Weslye Saunders

NT Anthony Gray from Southern Mississippi.

2 DB's actually, but the intriguing singnee is John Clay from Wisconson. He is big (230-250) can run and scored 41 TD's the past 3 years, and was the Big ten offensive player of the year in '09. If he can remain healthy he is a steal.

There is a reason these guys weren't drafted but I like the Steelers picking up who they did.
Especially:

John Clay, HB (Wisconsin) over 3,400 yards in college over 5 ypc
Terrence McCrae, WR (Ohio) tall, good hands on youtube
Armand Robinson, WR (Miami University) 94 rec. last year
Weslye Saunders, TE (South Carolina) 6' 5" 270 a good #2 with good hands
Trevis Turner, OT (Abilene Christian) some say a steal like teamate J'Marcus Webb
Brent Greenwood, S (Iowa) 5 int 61 tackles last year
Mario Harvey, MLB (Marshall) 144 tackles 8.5 sacks last year
Miguel Chavis, DE (Clemson) 6' 5" 288 3-4 End size
Anthony Gray, DT (Southern Miss) A Fireplug at NT, surprised he wasn't drafted


But who the heck is Eric Clanton, OLB (Citadel)

No stats in 2010, 5 total tackles in 2009, No stats in 2008 and 6 total tackles in 2007.

Huh????? Who is this guy?? A possible water boy for us??

All these guys will be camp fodder. Seriously, no sense in digging into the
specifics of UDFA b/c 1 out of 50 will make the team. Most seasons, zero
UDFA will make the team, so why bother to spend the time looking up their
stats, etc? Hell, it's rare that players taken from the 5th rounds up make
the team. Even drafted guys taken late aren't worth looking into.

Although, 2010 was the exception to the rule.

4 18 116 Thaddeus Gibson LB Ohio State - BUST
5 5 20 151 Chris Scott G Tennessee - Made the team
6 5 33 164 Crezdon Butler DB Clemson - Made team, hope to contribute 2011
7 5 35 166 Stevenson Sylvester LB Utah - Nice sleeper
8 6 19 188 Jonathan Dwyer RB Georgia Tech - Love his upside
9 6 26 195 Antonio Brown WR Central Michigan - Seems like great pick

Why is it that we signed two guys who were ruled ineligible in college? Either way...love the Greenwood pickup from Iowa...but really maybe only 1 has the chance to make the roster...and who knows who that is.
