Its all just gathering information on players, I wouldnt look for us to go for taking him if he's projected to go that high. We dont need a Rb in the first round.

Does the team NEED 2 Willie Parker's?
how would it be two willie parker's you said addai is pretty physical and strong guy, so that would be someone better then willie IMO, but anyway i'd rather have humes or lendale white, i like the fat backs that pound you

I agree with the fat backs, at least we would have the fast one and fat one.

We do not need a RB... Willie will be just fine and Duce can play the "closer role" that Bettis filled the last season and a half.

For all of you out there who want to see the Steelers draft a RB... your fate was sealed the moment we resigned Verron.

I don't know about that... last year we had Willie, Duce, Haynes, and Bettis but they still drafted Noah Herron.

Default 3rd string RB at best

I seriously doubt he is a second rounder. The difference between Addai and Willie Parker is that Parker never got to play in college.

Addai played on a generally more dominant LSU team with a number of cupcakes each year on their schedule and his numbers are still very underwhelming...just a practice squad player.

"fate was sealed?????????????????????????????????????????"

Please don't take this personally but that is the most ludacris thought I have heard since Al Gore last opened his mouth. You know...the guy who invented the internet.

And about Duce playing a "closer role"...Do you mean rushing for 368 yards?

I strongly disagree with our fate being sealed with the signing of Haynes.

1) we dont know if Willie will work out ( see Famous Amos )

2) Staley health and obviously he is not future

3) haynes is a 3rd down back / reserve back


for these reason I think we will take a RB and could easily take one in first round ( depending on who is available. We will be taking a RB in this draft, especially with all the draft picks we have would be silly not to take one.

I agree with BB2W and midnightwriter on this one.

Speaking of Noah Herron, from what I saw he looked pretty good in Green Bay this past season.
