Speath doesnt have the speed to be a WR.....or the hands.....I guess this team is looking to be like the rest of the league...pass happy!

ummm.. i still some people get excited about this... i mean maybe but how good could he be if he wasnt even wanted for a practice squad.. sure would be nice if you could get a hidden gem.. to go with brown sanders, wallace, ward and randle el, miller, mendy and redman...

can he play dback?

Interesting to see if the Steelers will utilize him in any specific way.

I watched about 3+ minutes of this (having computer problems), and notice 2 things ~

* though talented, he rarely catches the ball at it's highest point possible (at-least what I saw here), negating some of his height-advantage

* the WVU cornerbacks guarding him in practice during this video can't-be taller than 5' 10"

it would be awesome to have a good wr 6'8'' but i wont get my hopes up. there is a reason he wasnt drafted and even though teams do find gems this way, its very low odds

nice pickup, I just hope he turns out better than sweed. He would be perfect for a fade in the endzone
