He said to me: "If this Roethlisberger kid is at #11 and the Steelers don't take him? I'M DONE.." Sure enough, Ben fell and the rest is history.
The next year? He says "I like this Heath Miller..Tight End Virginia..."
Uh, rest is history lol.
in all seriousness.. your dad SHOULD work in the scouting team or even the front office. he'd be the wize old man advising on the spot-on picks!
