oh, and theres only one person on the entire planet that thinks the steelers LB corps is a weakness.
that would be me. here is why:

no depth, no impact players on the inside. Age with harrison is a concern and we shown last year when someone outside goes down we dont have anyone who can come in and so anything.

That is the issue with some Steeler fans, think too much with your heart than your head.

I'll agree with the lack of depth. Missing on guys like Bruce Davis and Thad Gibson cost some depth.

Timmons, Woodley, Harrison are solid. I think Chris Carter has better potential than Worilds, but at the worst, Worilds might be as good as Haggans was here.

Sylvester is a special teamer and Foote another veteran on the decline, but if you draft 1 solid ILB and both Worilds and Carter improve this season.....its right back to where the usual standard is.

Put it this way. The LB corps is 3 times the unit that the O Line is. That has been neglected much worse.

maybe a comp pick, he bombed the interviews and didn't even run a 5 second 40. chance he goes undrafted imo

though yeah most realistically 5th-7th round. someone will pick him up as a project. definitely not us though, our scouting team usually leans more toward high character players, unless it's someone we definitely can't pass up on (like santonio holmes)

Does anyone else remember Timmons running back an INT for 90 yards a couple years back? How about the turnovers he forces? Timmons may not be the most electric player to watch but he is certainly as solid as they come.

But he played like he ran a 4.4. Undisciplined, but the best talents generally are in college because the coaches let them do what they want. Watch any Burflict highlight and you'll see that 40 time doesn't matter.

I think we have some pretty solid LB's with potention. Sylvester has shown some serious chops when he's had the opportunity. I would think Timmons would move into Farriors spot with Sylvester and Foote sharing Timmons current position.

You said it right there.....watch any HILIGHT of Burfict.

Those are hilights of NCAA games. In the NFL, everybody was on scholarship and is significantly faster, stronger, more refined in his technique. He will not succeed unless he committs to improving and listening to coaching.

Burfict couldnt even take his pre-combine training seriously and threw his coaches under the bus at the combine. Steelers rarely take guys like that and I doubt he is even on their board.
