What running backs will the Steelers look at in the draft? Any indications from the Senior Bowl workouts?

I agree. He was a great find.

If the back field was FWP, Najeh and Kuhn we would be alright. I'm just not a believer in Haynes.

I liked Brian Leonard/Rutgers before the season and I like him even more now. He gave his job to more of a true TB and took the FB job.

The guy IMO is a hammer and can do lots of good things. He blasted Patrick Willis backwards in the Senior Bowl and that REALLY stuck out.


Some team is gonna be REAL happy with him. Lets hope its the Steelers!!!

I disagree with everyone who said Najeh is soft. He's just injury prone so thats his image. I've seen him stiffarm, run people over, and drag defenders. Not like ths bus, because yes, he is a "speedy" big back, but he is anything but soft. Re-sign him for cheap.

Well, anyone who saw his kick returns sure wouldn't refer to him as a "speed back". I know Heinz Field has a crappy surface, but geez... it looked like he was running in sand or something.

Still, if he could stay healthy, he's a good utility back.

I just hope we can field someone on kick returns that has the presence of mind to secure the ball before trying anything else.

Davenport does shy away from contact. I think the Steelers do need a compliment to Willie. I'm looking forward to seeing what Kuhn does in training camp and the preseason.

I personnally am not a Haynes fan. Hope the Steelers draft a big back in a higher round to give Davenport some compition and see what happens. Kuhn looked promising. Will be an interesting position to watch in camp.
