I expect Mendy to push Moore for the second spot (unless it's handed to him instead - which I don't see happening). I also expect that by 2010 Mendy will be battling Parker for at least a share in the starting lineup.

As for Sweed, I expect him to catch the ball more times than not. I also expect him to be a viable option after Washington leaves via FA. I hope he continues to block like he did in the AFCCG.

Most of the others I expect to hold ST roles and the necessary backup roles should our starters become that depleted.

This would be great. I also would like to see Davis get Andre Fraziers spot and play some special teams, then maybe get some garbage time at OLB.

I also think Mundy makes the active roster, plays special teams and backs up Clark

Tony Hills is my wildcard to play RT if Colon moves inside. I dont think it will happen, but Hills will make great strides and hopefully at least dress for gameday as the backup OT.

just my guess...

mendenhall - if he remains healthy will have around 150-175 carries.

sweed - if washington is re-signed then his stats won't be very good. if washington goes elsewhere then sweed will have around 30-35 catches.

davis - will could be cut. maybe a special teams' player.

hills - will ride the bench. could be cut. most likely because of an injury.

the rest will be special teams, PS or cut.

I see a lot of upside in Davis . The kid had a absolute beast of a senior year at UCLA

47 tackles, 12.5 , 17.5 tackles for loss .

IMO i think butler will do a good job grooming him to a contributor on the defense.

He was a 3RD round pick(#88) which so far has a been producing great LBs for us.

other 3rd rounder( or greater) LBs that have played for us

Joey porter-3rd round pick
Clark Haggans-5th Rounder
Greg LLoyd- 6th rounder
Kevin Greene- 5th Rounder
Larry Foote- 4th rounder
Jason Gildon- 3rd Round Pick # 88 (same exact as Davis)


So ya Im keeping my eye on Davis i think he has potential to crack the starting line up with hard work on special teams and good coaching from Butler


Go Steelers
