I understand that, my main point was that normally college basketball players that have not played football since high school do not make great football players no matter the height or weight. I was merely using him as an example. Once again, I wouldn't mind the Steelers bringing him in for a look but I don't see him making this or any other NFL team.

Sounds like much ado about nothing, but yeah, sure, bring him in. As legendary scout Ernie Campadino said, "if you stink, it'll only cost us a train ticket."

A gigantic, athletic guy is never bad to consider, but remember, the Vikings went after Brock Lesnar after he hadn't played football since high school, and he was without question the most lost-looking player I've ever seen. He had no business being on a football field. 'Course, he was going against Will Shields of Kansas City. Needless to say, Shields handed him his ass on five straight plays. Quite funny, actually....

Cool, the thing with Troutman, which I think was kinda dumb, was he did not want to try football, he was more content playing hoops over in Europe .... which finally is starting to make more money, but I do think he woulda made an NFL team.

Our 3rd TE is up in the air, not sure the Steelers are not sold on Kranchek just yet and he is expendable. With the good core of TE's in this years draft.... we could still draft a big guy in later rounds.

Matt Kranchick is on the Giants roster. The Steelers have Miller signed, Tuman re-signed and they will need at least two more in camp. I would love to see someone like Pope from Georgia slide in the draft. The kid is a road grater and Miller is an athletic pass catcher. Would be a really nice combo for years to come
