Default Re: Ten Young Pittsburgh Steelers That Need to Step Up in 2013

They are average, run-of-the-mill players. There is nothing special about them. I like them and they play hard, but we need a back that is more dynamic and can be a threat in the passing game as well.
While I agree with your assessment about not being able to get out side the tackle box, allows the defense to cheat, our problem isn't so much our RBs, as it is the total lack of mobility of our guards. Colon, and Foster, can barely get to the 3-4 gap pulling, let alone get outside the box leading the way.

Our hope is DeCastro has the wheels as we saw in his college tape, will allow us to run wide more often. We'll have to see how Bicknell ZB background works.
