along, reporting that JG was still a very good player. What lies. No one fell for it. He went to Jax for one 3 sack season. Why didn't they trade us a first round pick for him?

I'm shocked that no one has mentioned guys like Sean Mahan, Tim McKyer, Cedrick Wilson, Ricardo Colclough, etc. yet.
Final Ruthless Mock:
1.22 CB Marcus Peters, 6'0" 197 lbs., Washington
2.56 FS Damarious Randall, 5'11" 196 lbs., Arizona State
3.87 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251 lbs., Miami
4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
6.212c OLB Max Valles, 6'5" 251 lbs., Virginia
7.239 RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217 lbs., North Dakota State
Might as well throw in Scott Shields and Jeremy Staat. I hated the McKyer signing. Cedric the Entertainer wasn't that bad. Colcough was garbage.

We all remember when he got hurt and when James Harrison had to snap the ball. This guy has been with us since 2005 and anyone who has attended training camp can quickly tell you how awesome Greg is with the fans. Not only Underrated but that position itself is UNDERRATED.
