    He did 33 reps, he said his nickname is hitman in a interview I heard today. The fourth round is probably too early for him, and the Steelers don't have a fifth I doubt he lasts until their sixth round pick.

    I started wondering this while ago. Have we had a single offensive player in for a visit? Seems like everything I've seen has been safeties and corners and backers.

    Man it seems to me like we're definitely looking to go heavy on defense. Are those qb's guys that would have to be taken early or later round players? I've heard a lot of my NCAA loving buddies at work talk about how weak the qb class is supposed to be this year but I don't know if that's accurate or not.

    I'm intrigued by Hogan from Stanford but Kessler of USC is a Simi-interesting player. I think at the top of the QB class there just isn't that eye popping talent that you'd expect to see. There are three grade B prospects and the rest are question marks.

    I would be hesitant to use a 4th on a undersized 5'11 OLB. What position will he play in the NFL?

    I would take Hogan in the 7th that's it, Kessler no thanks.

    Mac,

    What do you think about me, you, furnace and trauma breaking into the Steeler war room and getting a look see at their draftboard? A couple of cell phone pics and we'd be out in 2 minutes tops.

    Harrison is about 20 pounds heavier too and he went undrafted, Brown could probably play ILB but I don't see him making it as a OLB though.

    LOL! I could probably get in and out without a problem. I was preaching at this church that's out of a pastor this morning and I always like to try and shake hands with everybody and I missed the piano player so as she walked by I followed her all the way to the piano and when she sat down she saw me and got startled because I was just standing there with my hand out. She laughed and said "You're like a ninja!" I was like "Yeah that's what they say". Although they usually say I'm like a Ninja Turtle. But still. LOL!

    I figured they'd be interested in Cooper. Has that play making potential, contributes as a punt returner, and had some really good YAC numbers.
