Default Jonathan Dwyer

I don't think this is from his combine workout.

Either the confidential positive drug test was something more than prescription drugs as they claimed...or whatever disease he has is BAD.

After reading more, I think Dwyer has ADD (ADHD). They said he has been treated since 5th grade and the med gives a positive amphetamine test. Simple...ADD.

Maybe teams were worried about whether he will be able to focus on plays.

Me too but I was thinking that at least the media won't go crazy with Dwyer. Hey.. I just heard his name in the background. I have to check the team.

Not to nitpick you but ADD and ADHD are different. I wouldn't worry about it. I have ADHD and I've made the Dean's List. Glad he fell to us since I hear he's a good talent.

People with ADHD can and usually are overachievers if their focus is in the right place. Nothing to worry about as long as we can keep his head in the books/gametape.

Honestly, this is the first pick that I absolutely love. Its a value pick, it makes sense. Don't get me wrong, I like Maurkice Pouncey as well, but I though we could have gotten him a little later, trade back into the 20's and pick up a 3rd or a 4th. But this guy is impressive. In his highlight film, he runs away from everyone. Seriously, I think hes faster than Mendenhall. He also runs with power.

Check out this highlight reel:

I am a Tar-Heels fan and I am very glad to see Dwyer go . . The guy tore up the ACC and whoever got in his way and he is a great north/south runner that could be the Steelers goalline back they have been looking for.
