Default Re: 3rd round OG Essex

From Pittsburgh Live... Lacks ideal height but has bulked up considerably, causing him to lose speed and agility. ... Moves well for size and has quick feet. ... Must work on technique. ... Scouts report sometimes doesn't play to full potential and needs to increase strength to be reliable NFL lineman.

I still don't like the pick. He's big yes... but this write up has him as just another average OL in the league. I think if we really wanted him he would have been there 4th or 5th round. I still like Elton Brown who's a nuclear bomb in the running game and well... this is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Run or die.
