Sweet,Kudla will be a beast.

On one of these threads someone ripped Kudla's 40 time..... its gotta be faster than Kriewaldt dont ya think????

Give the kid time to learn Steeler D and he might be a typical Steelers UDFA/late round choice who develops into a productive player. Would anyone be shocked????? Doubt it.

Hey with the other LB`s at that school, someone had to go unnoticed

4.7 40 isn't bad (Hell, Hawk only ran a 4.6), and I'm assuming he'd be competing at ILB, where you can be a little bigger and slower. Kudla plays a smart game, and will make up for any lack of athleticism with disciplne and football smarts.

But he's competing for one of the premier spots on one of the league's premier defenses, so he may not make the cut.

Short arms is something difficult to change. He must be super tenacious to be overcoming that kind of disadvantage.
