Default Limas Sweed and Merrill Hoge

heres an impressive little story.

Solomon Wilcots was just talking about a conversation he had with hoge on the golf course. hoge was at the recent rookie symposium (or whatever) and sweed came up to hoge and told him he admired his work and asked anything he should look out for, any advice, or anything he can do to make himself a better player.

hoge told wilcots he's never had such a young player approach him like that.

to me, it shows alot of character, maturity, humility, and willingness to do anything to become the best player possible for the steelers.

i am convinced anybody who didnt have sweed as the #1 wr prospect on their board will be proven wrong.

oh, and hes tall.

It looks like we have a rare personality for a WR. From what we have heard so far, this kid seems like a total team player and football junkie. He doesn't seem to possess the prima dona attitude we've all become accustom to in WRs.

Going back to the Woodley thread, or what we've heard of RushHard, it seems like we have some young, tremendous quality, talented football players. The future looks very promising.

Limas is going to be one of Bens favorite targets soon. Our receving corps will be one of the best for years to come. And we got Mendenhall!!!!!

Sweed should make a fine addition to our organization. I look forward to his first regular season TD catch.
