    It looks like:

    10 linebackers

    9 defensive backs

    8 offensive linemen

    7 defensive linemen

    5 runningbacks

    4 specialists

    3 tight ends

    3 wide receivers

    2 quarterbacks

    And a partridge in a pear tree...

    Is minicamp basically drills and such? I would think there would be an attempt to install some basic knowledge of the offensive and/or defensive scheme...but, there are a lot of DBs vs. very few WRs...
    I want gay married couples to be able to protect their marijuana plants with guns.

    I hear that the team was also going to get in contact with La'el Collins, but they were afraid that the fanbase would see it as a panic move and proof of failure of the Mike Adams pick.

    Hopefully, Colbert does not allow the fanbase to factor into making football decisions...

    I guess the 12 Days of NFL Christmas is from the start of the draft until the end of rookie minicamp. Except that the Steelers have 6 golden rings instead of 5!

    This kid might make for a good special teams player but not sure how you get him on the roster? http://fishduck.com/2015/03/dior-mathis-did-what/ I think they do need to expand the game day roster. Oh and yes another 2 short CB. LOL!

    It's back to football for Steelers rookies

    Posted 16 minutes ago

    Teresa Varley Steelers.com

    The Steelers rookie minicamp is in full swing and players are happy to be on the field again.

    They have gone through the whole gamut since their college season ended, from training for the combine, to the NFL Scouting Combine, to pro days and then the NFL Draft.

    On Friday it all paid off when the Steelers rookie class, including draft picks and undrafted free agents, took the field for the first time at the team’s three day minicamp.

    “It went well,” said cornerback Senquez Golson, the team’s second round draft pick. “It felt good to get back out here and get my legs under me and run around a little bit. It’s been a while since I played football. You can’t overlook the training part. That is the part when you perfect your game. It’s good to be almost done with training and into football season.”

    Something as simple putting a helmet back on for the first time in months was a welcome diversion from all of the talk and speculation that led up to the draft, and the evaluation that has come since.

    “It’s good to put the helmet on,” said fourth round selection Doran Grant. “I hadn’t put the helmet on since the Senior Bowl. It’s good to be out here playing football.

    “It went well. Got a lot of hustle in, listened a lot and got to be out here with the fellas. It was a good day.”

    Wide receiver Sammie Coates, taken in the third round, had sweat pouring off him after the morning practice with unseasonably warm temperatures making it feel like the middle of training camp instead of spring, but he loved it.

    “I enjoy football. Any part of it I enjoy,” said Coates. “It’s competing, the atmosphere. You love it, enjoy it. It felt great. It was hot, it felt great.

    “It’s football. I love it. I am happy to be back out there. It’s been a long process through the draft and the combine. It feels good to be out there with this helmet on and going at it. You just want to play. Being out here with a team function…it feels good to be out here with these guys.”

    The biggest challenge facing the rookies was the amount of information thrown their way in a short time as they went from meetings straight to the field, but for the most part they are handling it well and adjusting just fine.

    “We got a lot of new things,” said Golson. “I think I will be all right. Towards the end of practice I started to catch onto things a lot better.”

    He wasn’t the only one who started to feel comfortable the longer they were on the field.

    “It’s a little bit (hectic), but not too much,” said Grant. “I am focused on making plays and just hustling.”

    Steelers' rookies ready to get to work

    Posted 22 hours ago

    Teresa Varley Steelers.com

    Steelers' rookies arrived in Pittsburgh on Thursday for minicamp.

    Doran Grant walked into the Steelers locker room on Thursday afternoon, took a look around, and immediately saw a familiar face. Grant, the cornerback the Steelers selected in the fourth round out of Ohio State, was greeted right off the bat by linebacker Ryan Shazier, his former teammate with the Buckeyes and a player he refers to as being like a brother.

    “As soon as I walked into the locker room I saw him,” said Grant. “You get to come in and see some familiar faces and you know what they are going to give on the field, they know what you are going to give.”

    Grant, along with the majority of the Steelers rookies, arrived in Pittsburgh on Thursday and started taking care of details, from being fit for equipment, to having headshots taken, and any medical testing needed. Then on Friday it will be on to the field for three days of showing why the team drafted or signed them.

    “It’s exciting to be here, to actually be in an NFL program,” said Grant. “It’s actually crazy. I am speechless right now.

    “It’s here, it’s now, and I am ready to get going.”

    Fellow rookie Gerod Holliman, a safety out of Louisville who was taken in the seventh round, felt the same way.

    “It’s been really good so far,” said Holliman. “I am really excited to be here and I am just looking forward to getting out on the field and showing what I can do. I am just coming to showcase my talents and be a part of this organization.”

    Holliman, who has been to Pittsburgh once before when Louisville played the University of Pittsburgh, said seeing Heinz Field as he came from the airport was a special thing.

    “My goal has always been to play in the NFL,” said Holliman. “Being able to pass the field where I can potentially make my mark is very overwhelming. That is something I get joy from. I can’t wait to get out there.”

    Fifth-round pick Jesse James is no stranger to seeing Heinz Field. The tight from Penn State is from Glassport, Pa., just outside of Pittsburgh. And it’s a thrill for him to be a member of his hometown team.

    “It feels great to be back in Pittsburgh,” said James. “I am ready to work and get to work with these guys. I couldn’t be happier for the opportunity the Steelers gave me. I am excited to get out here and get to work this weekend.”
