Really good selection I think. Good value in the sixth round. One of my favorite picks this year.

i am suprised dwyer lasted so long. having seen dwyer play he is a good inside runner, not supper fast bbut real quick. in the spread at gt he was so good at reading the defense. i thought he would have been drafted much earlier. the predraft leak of him failing a drug test was due to his league approved use of an ADD medicine. i think he will be a real nice addition.

Glide, but does he possess suddenness.

Can't believe Dwyer fell this far in the draft. Steelers jumped on him right away. It's obvious what the Steelers want to do, huge opportunity with Mendenhall and a force like Dwyer in the backfield. Lovin this draft, one of the best in recent years on paper and needs.

I was hoping for either him or Legarrett Blount. Glad we picked up a power back at any rate.
