Default Steelers hold first mini camp practices

The Steelers opened mini-camp on Friday with two practices and it was the perfect chance for head coach Bill Cowher to see how the rookies stack up.

?The one thing I saw with the seven-on-seven just getting lined up, and a little bit of the speed (of the game), there were some of the young offensive linemen getting indoctrinated kind of fast,? said Cowher. ?We don?t waste any time getting blitzes and everything else the very first practice. I think it is a good gauge for them to see what this next level is going to be about. It is probably going to get worse before it gets better.

here's the rest

There were no pads and no hitting, although someone had to explain that to rookie cornerback Bryant McFadden, who looked as if he wanted to knock someone's head off over the weekend.

McFadden, a second-round draft pick from Florida State, had a bang-up minicamp in more ways than one. He took a few liberties on the field, including a full-body bump with wide receiver Cedrick Wilson on the final play.

"Bryant has been impressive in the three days that he has been here," coach Bill Cowher said as minicamp came to a close with one practice yesterday morning. "He is very bright and has picked it up quickly. I like the demeanor that he has exhibited on the field."

I just have a good feeling about this kid, more than I do for Ike or Coc, but you never know?

Same here Cleve. I watched some highlights of the guy and he looks very promising. I can't wait to see him play in a NFL game.

Kendrell Bell did similar hits in mini camps his first year too, and he had a helluva impact for us, when he was healthy.. so yeah, this kid could be the real deal and make for some interesting camp battles.
