Preacher

Emmanuel Sanders
Analysis Release: Good, not great, quickness off the line. Has the deep speed to accelerate past the average NFL cornerback on vertical routes. Plants to get inside for slants or seam routes after taking corner upfield one or two steps.
Hands: Solid receiver who adjusts to low, wide and short throws downfield as well as leap to bring in overthrown passes. Loses concentration on catchable passes at times when trying to make something happen before the catch. Adequate vertical on jump balls, may not win the strength battles at the next level. Tracks balls over either shoulder, but lacks great flexibility to continue running at full speed. Ball security can be an issue, though, as he will hold the ball loosely as a receiver and returner (three fumbles in 2009).
Route running: Takes advantage of spread offense, using his speed to press corners and a quick shift to get the seam or corner route. Adequate body control, gets a bit loose on the run but manages to get feet down before going out of bounds. Effective on jerk routes because of his knack for crossing the field in front of linebackers.
After the catch: A bit of a long strider but flashes the ability to sink his hips, cut inside or outside, and accelerate after the catch. Best when sidestepping oncoming defensive backs and using quick cuts when running downfield. Should get a chance as a punt returner, though he must be consistent in his willingness to run straight upfield instead of running backwards or getting the corner against quicker NFL special teamers.
Blocking: Usually tries to fake defender into thinking he's going into a route to keep him out of the play instead of blocking on the line. He will get in the way or even lower a shoulder downfield against defenders focused on the ball, but his slight build and marginal effort makes it tough to him to sustain.
Intangibles: Earned his place as a team leader in 2009, getting his teammates to work harder so they could go bowling this season. Suspended for the last two games of 2008 for three minor academic and football violations. That's not a major character issue; in fact, it probably pushed him to be better.

Well, I leave for an hour to come home from work, and what happens ...

- We DON'T trade up at all despite our overabundance of picks
- We don't make a move on a bunch of guys who could've helped us and fell pretty low,
- We make another WTF pick in Round 3 at a position where we have too many guys already
- If WR actually was on our list, we pass up a better one for no apparent reason
- We've now waited long enough that the top-tier guys who fall into the 2nd and high 3rd rounds are mostly gone

Apparently, our strategy was to sit pat and wait until trading up is basically useless, then continue to sit pat and use all 10 of our draft picks as-is, and cut 7 of them.

I have this sick visual of Colbert saying "Pick that guy Mikey" and laughing at him when he does it. Its that bewildering.


Well, I leave for an hour to come home from work, and what happens ...

- We DON'T trade up at all despite our overabundance of picks
- We don't make a move on a bunch of guys who could've helped us and fell pretty low,
- We make another WTF pick in Round 3 at a position where we have too many guys already
- If WR actually was on our list, we pass up a better one for no apparent reason
- We've now waited long enough that the top-tier guys who fall into the 2nd and high 3rd rounds are mostly gone

Apparently, our strategy was to sit pat and wait until trading up is basically useless, then continue to sit pat and use all 10 of our draft picks as-is, and cut 7 of them.we have scratched every player off the board who has even smelled marijuana at a concert, which left us without about 15 players on our board.

goodell will fine us 2 first round picks if we even THINK about drafting a player who is even remotely possible of getting in trouble.

meanwhile the pats just acquired their 3rd or 4th second round pick next year for nothing.

its all abou restoring balance in the league. :doh:

My thoughts on what we could have or should have done in the 2nd.

package our 2nd and 3rd to move up and take Taylor Mays. He was taken at 17, we picked at 20. It seems to me that we have a more pressing need for depth in the secondary, as evidenced by last years collapse, than we do at outside linebacker. If either Woodley or Harrison gets hurt, we have Timmons who can step outside, and replace Timmons with Foote. Duh? Who do have to back up the oft injured Polamolu? Tyrone Carter? Ryan Mundy? Thats crap.

Also, we could have gotten back into the 3rd by trading away a 4th and a couple 5ths to the pats or broncos or something to snag a receiver if we wanted one so bad.

Does anyone agree, or am I totally out in left field.... Or in the parking lot?

Vincent
04-23-2010, 09:46 PM
Does anyone agree, or am I totally out in left field.... Or in the parking lot?

No. I agree with your thinking.

Pouncey was a good pick for us. And as bizarre as the 2nd and 3rd picks were at the time, the rationales for making the picks are starting to emerge.

But from where I stand, I'd be happier with Mays.

Florida_Steelers_Fan
04-23-2010, 09:56 PM
i really wanted Gerhart and Gilyard... Two solid offensive players, along with Pouncey, that would have made contributions immediately.

I would THEN have went all defense with the rest of my picks...

Oh, now you're just pulling things out of your ass. We NEED every one of these next seven picks for all of those can't-miss guys in the fifth round. In fact, maybe we should trade DOWN.

Believe43
04-23-2010, 10:49 PM
Worilds and Sanders may turn out to be good players for the Steelers, I just believe they both could have been picked up in later rounds and picked more needed positions in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Disappointing to see good defensive backs, offensive tackles and defensive linemen go that could have been picked. Dont see why you draft for the future from the second round on.

El-Gonzo Jackson

so we draft mendenhall in the 1st, sweed in the 2nd, wallace in the 3rd, in the past 2 years, yet gerhart and gilyard will make contributions immediately?

how so? dont get me wrong, i like those guys, but this is the steelers we are talking about. we simply dont draft plug in and play rookies (even if they are more than capable).

Lets hope for Myron rolle in the 5th. I dont know why this guy has dropped so far. He missed his senior year, so what. So did freakin SWEED and we took him in the 2ND!! Dez Bryant only played 2 games, and so did Branford. Is Rolle not that highly regarded as a player?

It seems like Colbert reads dratniks Steeler team needs...and purposely goes in the other direction.......a starting corner that sucked last year...2 other corners that can't make the most of their opportunity on the field, and in a corner deep draft he doesn't take one to come in to compete for a job, just like he did last year with the Oline and luckily we picked up a free agent to save the Kris Farris..uhhh i mean Kraig Urbick pick....instead, he takes a WR he could have probably drafted in the 7th, and OLB when he needs an ILB
