Jarvis is very impressive with his size/speed ratio and that is what our defense needs with the loss of Porter

Several mocks had the Steelers taking him.

Mocks prior to the draft had us either stuck on Penn State standout Paul Posluszny or Jarvis Moss for our inevitable switch to the 4-3 under Mike Tomlin.

I was one that wanted Revis, Carricker or trade down and pick Grubbs.

I dont know that Maybin compares to Freeney or Ware. Those guys are stronger and can play strong against the run. I think he kind of reminds me of Kameron Wimbley at around 250 lbs and is more of a rush specialist that is a bit of a liability against the run.

I don't think Maybin is going to be a superstar, but I think he will be a solid player. Especially if he finds an alternate way to rush the passer than just a plain speed rush.

That's Wimbley's biggest problem, all he can do is a speed rush. He hasn't developed anything else, and I don't think the Browns moving him around will help one bit.
