Brandon Joe is an excellent Fullback...if he's in shape, and gets to compete for a spot, he could make the team. If not, he'll probably be signed to the practice squad. The Steelers always like to keep a backup FB around.

Great blocker and a great kid. Oh did I mention that he runs a 4.5 40 yard dash. That's amazing for a bruising fullback.

Re: Branden Joe

SI.com says 4.84 40 and rates him 3.1 out of a possible 6.0. That rating = practice squad in their rating system.

Bill Cowher attended Ohio State's "pro day" this week at which time Brandon Joe worked out for the scouts. Cowher and the Steelers indicated that Brandon Joe ran a 4.58 40 yd dash. I don't want to dispute the great S.I. but I know what was said about Joe after the latest workout.

I hope SI is wrong. 4.58 is much better - and as said elsewhere, the 40 isn't the best indicator. Seems the Steelers scouting has been able to put their finger on those intangibles that make up great productive players.

The great SI....that's funny.

Couldnt agree more!
