    I agree with Eddie. Moats is a decent signing.

    The "Crazy Eyes" picture made me think less of him for some reason...

    Guys Vince Williams is too limited to play in todays NFL. The writer speaks of loyalty...come on. It's about winning. Williams wasn't good enough...if he was he would be starting. They are trying to put packages together that allows them to play against no huddle...guys who can cover and thump. Hence the reason Spence is the #2. Williams would have been a decent ILB a decade or two ago...now? He is a guy who can fill in...in a pinch.
    1. Carl Lawson-DE/OLB Auburn
    2. Marcus Williams-FS Utah
    3 Jake Butt-TE Michigan
    3B. Raekwon McMillan-ILB tOSU
    4. Samaje Perine-RB OU
    5. Eddie Vanderdoes-DT/DE UCLA
    6. Josh Malone-WR Tennessee
    7. Tarik "The Human Joystick" Cohen-RB/WR/PR, NCA+T

    Williams will be a "role" player. He will make his living on ST, goaline, & short yardage. He can stick on a roster as a spot starter. He's the type of LB an OC attacks in his gameplan. There's no place to hide in football...No right field. Love the fire & passion though. He needs to work hard at his role & continue to get better at his position. He will be limited at LB....But there is room for a guy like that with the ILB depth chart in front of him.
    2017 Draft:
    1st Njoku TE
    2nd Willis OLB
    3a Maye S
    3b Witherspoon or Griffin CB
    4th McNichols RB
    5th Dobbs QB
    6th Evans ILB
    7th Jones OLB

    If either of our do-it-all three-down ILB's Timmons or Shazier go down, there won't be just one guy replacing him. It will likely be Vince Williams getting the early down work, and Sean Spence on passing downs.


    Ruthless 2017 Mock Draft:
    1.30 ILB Zach Cunningham 6'3" 234 Vanderbilt
    2.62 OLB Jordan Willis 6'4" 255 Kansas State
    3.94 CB Sidney Jones 6'0" 186 Washington
    3.105c DE Tanoh Kpassagnon 6'7" 289 Villanova
    4.135 CB Howard Wilson 6'1" 184 Houston
    5.173 FS John Johnson 6'1" 205 Boston College
    6.213 TE Michael Roberts 6'4" 270 Toledo
    7.248 RB Elijah Hood 6'0" 232 North Carolina

    I think VW is the primary backup to Timmons at the Buck LB, while Spence is primary backup to Shazier at the Mack. For example, if Shazier can't go this wknd, I think Spence will start next to Timmons, rather than move Timmons back to the Mack and start VW at the Buck.

    Hes got the right idea though, that might be how it is listed at the end of the day but if either starter went down I think those two would rotate situationally until one takes control of the job

    The Steelers have 1 true OLB on the roster. Worilds. The rest are ILBs or 4-3 OLBs at best.
    JJ is the only exception but has yet to prove it.

    Based on he actually has gotten sacks unlike "Mr. One Sack" opposite him. Worilds has never had an issue pressuring the QB.
    1. Charles Harris-OLB, Missouri
    2. Rasul Douglas-CB, West Virginia
    3. Chris Godwin-WR, Penn State
    4. John Johnson-S, Boston College
