ray rice is not better than stewart, mendenhall or mcfadden... i'd say he's better than felix jones but not by much...

Matt Ryan will be drafted high...but I totally agree with you. He has enough Red Flags to make me think "Bust".

Which of these underrated players would you be willing to select for the Steelers in one week? Of course I dont think that we can call OG/OT Branden Albert or RB Jonathan Stewart suprises anymore can we?...



Underrated players

OL Branden Albert, Virginia*
Too big, strong, smart, versatile and athletic not to excel in either guard or tackle capacities.

OG Mackenzy Bernadeau, Bentley
Has the quickness and athleticism to contribute readily at guard, if not tackle. Knee injury suffered as senior forced many teams to overlook him.

CB Tyvon Branch, Connecticut
Big, strong, physical and heavily involved on special teams, all that Branch lacked as a senior was due praise.

RB Tashard Choice, Georgia Tech
Supercompetitive, natural leader with the mental toughness to earn a starting job and produce when his number is called.

CB Reggie Corner, Akron
Terrific ball skills and great instincts should allow him to compensate for his lack of size.

MLB Curtis Lofton, Oklahoma
What he may lack in foot speed, he more than compensates for with great playing instincts and a nose for the ball.

WR Jordy Nelson, Kansas State
Came into the season with little fanfare and repeatedly arose to the occasion vs. better competition. Size, smarts and quickness could make him difficult to contain.

OT Drew Radovich, USC
Does not look the least bit the part but consistently gets the job done and is a solid, functional football player.

DE-OLB Bryan Smith, McNeese State
First-step quickness and overall athletic ability could allow him to excel in either a linebacker or speed-rush role once he bulks up.

RB Jonathan Stewart, Oregon*
Overall ability to run inside, catch and block is unsurpassed in this year?s RB class. Toe injury that he played through and ran with at the Combine has been overblown.

TE Tom Santi, Virginia
Deceptively athletic and assignment-sound, Santi has quietly flown under the radar but will earn a role as a productive player in the pros.

C-OG Fernando Velasco, Georgia
Not even invited to the Combine, Velasco is a team captain with the smarts, versatility and strength of character to become a solid pro.

IMO Kirk Barton and Carl Nicks are underrated. I think it's because the OT class is so deep.

I saw some of Jordy Nelson's film, and I would love to see him in a Steelers uniform. IMO Nelson is possibly the most underrated player in the 2008 draft. He reminds me of Hines Ward, only taller. He would be a good replacement for Hines once he retires.

I'm still hoping the Steelers have their eye on Akron's Jabari Arthur. Big strong fast converted QB playing WR for just a couple years. He loves the game, is raw but coachable, and has a ton of upside. We're talking 6th Rd only, but he's the kind of guy who could contribute ST right away, learn WR for a year, and he's got that "slash" factor as well.
