if he is a bruiser he hasn't shown it yet.

why do so many knock moore? since he has been here is has been the most consistent RB when called on. he has shown he can be a clutch player. the steelers need to utilize him more often on 3rd down or passing situations like they did in 08/09.

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.
lol they mention Tebow who even isn't in the game.

Getting outside the tackles is not the M.O. in the NFL. Running east-west is strictly a college ploy that works with wide hashmarks. In the NFL you need to run North-South and at the most, "off tackle".

Mendenhall has the size, speed and quickness to run between the tackles and bounce things outside if he sees it. I think we need a complimentary back that can pick a hole and hit it for a solid gain. Lots of guys like that in this draft like Dixon, Tate, Blount, Bell, Gerhardt, Paschall, etc. Hopefully somebody that fits the bill is there in the 4th.

I wonder how many games were played last season where Tebow's name was mentioned yet his team was not on the field? LOL
Media= Tebow Boner

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.
I like Tate too. Good size. Better speed. Great acceleration. Patient with blocks and bursts through them. Not afraid to ram into a stacked middle. Has the speed to really compliment Mendy on 3rd downs. I'd grab him in the 3rd.

Further, Tate would close the Redman chapter of Steelers history forever.

Gerhart would be a great compliment to Mendy. I think he's a 2010 version of Larry Csonka. I'd love to have him. Just not with either of our first two picks, because I think we need a CB and a G more, and there are other backs (some of whom have been brought up) who would serve the same purpose. Maybe not with quite the pizzaz Gerhart brings, (he does have great vision and quick cuts for a big guy) but it's not like whoever we get to compliment Mendy is gonna get the ball 25 times a game anyway. We're looking for a short yardage guy who minght get 10 touches a game at most.

lol no, not even in '08. That was one hella overrated campaign against a bunch of cupcake defenses (except for the giants, where he had one good run and barely did anything else the rest of the game). Moore isnt an RB that this team should be comfortable with if he becomes the #2 for us on the depth chart.

RB may not have been a problem but word from the top is we're gonna be running the ball much more and we'll need some speed and depth to go with Mendy, more so if Big Ben gets suspended. With DD at QB you can bet we'll be running the ball even more then we wanted, not saying DD is bad but it's just how it'll go. I say we look at someone like McKnight in the 3rd round, he's fast and would be a nice compliment to Mendy.
