What is our opinoin about Tom Zbikowski outta ND? I'd like him with a 3rd or 4th Rd. pick. Can return punts, is tough as nails and could maybe help shore up the other safety spot.

CB should come before a S in the draft, but whadda ya think?

He was sweet in college but is projected to be drafted around the 5th or 6th round so i think we could get him late and he could make the 53man roster. Love the idea.

Would be good value in the 4th. It would also make Tyrone Carter expendable.

I think he would make a great steeler.

If we could pick him up in the 4 or 5th round I say get him.

Might not be able to return punts in the pros...a little overrated. Should be a good backup and special teamer.

yeah, he has a nose for the ball, but less gifted as a FS than even Anthony Smith. He's not a shifty returner, but experienced so could return KO, and at least feild punts in a pinch. Most likely a backup SS.

Did anybody see his bench press at the combine?? While encouaging him, John Lott refers to him as "Rudy" because he is from notre dame. Zib stops benching and with the bar locked out says to Lott....."don't ever call me that again".

I was intimidated by him just sitting on my couch. He would be a great Steeler in later rounds.

A good player. Get him in the 4th or 5th and you know you're getting a hard worker and a tough guy.

I feel like the 4th round is too high. The fact is he's maybe backup saftey and a special teams player. The 5th round would be the place for him unless someone is really reaching.

I'm just not sure he's a fit with the current system.

I simply don't see him being anything more than a special teams player. Everyone needs a special teams specialist like Steve Tasker, but how much value do you assign to that player? I don't believe it's a 4th round draft pick.

Well why use the pick on him , he might be there in the 5th 6th or 7th?

I think it would be great to have him but he still hasnt made up his mind if he wants to be a boxer or play football

I think he may fall to 5 or 6... Al ot of you are thinking the same as me... tough guy... really seems like a Steelers type guy. Sometimes I think some players are just 'meant to be' a fit somewhere. I still think Poz was last year @ LB.

If he's there late, i hope they take him!

I don't think that Zbikowski gets out of the 3rd round. If you want a late round S, you might take a look at David Roach out of TCU.
