But the Second has actually brought us many of our better players… Lamarr Woodley, ARE, Kendrell Bell, Marvel Smith, Kordell Stewart, Brentson Buckner, Chad Brown, Levon Kirkland, Carnell Lake, Dermontti Dawson, Delton Hall, Sidney Thornton, Ray Pinney, Jack Lambert, Gordon Gravelle, Jack Ham, and Ron Shanklin.

And if you recall, Lambert was taken as a back up OLB and STs player.
Kordell was horrible

I was happy Mayock had such high thoughts of him as well. He said we Steelers fans would love him. I like the pick.

Kid looks good on the youtube highlight video.

Check out the block at around 3:30, he really throws his body around.

Kordell had all the talent in the world. He just wasn't a particularly good NFL QB. As many have said, if he played WR, he'd be in the HoF.

The turning point for him was the 97 AFCCG. He wasn't the same after that. Although he made the Pro Bowl in 2001 and was team MVP.

So, no, he wasn't horrible. His problem was that the Rooneys coined Heinz Field the "House Kordell built", and the kid simply wasn't up to that kind of pressure.

-Suspended last two games of the 2008 season for multiple rule team violations.
-2005 honorable mention Freshman All-American at both wide receiver and kick returner by The Sporting News
-Sociology major at SMU
-Chose SMU over Kansas, Houston, Baylor and TCU
-Four-sport letterman - football, baseball, basketball, and track in high school
I guess character wasn't a concern when the steelers made this selection

I actually thought the end of 2000 and to the 2001 AFC Championship game was his best QB play. I thought he recovered but the 2001 AFC championship game was the end.


Although it should be noted we lost that game more on special teams than the play of Kordell(two TD's given up).. The Pats couldn't move the ball in that game except for the one TD drive

Seems every year we get high grades by talking heads.

I just want our mid to late rounders to pan out for a change. We NEED to start hitting on these picks so when re-build time comes it's a smoother transition for us imo.

the dude was drafted by Pittsburgh... I wouldn't call him the model of an unbiased person when it comes to his Steelers.
