Default UDFA Doug Legursky-Center/Guard

UDFA Doug Legursky-Center/Guard
By Woody Woodrum
Sr. Editor, Herd Insider magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2008


Doug Legursky, a four-year starter for the Thundering Herd at center, signed on Sunday with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a free agent. The 6-foot-3, 310-pound product of Beckley, W.Va. and Woodrow Wilson High School, was thrilled to be going to a team known for outstanding centers.


Back 44 years, only five men have been the primary center for the Steelers: Ray Mansfield, 1964-75, won two Super Bowls; the late Mike Webster, 1976-88, who also won two Super Bowls, is in the NFL Hall of Fame and won All-Pro and Pro Bowl awards a number of times; Dermonit Dawson, 1989-2000, who also had multiple Pro Bowl/All-Pro honors, including one year he got every vote at center from the media and coaches; Jeff Hartings, 2001-06, who won a Super Bowl with Pittsburgh, was All-Pro once and went to multiple Pro Bowls. The current center is Sean Mahan, but the Steelers may move him to guard. Pittsburgh signed Justin Hartwig, the former Carolina Panthers center, back in March to a two year, $4 million deal, with nearly a $1 million signing bonus, so the timing could be right for Doug Legursky, who can play center or guard.

“Right now, they are looking at me more as a guard and back-up center,” Legursky told Anthony Hanshew of The (Huntington) Herald-Dispatch. “I’m going to be working hard to earn the respect of the veterans and coaches and find my way to the top.” Legursky has been working out at the HIT Center in Huntington, and back in early March had a long-snapping clinic with former Marshall, Philadelphia Eagles and All-Pro long snapper Mike Bartrum. Legursky hoped long snapping, which he picked up rapidly, will enhance his chances of making the team.

I would LOVE to see Legursky work out. Several SF'ers had there eye on him leading up to the draft.

The fact that Legursky didn't get drafted surprized me greatly. The fact that he signed with the Steelers pleased me greatly. I thought that he may have been our best UDFA signing.

Every time I find an article on him...the word "nasty" keeps popping up,

...we could use some more "nasty" on our O-Line.

Agreed......a nasty O-Lineman is a great thing.

Especially the kind that steps on a guys inner thigh in a pile.....or a guy who grabs and twists the guys junk in a pile.....needless to say....alot of stuff happens in a pile that will make the opposition a little more hesistant to go all out against you.

Nasty O-Linemen rule!!

Legursky has the strength and the stones to play in the NFL.....He was my favorite center in this past draft class so I was glad when the Steelers signed him......
