    Anyone watching the Combine which is underway?

    Oline and RBs today.

    2 OL that I like:

    OT Garrett Bolles
    OG Dan Feeny

    Bolles will probably be a late 1st with Feeny as a 2nd.

    Bolles is 25 years old. Could be a negative but he is physically mature. Both guys have nasty demeanours.

    I don't see the Steelers drafting any OL, at least not early.

    You are probably right. I am concerned about our OT depth though.

    That being said, I think we have bigger needs at LB and in the secondary.

    I get the issue about our depth at OT, but with Harris and Hawkins I think we will be okay.

    we gave hubbard an offer and we also have mihalik, hawkins, milton, and harris is still here for now. i think they like mihalik. they got him back off of the lions PS after losing him to them and he stayed on the 53 man roster the rest of the year. he did play pretty solidly in preseason for us. hawkins played well before getting hurt too. they met informally with the kid from fla. st. i saw. http://www.steelersdepot.com/2017/03/steelers-meet-informally-fsu-t-roderick-johnson-combine/

    James Conners 40 time is not the end of the world.. his other tests are what concern me.

    omg so excited to watch it when I have time. This week took forever for Friday to come rolling around. I thought it started Monday and set the DVR but they were replaying the 2016 Combine :facepalm:. Cue Chris Farley "Idiot" head slap.....

    They have hubbard, and hawkins who can play swing tackle, besides AV is a durable guy with 29 starts without missing a game....

    I saw where the NFL has sent LB Reuben Foster home from the combine for having a heated exchange with a medical examiner. Fighting at your job interview is always good, right?

    kittle of iowa ran a 4.52 and had an 11' broad jump. i like kittle but didn't think he had those jets. i'd move him right up the boards. kittle can block too.

    my other guy plinke ran slow. probably didn't go after that speed coach. :cool:

    Howard secured his spot atop the TE list, nailed the tests and just looks better than the rest to me.

    Engram looked good and is fast but he might as well be a WR at 233lbs.

    The guy I like, Everett tested well but wasn't as impressed with his routes as I was Howard.

    Howard jumped way up on my list, depending on whats left at 30, I'd grab him for sure but would be happy with Everett in the 3rd.

    been saying all along Howard is a stud ...didn't need the combine to convince myself and a no brainer at 30 too bad he will be long gone

    I was on the road all day yesterday and listened to it on Sirius radio and Pat Kirwan who I like a ton was talking about Adam Shaheen TE Ashland. 6-6 278lbs, 9 5/8 hands, 33 1/2 arms. Another one of them Basketball turned Football players, big time pass catcher and redzone target. Hit on him is he is a poor run blocker, but just throwing this name out as one to look at.

    PS 4.79 40

    OJ Howard just moved way up on the first round list, at 6-6 251 he ran a 4.51 40 and was just impressive all day, he is going to go top 10 to top 15 in this draft....

    I hope so. I also heard Mayock say that he thinks Engram is a 1st rounder as well. I want some of these TEs to push a decent edge guy down to us.
