I'll admit my only viewings of him here the 20 seconds of him walking to the line almost completely upright and those silly leaps but Dwyer is a beast. I don't see Bell moving the line 3 yards ever if those highlights are his best plays.

Reminds me of DavidJohnson and Dixon but as a RB, just more suck.


Naw, he's got plenty of power and can break tackles. At least he better be able to in the NFL because he seriously lacks speed. Probably the one main thing he has on dwyer is endurance.


Dwyer can gain endurance by working out to be a #1 back now instead of being one unknowingly. That's one thing anyone can improve with simple hard work.

Dwyer's been in the league for 3 years. If he isn't shape now where he can carry the ball more than 3 times per drive, what makes you think all of a sudden he's going to work out to gain the endurance he needs? Alternatively, if you're suggesting that he wasn't work as hard because he was "only" a backup, and had he known he would have been the starter without it happening "unknowkingly" then that is even worse.

Bell is a mean tough runner who doesn't come off the field panting like a dog on a 90 degree day. I like the pick personally. Saw him play a few times and was always impressed.

Good God, Josh Victorian. I blocked the Victorian experience from the end of 2012 out of my memory, I completely forgot about that. He has to be one of, if not the worst player who got meaningful PT in recent Steeler history (even if due to injury).

Pittsburgh has so many phenomenal locally owned pizza and hoagie joints, and the fact that Primanti's is the one that gets the press for a stupid gimmick when the sandwich is garbage really grinds my gears.

One thing that worries me about Jones, is that Ben strikes me as a Tom Barrasso type who will be less than welcoming to someone coming in at his position like Jones. Even if he was only in the 4th round (so kind of a John Elway/Tommy Maddox lite scenario, given Tommy Gun went in the 1st). Hopefully the familial connection will help him not be a bag about it.

I like the last couple rounds and the undrafted FAs when guys come from colleges you never knew existed. For example Nate Washington who the Steelers signed out of Tiffin.

I can't participate in this because I'm going to get too emotional and get banned. I will leave you with one note:

Fiori's is the worst pizza I have ever had in my life. Try cooking it next time chief.

/s/ People from the south hills are morons.

My boy from Greentree forced me to go there on multiple occasions and it was uniformly terrible every time.

What was the projection on this CB from Illinois? I heard McShay say he views him as a #4 CB.

Woah... okay dude, put the baseball bat away.

Anyways, while you are so adamant about this, where are the pizza places you eat then? Let's be positive here and give us your favorites. I go all over Pittsburgh so maybe i have eaten at one or two.

Well, it is his first trip to Pittsburgh, I think. As long as he doesn't tweet any pictures of him making it rain at a strip club I'm happy to see him so excited.
