This team wound up kicking far too many field goals in the red zone last year.
The more I listen to Benjamin talking, the more I want him over Evans. For whatever that is worth as a fan - I'm not getting "good fan vibes" from Evans. I'm not hearing very good things about Benjamin's route running consistency, however, what is he like down the middle/vertically? I've also heard he loves setting up the run game and coming from a receiver - that is the perfect attitude to have coming to the Steelers.

Anybody that can give me more insight into Evans' attitude and intangibles v. others (like I'm thinking Robinson from Penn State in the 2nd round or should we not go near him?)
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
