I agree with this post over all of the others!!! Sure, there is a need for a 3rd stringer....but that could be picked up off of the streets. IMO, this was a wasted pick when we could be going for a power RB to be tutored under Duce, who does not have too many seasons left in him (IF he can even stay healthy this entire season).

Now, I do not work in the front office, nor am I privy to the plans Bill and Staff have formulated.........but sometimes you just wanna say "What in the He11 was that?????"

Nice post Haiku_Dirtt! I think you nailed this one perfectly!

True.....and I stated that I was not privy to the FO's plans in my post. Perhaps he will fit into the gadget play role, or convert to a WR like ARE did. Who knows. I am not "ripping on the picks." But...I am STILL entitled to my opinion Hines Alou, and as of right now, I am not completely comfortable with this pick when we have a need for depth at RB. All IMO, of course.

Ok. I'll wait until later today to rip this pick. How that chickens**t throw he has will ever turn into a Carson Palmer canon - okay sorry - into a Brian St. Pierre pistol is something I'd like to see.

I doubt we'll see him on special teams - that's what I don't like.

Meh, we needed someone in that 3rd string QB role (at least it's not Kordell or Maddox), so it should be interesting to see what plans the coaching staff has for him.

Welcome to the Steelers, Omar.

Interesting pick, I like this one too... He should be an above average back-up with a chance to start in this league someday. He should have stayed in college for his senior season and he might have been a first round pick next year.

I'm sure you'd be happier with Tommy Maddox! I've seen Jacobs play and he's a true prospect.

Would be interesting to see them turn him into a threat like ARE-as tall as he is, turn him into a WR who can also throw some gadget plays. Just a thought..

This guy is way underrated, he could be the next mike vick if he is given a few years of good coaching, i have a feeling he may be pissed that he is being labeled a "backup QB" for us for, well, forever. In a few years he may leave to go try to start for a team
