I went with Washington and Kemouato, only because they came out of nowhere. I already had an idea of what Parker could bring to the table, even though he did play lights out.

Kemoeatu is definitely up there. He has played very well during the preseason. I can't wait to see more of him.

If Kemoeatu keeps improving like he has in the short time he's here, this kid is gonna be something special. He's got the attitude, the size, and the desire, all he needs is the coaching..and Grimm is certainly the man for that.

I went with Kemo, but the most impressive performances for me were from Starks and McFadden. I have heard so many negative things about both players that it was refreshing to see them perform well. Those 2 kids could really be future Steelers stars...

it's just ppl bad talking starks hoping to convince ppl that our o-line is going to suck because we're starting a nobody. and i don't know why ppl be talkin stuff about mcfadden i've heard nothing but good things about him from the staff. i love hard hitting corners, he's going to be cruical. damn i can't wait for this season to get started.

Willie and Nate! No questions in my book. And I have to say I am very excited about Nate...I might actually have a true connection to the Steelers now!!!

The exact criticisms were that Starks was an effective run blocker but too clunky and slow too pass block. The knocks on McFadden were more about his size and the fact that he isn't disciplined and jumps routes too often ending up getting burnt.

And the questions about Starks are quickly getting answered as he's improved his quickness and stability w/ his pass blocking by leaps and bounds...he'll still make some mistakes, but his upside is HUGE.

McFadden can be a beast for us for a long time.. he'll take some fine tuning but he comes to hit and he's got good speed.

Parker and Washington. But I expected it from Parker, so I voted Washington.
