Too much circus surrounding him. I doubt the Steelers get him now.

That NCG was embarrassing...couldn't shed blocks and whiffing on open field tackles

Its more critical they kick ass with their first couple of picks this year....as they're close to being in full rebuild mode

If they can't get an elite pass rusher then Im hoping they trade back and get Elam and an additional pick

If they're really sold on Vaccaro then Id be ok with that too at 17

I wouldn't have a problem with drafting Vaccaro or Elam, but we wouldn't see them on the field for another two years, since they'd be playing behind two pro-bowler's in Clark and Troy. So that would be delayed ass kicking.

The thing is, that Te'o and Notre Dame played some pretty mediocre competition like Navy, Michigan St. Pitt, Purdue, etc. No way do I think he is worth the #17 pick. Look at his last 5 game totals....

- Pitt....7 tackles
-Boston College.....5 tackles
-Wake Forest.......6 tackles
-USC....................5 tackles
- Alabama...........10 tackles

Statistically his best game was the BCS game, where he was a non factor. Great stats against weak competiton and skipped the Senior Bowl?? I dont think he is as good as James Laurinitis or Dan Connor. 2nd round pick at best.

Troy has been doing more piano playing for Head and Shoulders then playing football for the Steelers recently

I think our backup safeties will, unfortunately, once again be getting decent minutes

Te'o is overrated, IMO. Bama was as close to NFL talent as he played all year. He looked lost and very average.

True indeed, Troy is hurt far more than I'd like to see, but as long as Troy is healthy, he's on the field and not Vaccaro or Elam. I'd rather have Troy Clark and Te'o on the field than Spence, Elam, and Clark.

This. I'm not interested in taking him anymore and quite honestly, he's not even the best Inside Linebacker in the draft this year. Minter, Brown and, if he pulls his head that seems to be really far up his ass, Johnson are all more intriguing prospects.

I guess the argument against this point is 'he thought his girlfriend had died and was distracted by the whole hoax thing' but I'm not buying that. I think he looked average against great competition because, frankly, they knew how to play against him.

Jarvis Jones may very well be available when we draft at 1(17)...


Jarvis Jones Expected To Slide on Draft Day

Published Jan. 18, 2013
By Charlie Campbell - @draftcampbell

Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones had been one of the most dominant football players in college football the past two seasons. He's destroyed the SEC for those two years, as many consider him to be one of the most talented players in the 2013 NFL Draft class. Jones is on top of my 2013 NFL Draft Big Board, as well as ESPN's Mel Kiper's.

However, after speaking with scouts at the East-West Shrine Game who have Jones in their territory, they say they expect Jones to slide down and fall out of the top five next April.

The scouts said there are a few reasons that could add up to Jones falling into the 6-10 range. First of all, the scouts said that Jones is not a good workout guy. They don't believe that he is going to test well or stand out in the Combine or pre-draft workouts. Area scouts who cover Georgia say that Jones is not a weight-room guy. He doesn't put a lot of work in during the week, but would show up on Saturday and dominate naturally.

They said that Jones is a good guy and a good teammate, but just isn't a tireless worker. As one scout said, "Don't get me wrong, if you watch his tapes you'll say he is worth being the No. 1 rated player and going in the top five of the draft. You can watch him on Saturdays and see that this guy is animal. He's clearly the best player on the field, but not a guy that you'll be in love with during the week. Add in the medical concern and with the testing, and I think he's going to slide some on Draft Day."

Jones' medical condition is a spinal stenosis that happened as a freshman at USC. On a routine hit against Oregon, Jones sustained the injury. A specialist told him he would be fine, but USC's doctors wouldn't clear him and told him he should retire from football. After transferring to Georgia, Jones broke out as one of the best players in college football.

As a junior, Jones had 85 tackles, 14.5 sacks, 24.5 tackles for a loss, seven forced fumbles, three passes broken up and one interception in 2012. Jones had massive performances against Florida and Missouri with consistently good outings all year. Jones led the nation in sacks and for the second straight season had the most sacks in the SEC.

In 2011, he tied for the second-most sacks in the nation, 13.5. He also had 70 tackles with 19.5 tackles for a loss and two forced fumbles.

Jones could be a classic example of teams overthinking the draft process. Over the history of the draft, good players have slid because of an unnecessary medical concerns or not working out well at the Combine. If Jones plays in the NFL like he did at Georgia, he'll reward whomever takes him on Draft Day with plenty of teams feeling regret.

Yes, and we should also use extreme hyperbole as we authoritatively pronounce our grand generalizations from on high. Let's do it!!

That's what I was thinking as I watched that game. Bama sure ain't Pitt.
