    Who's the biggest athletic freak among Steeler picks so far? (hint: it's not Tuitt)

    What's more impressive...Archer's 4.26 at 173 lbs with 20 reps of 225 lbs, 38" vertical, 6.86 3 cone, and 4.06 20 yard shuttle, or Shazier's 4.36 40 at 237 lbs with 42" vertical, 130" broad, and 6.91 3 cone? A couple of athletic freaks, I tell ya (and they both actually performed on the field as well, not just in the underwear Olympics)


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    They're both equally impressive, but I gotta give the edge to Archer. If you watch Archer's highlight reel, it's insane how fast he plays.

    I'm down with a new stud from Kent State.

    Consider Tuitt is nearly 2x the size of Archer and he only did ~50% more reps with 31 at the combine.

    Tuitt ' s arms would wrap around Archer 7 times. That's comparing apples to oranges. But 20 reps is impressive indeed.

    I had Janis in my mock for a while, and would be quite happy to make him the big WR option in round 5 or 6 to pair with small WR/RB option Archer from round 3 (if we don't take Martavis Bryant in round 4).

    From the way media grades for players are about out the window they might have to take Janis in the 4th if that's who they want I think.
