Default Pimp Your Guy!

I have already listed numerous guys that I would like to see us get....so in this thread pimp your guy...tell us what why...and what round we should take him in....and for us to discuss what we think of "your guy"...

Not just first day guys...but guys you would like to see in ANY round...So PIMP YOUR GUY!!!!


I will start with someone I have not mentioned yet ....


Desmond Bryant from Harvard had one heck of a pro-day. I wouldnt use an early pick on him but this is the type of player that I would like to get into camp as a late pick or UDFA and see what he can do.

In addition to having ran a 4.92 40 and recorded a 31-inch vertical...he had 35 reps on the bench. You weight lifters will know how impressive that is when you take into consideration that he has 35 inch arms. .

Worth a shot at giving us some depth at DE..at a relatively cheap price.

Name: Desmond Bryant
College: Harvard
Height: 6-5 Weight: 288
Position: DE Pos2: DT
Projected Round: Round7-UDFA

225 Lb. Bench Reps: 35
40 Yrd Dash: 4.92
20 Yrd Dash: 2.82
10 Yrd Dash: 1.67
Vertical Jump: 31
Broad Jump: 09'10"
20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.45
3-Cone Drill: 7.44

Those are nice measurables sure. But what kind of player is he ? Playing at harvard is not the Mecca of competition. Not saying he's bad, but how did he do going up against the best at All-Star games ?


My Favs, well I already pimped Texas DT Roy Miller. The other players I like for various reasons.....


Mike Mickens CB of Cincinnati. A legit 3 inches taller than Alphonso Smith, and unlike Smith, has done well when he faced several Big time WR's in this draft class. As where Smith has been burned against the likes of Darius Heyward-Bey, and Hakeem Nicks last season.



Joel Beil: OT Furman. This kid also played at a small school. But by all accounts in the All-Star games and at Indy, he did exceptionally well in the drills. Is extremely strong and has good arm length. He measured out and drilled as well as Eugene Monroe did, and guess how hign Eugene will be drafted ?


Mike Wallace: WR Ole Miss. This guy is totally under the rader. But is right up there with Heyward-Bey in the speed department. Has a great verticle, and after not playing much as a true freshmen, he has played every season since, and has gotten better, and his Yds per catch were the best in the very tough defensive SEC. Also, he holds most if not all the SEC records as a kick-returner.
If the steelers sign a Vet WR to replace Nate Washington, then this guy would be a great addition in the lower rounds to add depth, and a return specialist.


I'd say, depending on how they rise in the coming weeks during personal workouts,,,

Roy MIller with our 4th rounder

M.Mickens with one of our 3rd rounders

M.Wallace in the 5th round.

Joel Beil with the other 3rd, only cause i really think he's gonna rise on some draft boards.

3rd rounder Darryl Richard DT/Georgia Tech 6'4" 306lbs
Good, solid 2-gap DL guy that doesn't get the recognition he deserves on a good Georgia Tech DL. Makes plays, but more importantly for the Steelers, he fills the running lanes very effectively, something the Steelers will need as Aaron Smith gets older & closer to finishing up. Big, long arms help with disengaging blockers.

3rd rounder Kraig Urbik, G, Wisconsin 6'5" 323 lbs
A road grader who played both RG and RT in college. If not for some knee injuries, he could be rated higher. Likely better than Darnell Stapleton right now.

4th rounder maybe even 5th Joe Burnett, CB, Central Florida 5'11" 184 lbs
Provides depth in the secondary in a role as a nickel or dime back. Returned punts throughout his college career.

might be a 7th rounder or UDFA
Everette Pendescleaux, DE, Northern Iowa 6'6" 305 lbs
A developmental project as a 3-4 DE, much like Aaron Smith was when he came out of Northern Colorado (although Everette won't need to add all the weight that Aaron needed to as a rookie). Has a basketball background, so the big frame should be athletic.

Mark Parson CB, Ohio.
Very Quick & hits hard. Instinctive ball hawk. Very seldom got beat in man to man. Was not invited to the combines. Projected 40 time 4.4, has put up 18 reps in the past.

Louis Vasquez OG, Texas Tech.
Big, 6'5" 335, with 34 3/4" arms. Very strong with 39 reps at the combine. Stock when down some this year because of an early ankle injury, but is just fine now. Big time run blocker, and did not give up a sack at pass happy Texas Tech he junior year.

Already been pimpin Keenan Lewis, CB Oregon St. tall kid with speed and experience playing man coverage all the time at OSU.

Gerald Cadogin- OT Penn St. I hoped to get him in the 6th or later, but I think his stock is rising now.

Antonio Dixon-NT Miami. Injury hampered his senior season, but a load inside that plays with great motor. Could be a guy that spells Hampton during games and is an eventual replacement.

Myron Pryor- NT, Kentucky. consistently mentioned as one of the toughest guys to block in the SEC and shows incredible quickness for a man that large. Maybe a 4th round prospect as a NT.

And I just love to say Frank "the tank" Summers.

Love the Codagin pick....Good fit for the Steelers and high character player (has put out several gospel albums)

Also love both of Texasteel's pick on CB Parsons and OG Louis Vasquez ... Cal Steelers OT Bell pick is another that I have pimped in the past and totally agree that he is worth a shot... (though I think he will be there in the 5th round)

If we could get Codagin or Bell in the 5th I would be tickled. Both could be that surprise picks that starts at LT for us for a long time.
Good call guys.

I also like Dixon. If healthy, could be a hell of a find.
