David has yet to fill out a bio.
Your post on the Edelman catch says he was battling two defenders but there were actually three there (yes, one was facing the wrong way but his feet were there for Edelman to contend with).
My Analysis for Pittsburg Steelers: The outside linebacker spot has become a must for the Steelers. Harrison has not made up his mind if he is going to stick around for another run after 14 years, but management may decide for him at the end of this season. Bud Depree and Jarvis Jones are great assets on the outside but have been injury prone their first few years. Anthony Chickillo has shown signs of potential and has an uncanny ability of reading the offense better than most, but has not had enough opportunities to showcase his skills. Also Pittsburgh needs to find RB depth behind Le'Veon Bell. Bell is going to get “PAID”, for sure, for his rookie contract expires at the end of this season and with the Steelers having more extra padding for the salary cap this year it should be a no brainer. DeAngelo Williams is one of the best back ups in the NFL, but his time in the NFL is closing. Fitzgerald Toussaint may have good hands, but his down-hill running skills are more of a power runner, than finesse. The Steelers got him for a steal from the Ravens, but it has not panned out which they thought. As for TE the Steelers have a list of tall candidates with Ladarius Green at 6-6 and Jesse James 6-7 and have 3 more in the wings. But with the Steelers play calling for slants across the middle and quick releases this position get pounded and they can not keep a healthy TE on the field. Green had a phenomenal wk 13 and showed why we grabbed him from San Diego, but the Steelers need someone consistent as a playmaker and healthy to keep on the active roster.
My Draft Candidates Mock 1.1
OLB: Tim Williams—Alabama: a pass rush specialist with explosiveness off of end
Jordan Willis-- Kansas State= Best Large Pass Rusher in the Big 12
RB: As most of the candidates are Jr this year some have declared for NFL
Jeremy McNichols --- Boise State = vision, burst, power and toughness
D’Onta Foreman --- Texas= 2,000-yard work horse rusher
QB: If he is still there 3rd round, I would grab:
Brad Kaaya: Strong understanding of downfield projection and has mobility in pocket
CB: Gareon Conley – Ohio State=speed, movement skills and toughness
Cameron Sutton - TN =confident, fluid athlete at his best in man-to-man coverage
FS: Jordan Sterns – Oklahoma State = impact player 3 yrs w/ over 100 tackles
Johnathan Ford --- Auburn= fluid, aggressive athlete w/greater awareness of the ball
OG: Zach Banner (6-8,360lbs )- Southern California: MONSTER w/aggressive speed
Danny Isidora Miami ( FLA) : thick frame, natural power and surprising mobility
