Default Re: Steelers select Rashard Mendenhall with 23rd pick

IMO, mendenhall's durability is unknown. he has played only one season as a starter.

i am not knocking the pick, but to me this makes more sense if parker's leg isn't healing well.

oh well, hopefully all works out well perhaps he will be another barry foster, but with a better head on his shoulders.
All of the latest interviews with Steeler brass have them looking at more of the 2 back tandom system which tells me Mendenhall will be ready to spell Willie come official game time. What a pairing...Fast Willie and a POUNDER in Mendenhall that has his own burst of speed...No more third and coming up short when its on the line....It's ball control time.
