Did the Pittsburgh Steelers get a steal in Anthony Chickillo?

The Pittsburgh Steelers knew they had a pass-rushing problem when they set a 25-year franchise low in sacks with 33. That issue was exacerbated when Jason Worilds, tied for the team lead with 7.5 sacks, retired. The Steelers arguably got a first-round steal when Alvin Dupree fell to them at 22. Could sixth-round pick Anthony Chickillo turn out to be a steal too? Early accounts...

Anthony Chickillo is feeling pretty good these days

Chickillo Brings His “Motor” to the Steelers

In the first five plays I watched of new Steelers’ defender Anthony Chickillo, I saw him line up in four different spots along the front line of the Miami Hurricanes’ defense.

While that may be the case, I can flat out tell you that it won’t matter where Chickillo lines up for...

Run, Phillip, Run! (like the wind); Chickillo lean & mean; Denzel improves 40 (as did Duke), then pulls hammy

 You've got to appreciate former Hurricanes wide receiver Phillip Dorsett.  Instead of ducking from running the 40-yard dash at UM Pro Timing Day on Wednesday after winning $100,000 from Adidas for his blazing 4.33-second time at the NFL Combine (second-best time in among athletes at Indianapolis), he went full speed ahead and ran twice at Greentree Field.   With representatives...
