this is where i see the vision tomlin had for the steelers in the future with the drafting of timmons and woodley 1 and 2. timmons has the speed to cover a marques coulston or keyshawn johnson type receiver. timmons could essentially flip flop between a safety or lb if stuck on the field during a "no huddle". woodley is a college DE and can easilly rush the edge as an end, or lend coverage and run support as a LB. i dont think we will see the full potential of these 2 until atleast 09. until then, i think they will be great in the sub packages they show they can learn.
