Default RB

reminds me a little of barry foster. keeps legs churning, low to the ground, moves well and accelerates into contact, big thighs...

not that the steelers need a RB, but in 2010 this RB is available. unless he comes out his junior year. unfortunately the steelers, IMO, wasted their pick on a scatback named mendenhall. i would rather have a RB who attacks the opposition, not one who runs away(loose term) from possible contact and is brought down on the first hit.



shonn greene 5' 11" 235lbs

projected as a 3rd or 4th rounder if he comes out early(2009)

I have seen every Iowa game. Green is IMO the best RB in the Big 10. I believe he has had a 100 yards in every game this year. If we could get him with the 3rd round pick I would take him and see what we could get for Mendenhall.

Beleive me, by the 4th quarter no body on the defence really wants to tackle this guy.

It's a little early to give up on Mendenhall . . . and he's no "scat-back."

How about John Clay from Wisconsin in 2010?? He will be a redshirt sophmore and eligible, but likely will stay another year or 2.

Default Re: RB

i'd bet the farm the steeler's WON'T be looking at RB's in the first 5 picks.... does anyone see a FS, being targeted early? clarks contract is up in 09 (?) 31 yrs old......anthony smith has shown 0 improvement...... i think FS should be addressed in the top 3 picks.

don't be surprised if the steelers pick a WR, TE or RB in the first round. i doubt they will address the O-line and D-line until the second day.

i noticed you wouldn't reply with your opinion/thoughts on mendenhall. oh that's right, you are a lemming, incapable of having independent thoughts.
