The only thing I can think.. is that we are seriously trying to go the Franco/Rocky route.

Sorry, made a new thread before I realized with one was here. Mendenhall as 1st pick. I must say I am blown away by that. Holy cow. Najeh is as good as gone now.

IDK if willie is going to be happy with this pick. I think he rather have people up in front blocking for him than a guy taking away carriers.


Willie being the NFL's leading rusher

I saw an article a couple days ago where Willie said he would be happy if the Steelers took an RB high to share the load with him. I don't think that'll be an issue.

he is a beast. easily the best value in the entire draft. he could be the best RB, and we get him at 23! damn!

and even if we need other positions, we still have a second round pick. there are definately some good players at DL and OL who will be around in the second. we can trade up for them
