The last couple of drafts when did you ever see a player like Vontaze that would make you think that the Steelers could regret if they pass on that certain player??? no one comes to mind....cause im just saying the Steelers COULD regret not drafting Vontaze if he is there cause he could be the next Ray Lewis and idk about you but i would love a Ray Lewis on the Steelers defence.

i would pass on him unless we could get him in the 2nd round. if he is getting benched in college because of all his personal fouls then there is probably a problem which wont get better once he's rich

Agreed 100%. If he drops he is the best on the board at that spot

We were guaranteed by all sorts of geniuses that we were going to regret passing on any of the several cornerbacks who were available. They were all wrong. All of the corners look like reaches right now.

exactly. i remember everyone here thinking we had to have Kyle Wilson or Brandon Wilson 2 years ago. most members would get mad if someone said the Steelers would pass on them. they thought both those corners would come in and upgrade or secondary.

years later and both corners ride the bench. i dont see either ever starting in the NFL

The buzz around Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict unfortunately continues to be negative. I was told at the Senior Bowl when he showed up for combine training in January, Burfict looked soft and out of shape. Latest word has him completing less than 15 reps on the bench recently and Burfict has been slowed by a leg (hamstring) issue. All that we’ve talked with say the biggest issue surrounding the often times dominant linebacker is work ethic.

3rd round, maybe.
To paraphrase an Alonzo Spellman commment...."skills of a worldbeater, mind of an eggbeater".

I almost marked this as spam and deleted it because I thought "Vontaze" was an advertisement for some sort of medicine.

I need to go to sleep.

Vontaze has thrown an opponent's shoe on the field, refused to come out of games, headbutted players after the whistle, punched players after the whistle, choked players after the whistle, put together a string of 15 yard penalties Kemoeatu could only dream of and gotten blocked by every offensive lineman he went up against. He will be out of the league in three years or less. I wouldn't take him if he was an UDFA.
