AWESOME!!! This draft is amazing so far, one of the best that I can remember in my lifetime.
DL Coach Mitchell just had a presser. Here's some notes:
Says he's not worried about his weight. With the nutrition plan in place and daily work, his weight won't be a problem.
He did the double team well in college, and that's what we want most especially when we bring the safety in the box.
Coach Mitch was happy he got him when we got him.
Gonna start him off at nose and see how he does and take it from there.
The back up nose has to be able to know how to play end.
Can't answer if Casey will be ready to play.
Gonna start from scratch when Ta'amu gets here.
College is behind him, what's here is in front of him.
He's a NT that we feel he can get penetration everytime.
We keep it simple, you eat up two, someone else will make the play.
Hold your opinion about mcclendon until the season is over.
Garrett Giemont will determine where he needs to play at.
Then, coach Mitch will get him and determine where he'll go from there.
They'll take their time and determine where he'll play.
30 credits from graduating.
LOVE the pick!!! As others have said, I wouldn't have been upset if we took this guy in round 2. And to get him in 4?!? Pumped!!
it wouldn't suprise me if they use our 7th to move up in the 5th like they did with the 6th in the 4th.
What do you guys think in Round 5? Some guys I have my eye on...
S - Martin or Robinson
CB - Norman
WR - Childs
I don't think it matters what happens from here on out. This has been a successful draft. Ta'Amu is a HORSE! 6'3" 348???!!! Get outta here!
With 3 extra 7ths, it would make sense - if they can find a buyer.
Two guys I wouldnt mind at this point:
George Iloka, FS
Cyrus Gray, RB
martin would be nice to get. tandy.
I like to see them use on of the 7th to pick up that FB from Wisconsin Bradie Ewing
Our pick is coming in...
With the 24th pick in the 5th round of the 2012 NFL draft, The Steelers select Chris Rainey RB Florida
Chris Rainey- Running Back from Fl.
not a move i expected... not sure how i feel about Rainey yet. has to be purely special teams if anything. they're already stacked for the most part at RB.
Not the type of RB we had before.
10 yard split: 1.47, best at combine
20 yard shuttle: 3.94, best at combine
60 yard shuttle: 11.06, best of all RBs
3 cone drill: 6.52, best at combine
good solid pick. all-purpose yards will be big. scatback extrodinare. he got more moves then exlax. homerun threat from anywhere on the field. tee heeeeeee. it's like Christmas.
Mayock says he had some off the field issues and if he cleans it up and keeps nis nose clean then the Steelers have stolen a real Gem. Can catch,return kicks, very fast scat back
Titans just picked Markelle Martin. Tandy's still on the board.
Streeter a Rat I see.
What didwe trade a7th for?
Oops, that wasthe 6th
With all these 7th round picks, they just have to be looking at a DB. The question is, are there any left that could make an impact this year?
Safety maybe, got a lot of 2nd and 3rd year CB's from much earlier rounds.
NFL Network - Best value in the draft
First guy picks Luck
Next picks DeCastro
Next picks Ta'amu (can we call him on bad Ta'amu, like we did Fu?)
what about Delano johnson with one of these 7s?
