I think you did a good job in identifying good 'steeler type' players...

but we can only bring in 30 guys, however, colbert said in his pre-draft conference that they have talked to around 85 guys in all, via pro days, combine, etc. so i am sure that a lot of these guys we talked to in some for or another

He's basically TO attitude without the talent to back it up.

Here's my guys:

RB's:
Tim Hightower (Richmond 6'0" 226) ~ 4.58
Jalen Parmele (Toledo 6'0" 224) ~ 4.47
Keon Lattimore (Maryland 5'11 222) ~ 4.58
Lance Ball (Maryland 5'9 220) ~ 4.56
Xavier Omon( NWMSU 5'11 228) ~ 4.52

WR's:
Ernie Wheelwright (Minnesota 6'4" 212) ~ 4.50
Jabari Arthur (Akron 6'4" 224) ~ 4.57
Mark Bradford (Stanford 6'1" 211) ~ 4.49
Bruce Hocker (Duquesne 6'3 209) ~ 4.65
Micah Rucker (East. Illinois 6'5.5" 217) ~ 4.47
Darrell Blackman (NC State 5'11" 210) ~ 4.42 (KR/PR/RB/WR)


OL:

Frank Dunbar (MTSU, 6'4 327lbs) ~ 5.58 (OG)
Mike Butterworth (Slippery Rock, 6'7 320lbs) ~ 5.32(OT/OG)
Walter Walker(South Florida, 6'5 324lbs) ~ 5.38 (OG)
Thaddeus Coleman (MVSU, 6'8 308lbs) ~ 5.48 (OT)
James Blair (Western Mich., 6'3 328lbs) ~ 5.28 (OG)
Ian Yates-Cunningham (Virginia, 6'3 296lbs) ~ 5.36 (OG/C)
Andrew Bain (Miami, 6'3 325lbs) ~ 5.25 (OG/C)


It's 3:20 AM.. I'll do the rest tomorrow.



OP.. few things.

1) Frank Okam is TERRIBLE. He's lazy, and doesn't get the push/have the fire to make plays. He's Orien Harris part deux.
2) Joe Clermond is way too slow to play OLB. He's slower than Haggans.
3) Kennard Cox can't cover his own shadow.
4) Rubin is overrated as he doesn't really command double teams nor will he be an inside stuffer like Casey or Hokie.
5) Eric Foster would be a utility DL in our scheme. he's at 275lbs now. He'd play 3-4 WDE as a passrusher, 4-3 UT as a passrusher and St's. He wouldn't be a full-time 3-4 OLB.

He's basically TO attitude without the talent to back it up.

I disagree. He's more like Michael Westbrook attitude. He doesn't seem lik he wants to play football.

Might be. He has an attitude, and it clashes with him playing football.

if Jalen Parmele and Micah Rucker are really that fast, then screw J.Stewart and L.Sweed; let's get those two!?

I don't think people realize that for a RB you can't really see the difference in a power RB.
