    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)


    To JAX 1.22 (780 pts)
    To PIT 2.36 (540 pts) + 3.67 (255 pts) = 795 pts

    2.36 OLB Eli Harold 6'3" 247 Virginia
    2.56 TE Clive Walford 6'4" 251 Miami
    3.67 CB Alex Carter 6'0" 196 Stanford
    3.87 CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu 5'9" 192 Oregon
    4.121 OT Donovan Smith 6'6" 338 Penn St
    5.160 FS Adrian Amos 6'0" 218 Penn St
    6.199 WR Stefon Diggs 6'0" 195 Maryland
    6.212 OLB Kyle Emanuel 6'3" 255 North Dakota St
    7.239 RB John Crockett 6'0" 217 North Dakota St

    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'll go with option 3...Jeff Janis WR, Saginaw Valley State. 6ft 3, 220 Lbs. 4.37 forty. 3.98 in the 20 yard shuttle. 6.64 in the 3-cone drill. A 38 inch Vertical, and 20 Reps at 225Lbs.....and most Impressive ?...He's a WHITE BOY!!

    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.
