5 down - 2 BIG ones to go. Sweed and Mendenhall should both be happily signed by TC.

I would say they wanted to get the lower draft picks sighned first now they can start working on the two big ones.

it will be hard to not keep all of these players drafted with us through the season. Humpal is regarded as a top 3 best 2nd day draft choice according to espn.com.

Both Rashard Mendenhall and Limas Sweed seem to have good heads on their shoulders. They should realize that will not be starters anytime soon. Unless Mendenhall puts on some "Adrian Peterson" season. Then, he would want a pretty big contract deal. But that is something he cannot bank on. Both will sign good and fair deals.

I remember us hoping for Godfrey before the draft. Oh well...... CONGRATS TEX!!

Have to get out my old Hayden Fry sunglasses in Humpal's honour.

Can' wait - making my first trip down this year - can you say pumped.....

Unfortuntely the top round picks usually have a domino effect as they each try to gage what they are worth based on others drafted around them. Most don't want to be the first signed but hopinmg the Steelers just get it done........
