Him having a bad combine in good news (I do not care about the combine; the kid can play). Todd Haley talking to him is even better news.
I've said it several times, but it bears iteration: he is Aaron Hernandez. And, if you ask most defenders, Aaron is actually the more difficult TE to defend (not Gronk), despite what the stats say.
Correction on what I said about Todd Haley. It wasn't him talking to Escobar yesterday, it was this Steelers college scout who is the starter for the 40-yard dash. He looks like Haley, at least he did last night when I was drinking Guinness.
That other guy you like Tavon Austin ran a 4.25 in the 40 today, next fastest ever to Chris Johnson's 4.24.
We need some playmakers in the draft more than anything. I'd be real happy if the Steelers took a WR, TE, and RB with 3 of the 4 top picks. I like the same guys you like. Austin and Escobar, despite his lackluster performance yesterday) and Lattimore works for me, along with a few other similar combinations.
