Default up and coming steelers

This years draft class has been injury plagued. i think guys like ryan mundy at safety will be great next year. Clark is gettin older but still playin well. Anthony Smith is a bust. Humpal if he gets bigger can move to d-line and spell with arron smith to put some pressure on qbs. mendenhall will also come back strong..


what evry 1 else think?

Your stating statements not facts. I could say that when Ben is healthy next year he'll throw for 5000 yards.

sweed looks like a complete bust so far.

i'm also concerned that mendenhall is not hanging out at heinz field at all; at least show up once in awhile while you rehab!

Anthony Smith might have attitude issues but hes not a bust. He's one of the leagues most vicious hitters......he just seems to get caught up in his own act.

I think Anthony Smith can be developed, but that is a coaching issue

Mendenhall has promise but seems to have a big head

Sweed is a first year receiver with the dropsees...we'll see next year.

I think maybe Stapleton could be the best up and comer...especially with the way he has played coming in for Simmons.

I saw Mendenhall next to Parker during the Chargers game.
