Agree. I follow the Steelers equally as I do the Pens but I don't post that much on them on LGP... in general I think LGP is way too negative towards them (although the Steelers have been proving me wrong early lol)
Also, I think Clowney will be a bust... even if he's not I don't see why we need to target an OLB (in the Steelers scheme)
Why do you think he will be a bust?
Apparently not the best attitude / motivated / high motor guy, don't like that risk for so early... .Pretty much just a pure pass rusher who has 1 sack this year......
I mean, its not like I've studied the tape but I wouldn't be surprised if he slides a little
I don't think he's a pure pass rusher at all. There was some absurd statistic where teams at one point this season ran 70% of their run plays to the opposite side of his field. They've gone so far as giving him snaps at DT to try to get around this. If teams didn't think he could defend the run, they wouldn't do that. The gifs of him blowing up RBs are pretty decent support for his run stopping skills as well.
He's also had the rib injury, which has been a media disaster, and generated this talk. Absent something crazy happening/injury, he's a top 3 pick.
