Re: Readying for Steelers Training Camp: A Q&A With Jim Wexell
[/QUOTE]JW: I think the return men, Wallace and Burnett, will help right away. When I asked this spring if Burnett would be active even if he doesn't know the complex nickel CB responsibilities, Townsend pointed out to me that Allen Rossum was active every game as a return man, the only year he was here. Urbik would have to pass Essex in order to get to RG, but, then again, Essex is the top backup at both tackle spots, so Urbik could play. Keenan Lewis would need an injury, but I'd make him a darkhorse for team Rookie of the Year honors because of the skill he showed in the spring. I'm certainly no scout, but he looked fast, strong and smart at CB. Ziggy Hood of course will see time as a pass-downs DT.[QUOTE]
He has some good thoughts about our rookies. He did not mention Summers hopefully he will see some playing time also.
