    Speculation on the Practice Squad

    Only two guys who I am pretty certain they would like to get there are:

    Jordan Zumwaldt
    Wesley Johnson

    Really can't figure out who else...thoughts?
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Landry Jones
    Waters
    Blanchflower
    Richardson
    Howard Jones
    Moye ( i think hes eligible)
    Justin Brown (biggest disappointment of the preseason so far)

    I think Brown will make the final 53. Every projection I have seen has him on it.

    For a guy who was supposed to be fighting for the #2 spot, and at the very least the #3 spot he has a whopping 2 catches for 9 yards thorugh 2 preseaspn games despite playing a ton of snaps.

    I hope he does make it, I was believing the hype, but hes a TC hero as of now

    Looking like 5 or 6 rookies make the final 53 (Shazier, Tuitt, Archer, Bryant, McCullers and possibly Richardson). 22 total rookies listed on the roster as of today. Another 14 with 1 yr of experience. Tough to even make the PS.

    I haven't heard anything about some of the O-linemen ( Emmanuel McCray - 6'5"/316 or Will Simmons - 6'5"/342 or Chris Elkins - 6'4"/300). Any of them worth trying to develop? Line seems thin after the starters.

    I guess the question is... is the 2 for 9 Brown's fault or the fault of the guys taking the snaps while he's in the game? From what I've seen of Jones and Grad so far...it's a wonder any of them have a catch.

    Just heard on ESPN that teams will have 10 practice squad players this season.

    Most of them being some of those linebackers.

    My guess on the 10: Branchflower, Zumwalt, Richardson, H.Jones, Moye, Justin Brown, Mauro, Nick Williams, Tauren Pool, Brendon Kay
    Round 1, Pick 15 (15)- Ryan Shazier, ILB; Ohio State
    Round 2, Pick 14 (46)- Stephon Tuitt, DE; Notre Dame
    Round 3b, Pick 33 (97)- Dri Archer, RB; Kent State
    Round 4, Pick 18 (118 )- Martavis Bryant, WR; Clemson
    Round 5, Pick 17 (157)- Shaquille Richardson, CB; Arizona
    Round 5b, Pick 33 (173)- Wesley Johnson, OT; Vanderbilt
    Round 6, Pick 16 (192)- Jordan Zumwalt, OLB; UCLA
    Round 6b, Pick 39 (215)- Daniel McCullers, DT; Tennessee
    Round 7, Pick 15 (230)- Rob Branchflower, TE; Massachusetts

    It's still early to go through everyone who has a shot at this but K Moore is PS eligible and he has impressed and with 5.5 wr's looking like a lock ahead of him he likely is headed there.
