Weird. I agree that Berry is slightly overrated, and the Ed Reed comparisons are definitely WAY premature. But i think he'll be a solid pro. I just never saw it as the pressing need for the Steelers with both Troy and Clark in the fold.

But I don't get his gripe with Coleman...of COURSE he's an overachiever! He's a way undersized kid playing safety in a perennial top 5 college program. it's the very things he's knocking which make me think HE'LL also have a nice career in the NFL, even if his learning curve is a bit steeper.

Lande was a scout for the Browns, by the by, so draft "street cred" is going to be an issue with this dude...

Wow....I dont mean to be tooooo critical, but that article is a joke!!!


NOONE is more overrated then Jason Pierre-Paul. for him to not be mentioned is very weird!!! Three different school in three years due to academics...two of them at a junior college. Only played ball for a legit college for one year...and only started 7 games.

This guy has BUST written all over him!!!!!

Here are some writeups on this dude!!!

Quote:
We're told that multiple teams have concerns regarding Pierre-Paul based on his interviews, which have featured at times nonsensical answers to fairly basic questions.

Quote:
...others not only disliked Pierre-Paul's athletic ability, they acknowledged they would not draft him in the first two rounds the first four rounds, for two of them and feared he would be a bust.

"He won't be ready," one GM said. "He will be outmanned. He will be lost. He has no football experience and only (13) games of football against a lower level of Division I football (competition). It's not like he lined up against Alabama and Georgia. He is not a pass rusher. He is late off the ball. He does not transition easily. I don't like tall, thin-legged guys that cannot convert speed into power."

Every time I see him on TV I just wonder why he's gonna be drafted in the first round. Because he can do back flips?

If you look down at the bottom there was a link to a second round mock that had Earl Thomas going in the second and a bunch of other guys. That guy has to be in Special ED
