Default Toby Gerhart to Pittsburgh?

The Pittsburgh Steelers should draft Toby Gerhart out of Stanford this year. He is rated as a top 5 back in the 2010 NFL draft. He is 6-1 and 235 pounds. He would be a great complement to Rashard Mendenhall.

*EVEN IF HE IS 2ND ROUND PICK-UP

Would rather have Anthony Dixon of Mississippi State big beast of a RB 6'1" 233 LBS.

He is experienced playing in 48 games and carried the ball 910 times not quite as fast as Gehart but IMO a more powerful runner. Oh yeah a 40 inch vertical for those goaline plays. He also has better hands than Gehart wich is becoming a necessity for backs in todays NFL. I also believe playing in the SEC Dixon has faced much tougher D's than Gehart.

Gerhart ran a 4.53 at the combine and had a terrific career at Stanford. That being said, I still think he'll be a 3-4th round pick and doesn't really fit what we should be looking for. Mendenhall is a bruiser and is great to shoulder the bulk of the carries this year, but if we take a RB in the draft, I want a complement to him. I want a guy that's going to serve as a third-down back with some speed. Moore has been a great third-down back, but I'd like to see us take a flyer on a guy with some quick feet as a change-of-pace back.

I don't believe you can ever have to much muscle in a backfield.

And we have a lot of muscle considering the array of fullbacks we've had on the roster lately. Muscle is something we are not lacking. What we're now lacking as of this offseason is "Fast" Willie Parker. This would be a great time to replace him with another speedy back who can get outside the tackles and make things happen.

i agree... people keep forgetting we added a 240 lb back last year named "the tank" .... i'd like to see him get a crack at carrying the rock before they waste another pick on a guy who arians will try to turn into another fullback.

I love Ben Tate. He ran well at the combine (4.43-40) and if I had to pick a sleeper to be the best pro runningback in the future, I'm going with Tate. He's just one of those guys that continues to impress all the time. I'd be ecstatic if we snagged him in the 3rd or 4th. My only issue is with his receiving skills out of the backfield. He's shown he can be serviceable, but not an elite third-down back thus far. I'll be interested to see how he turns out.
