Default Steelers backup FB Ryan Powdrell

Just an FYI about Powdrell who was picked up in the offseason. He was a USC FB that was playing some RB and broke his leg his senior season. I think Frank Summers will replace Gary Russell and am hopeful that Powdrell at 260lbs is now fully healed so we can have a big FB.

Here is the video from 2 seasons ago when he broke his leg.

Thanks Gonzo....I had wondered if the combination of Summers and McHugh would push Davis out the door....Powdrell may actually be the catalyst!!! (The kid in me loves a football player with the word "pow" in his name)

I label him the "Powerdrill"

Yeah, I love that Powdrell is big enough to be an effective blocker and now only hope he is a good enough athlete to fit in Arians system as an occasional RB and receiver. They kid was getting some reps as a tailback at USC, so I hope he becomes an upgrade over Davis.

I still think the RB rotation is gonna be Parker, Mendenhall, Moore and Summers.

Nasty!

Whoever pushes Davis outta camp will be the recipient of me having a signature of him for the duration of the year, unless Davis comes back.

I'm partial to Powldriver, but I like it.

Interesting prospect...maybe a few less goal line stands this year?

That would be great...

But it also depends on what our line does. Let's hope all the talk about them gelling together is true, and they can actually get some good push this year on the line.
