Default Marvin Burdette

Apparently the steelers are very interested in this guy. Most likely as an undrafted free agent.

I was researching Burdette ... I'm just not real sold on him , he stacked up a ton of Tackles at that level , but only 14 bench press at 5'10 isn't really good at all ... what role would he play? , a Thumper? I'm not to sure of his stack and shed abaility with only 14 bench press ... Pass coverage , at only 5'10 I don't really want him guarding 6'4+ TEs ... but as an UFA seems interested to bring him in and see what he can do in camp

A ILB I've been doing a lot of research on after the Combine is Brandon Hepburn from Flordia A&M ... he has good speed , Looked smooth in the drills , I can't really find any game film on him though , or even highlights ... but From what I've been reading seems like he is a great person, and the kind of kid I would want on my team

If they want to get a late round linebacker then this is a guy I would want on my team.

He no doubt has talent ... but you mean somebody you want on your IR ... With the injury problems this team has been having I'd rather not take a guy with a serious injury history like him ...

same thing with Marcus Lattimore

I don't feel comfortable enough with our depth at almost every position to be able to take a flyer on players with such a Injury history

Yeah I know he has an injury history. But he is a class act who would give you everything he has. He's a vocal and emotional leader. If he can stay healthy hes more than worth it. He does have injury history but every player takes the chance of being hurt when they step on the field

I hate to be a stickler, but can you provide the link where the Steelers showed interest in him? I just like to be up to date on possible prospects.

A little more on topic, I haven't done a ton of research on this kid so I'll start by doing some tomorrow. I've voiced my opinion on Mauti more than once and ultimately my doubts on him. I don't see him as a top Linebacker prospect in the NFL for a couple of different reasons but his injury history doesn't do him any favors either as cbrunn mentioned.
