Apparently he is a "future NFL star."

Sounds like he is a good find.

his 40 time is prolly similar to troy's. he seems like a smart kid, i'd say he's worth giving a tryout

if anyone is smart enough to learn lebeau's system quickly he's it.

You mean similar to Hines Ward?? It's not even close between him and Troy. Polamalu can close a distance better than anyone on our team and most people in the league. He ran a 4.33 when he was being scouted. Rolle came out of Florida running a 4.68. That's incredibly slow.

I read 4.54 somewhere, and that's about the norm for most db's out of college. for a safety, speed isn't as crucial as being able to diagnose a play.

maybe the 4.54 was his GPA instead of his 40 time

The only good thing this kid has done is be a Rhodes Scholar, but he shows heart on the field and a willingness to be better. He will be a project player through training camp, but i highly doubt he will actually make the team. The Steelers are just signing guys for the shit of it right now
