Default Grimm gets his guy.....

Pittsburgh added Hofstra super sleeper Willie Colon, a favorite of offensive line coach Russ Grimm, and as predicted in Wednesday night's draft chat with Adam Caplan, Colon became a Steeler in the fourth round.
Willie Colon School: Hofstra Pos: G





Ht: 6-3 Wt: 320 40: 5.26 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter at offensive tackle named as both an All-Conference and All-American performer after his senior campaign.

Pos: Wide-bodied blocker who plays with excellent fundamentals. Gets leverage on opponents, stays square and anchors at the point of attack. Effectively uses angles and positioning to seal blocks. Fights hard throughout the action and jolts opponents with good hand punch. Nasty, and gets movement from run blocks.

Neg: Not effective far off the line of scrimmage or in motion. Lacks top height and better off inside at guard.

Analysis: A well-built lineman who has consistently improved, Colon performed well the past two seasons. A likely late-round choice, he could eventually develop into a starter at the next level.

If Russ likes him, then its all good. I trust his judgement about OL prospects 100%

sounds like Russ hand picked him and is who he wanted so with what we have already as starters and with Essex and Kemo and Okobi ... looks like we have a back up for a few years and then starter.

Finally something concrete that we know Grimm has done! Not trying to knock him but other than the Oline what does a ASST HC do?

Grimm was the guy who targetted Essex last year...the Steelers had him very highly ranked, and nobody else did.

Yeah. There seems to be a method to the madness of the last few days. He must be part of a plan. He's not very good in motion but if I recall that is one of the strenghts of the kid from Utah Kemoeatu - mowing players over on the run.

Road Graders at Guard will always have a place on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

I like the fact that we don't always chase the big names and just select guys that quietly develop into stars.

Wouldn't you think some teams would try and emulate what we do? Its amazing people around the league are surprised every year when we have very solid, unsexy but productive drafts.
