He seems like a good guy that we might be interested in. After all, we may be in the market for another linebacker. I mean, the numbers for his 40 and jump speak volumes about he might be in the future.

I read an article where he was quoted talking about the new faces that would be playing next to him after the suspensions had been handed out for the mass brawl.

Im deducing from that he didn't play an overly large part in the actual brawl if he wasn't suspended himself.

I wouldn't mind the Steelers taking a shot at this kid. He has the size and speed to play OLB in the 3-4. The need for pass rushers is huge for the Steelers.

Statistics don't mean everything (Best ever WR = 4.6 40.) That being said, Unbelievable performance. Remember what happened to Matt Jones! Anyone know how good he played against the top schools they played last year? Also, what are Suggs characteristics & how good is he?

Ya I like his speed and size. Depending on his injury history, he might be a great pickup that we could form into a force that everyone talks about, never know. He could even be a day 1 starter since we have a new coach and Tomlin playing the best players we have on the field, no favorites. That 4.43 speed makes him great for outside, and dropping into coverage. Will see come draft day.

He was recruited by top schools such as Miami and LSU, but went to a smaller school because they seemed to want him more

He sounds pretty good and I like the smaller school products they just seem to have more desire to work hard and make it in the NFL

right on. I think a lack of pass rush last year in cetain situations really hurt us, and put too much pressure on the secondary to hold coverages for too long. A guy like this in the 2nd round would be an excellent get.
