Just wondering what your basing this info on. I sure hope its true... but I think we don't even know enough to know what we do and do not know about this kid.

If you base it off of his college performance, he's right on.

Hard to judge college performance on a one year starter.

Your correct...but the point is how hard is it to judge one year starters and how they will do in the pros...(Much less those who never started OR even never went to college)

Too true, and all of our hope. However, there are many that have not been able to make that jump.

Here's hoping he does.

Until he is healed, and out on the field playing, we just don't know what we don't know.

A bust? Not even worth discussing. Next HOF'er? Again, not even worth discussing.

I just want the kid to heal. Then, get in and play a few snaps with the 3rd and 4th string. Just to get the game mind going and make sure the groin holds out.

Yup, but the Steelers weren't the only ones who thought the kid was a Top 20 type of pick. I'll trust the guys who do it for a living in you know what I mean.

I completely understand what you mean....its like the competition at RB right now...the coaches will keep those who have proven themselves in practice and on the field...not just by preseason highlights.
However...PFW had an excellent article (which I posted just before the draft) about a VERY strong trend in first round players with less than two years starting experience and the potential for that player to be a dissapointement...they showed the last 4 years draft and it was scary/interesting as to the percentage that either busted or underperformed.
That being said...there are always exceptions to the rule and Timmons DID play behind ernie Sims who was a very productive player.

Yup, and even though he only started one year, he saw playing time both years before that. Freshman don't usually go down to Tallhassee to sit on the bench the way they've done at some other schools around the country. Plus you have to look at Floirda State's track record with defensive players in the NFL. Sure, Steelers fans feel burned by Alonzo Jackson, but that doesn't mean we should overlook other FSU studs like Deon Sanders, Derrick Brooks, Dexter Jackson, Samari Rolle, not to mention the Steeler's own Bryant McFadden and former Steeler Chris Hope.

I'd say that Floirda State's track record helps erase some of those doubts about Timmons only starting one season.
