Found May 03, 2013 on Steelers Depot:
The first day of rookie camp for the Pittsburgh Steelers has come and gone and several members of the media are now weighing in with their thoughts after observing the Friday practice. Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that first-round draft pick Jarvis Jones appeared to him to be undersized and that has been one of my own concerns all along about the former Georgia linebacker. "First-round pick Jarvis Jones looked tremendously undersized especially compared to Woodley and Jason Worilds," writes Kaboly. "Now, his speed, that’s just fine. Jones showed that off a couple Read more [...]

Steelers reportedly expected to sign Steve Breaston

ESPN’s John Clayton mentioned on Thursday’s NFL Live that the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to sign free agent wide receiver Steve Breaston within the next couple of weeks. The Steelers will likely sign Breaston to a veteran minimum deal.  My guess is that it will be a one-year contract. While Breaston isn’t Mike Wallace, he’s a solid weapon that can help out Pittsburgh’s...

Not So Fast With Steelers Rookie WR Reggie Dunn – One Trick Ute

We all love speed, and ever since the 2013 NFL draft concluded, people can't stop talking about Utah wide receiver Reggie Dunn, who was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent late Saturday. Dunn, who reportedly ran a 4.OHCRAP during his March pro day, had more 100-yard kick return touchdowns in his college career (5) than any player in NCAA history. He...

Steelers Rookie RB Le’Veon Bell “Definitely” Thinks He Has A Chance To Be The Opening Day Starter

Pittsburgh Steelers second-round draft pick Le'Veon Bell talked to the media on Friday after his first day of rookie camp and answered questions about how his day went, the offense the Steelers plan to run with him in the backfield and the likelihood of him being the Week 1 starter. As far as how his first day of practice in a Steelers jersey went, Bell, who was the second...

Samford Defensive Coordinator Bill D’Ottavio Says Rookie Steelers DE Nick Williams Has Great Upside

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Samford defensive tackle Nick Williams in the seventh and final round of the 2013 NFL draft with hopes of eventually turning him into a 3-4 defensive end. Samford defensive coordinator Bill D'Ottavio was a guest of David Todd's this past week on ESPN 970 radio and was asked to talk about his former player. D'Ottavio was first asked to...

Steelers Trading to Land Shamarko Thomas May Say Just as Much About Markus Wheaton

It’s closing in on a week since the Pittsburgh Steelers traded a third round pick to gain an extra fourth round pick that was used to select Syracuse safety Shamarko Thomas. Gerry Dulac’s newest column for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Unusual move lands a hard-hitting safety for the Steelers) discusses how the Steelers traded away a future third round pick to bring Thomas to...

A Look At The Quarterbacks Drafted From Round Four And Later Since 1993

Ever since the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL draft, the speculation has been running rampant as to what it means for starter Ben Roethlisberger. If you look back through the history of the draft, you can clearly see why Roethlisberger shouldn't be losing any sleep. Dating back to the 1993 NFL draft, there...

2013 A Make-or-Break Season for Steelers Middle Linebacker Group

There are a lot of question marks facing the Pittsburgh Steelers at middle linebacker. In fact, outside of Lawrence Timmons it may be the most concerning position on the Steelers defense moving forward. Right now the starter alongside Timmons is the soon to be 33 year old Larry Foote. Foote played well last year, but he is a liability in coverage and he isn’t getting any younger...

Mike Tomlin believes Sean Spence will play again

We recently reported that it might take a miracle for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Sean Spence to ever play football again. Head coach Mike Tomlin is more optimistic then most people.  He believes Spence will play again after suffering a serious knee injury in 2012 that caused nerve damage. “I did hear the opinion regarding Spence,” Tomlin said, according to the Steelers,...

Steelers Interest in WR Steve Breaston Doesn’t Make Much Sense At This Point

Back in February the Pittsburgh Steelers met with free agent wide receiver Steve Breaston’s agent at the NFL Scouting Combine. Adding a veteran receiver like Breaston, who is familiar with Todd Haley’s offense, made sense at the time, but now it doesn’t make quite as much sense. Heading into the off-season the Steelers number one receiver from 2012, Mike Wallace, was to be...

Pittsburgh Steelers Star Linebacker LaMarr Woodley Should be Back on Track in 2013

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley has caught a lot of flack this off-season after his second straight season that was plagued by injuries. After the season Woodley was called out by an anonymous teammate, or coach, for being out of shape and “terrible” during the 2012 season. All of this negativity around Woodley has created some incorrect opinions and...

Lewis: Thoughts on the Steelers Roster Following the 2013 NFL Draft

By Jeremiah Lewis As I discussed last time (read Jeremiah’s last post here), the Steelers certainly had their share of needs.  The short list being running back, wide receiver, safety and linebacker.  Assuming the offensive line can stay healthy, it is finally possible to say that we are not only talented but are solid with the potential to keep Ben upright and well protected...

Craig: Steelers Not Likely to Carry Special Teams Ace, and do We Really Want Them To?

By Jeff Craig: Jeff wrote this post in response to my post yesterday of: Would the Steelers be Willing to Carry a Special Teams Ace Next Season? I tend to agree with the opinion Jeff stats in this post, unless of course Reggie Dunn proves to be the next Devin Hester, but let us know what you think. Most of the information I have read about Reggie Dunn makes me believe him ideal...

Report: Steelers Expected To Sign WR Steve Breaston Within Next Couple Of Weeks

John Clayton of ESPN mentioned on Thursday’s episode of NFL Live that the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to sign free agent wide receiver Steve Breaston within the next couple of weeks. The Steelers brought Breaston in for a visit several weeks ago following his release from the Kansas City Chiefs, but chose not to sign him at the time. There were reports at that time that...

If Steelers’ 2013 Draft Is Any Good, We’ll Know in 2013

There are plenty of reasons to be excited about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 draft. Jarvis Jones could make opposing quarterbacks fear the Steelers again. Le’Veon Bell could be the Steelers’ first iconic running back since Jerome Bettis. Markus Wheaton could be Mike Wallace with a brain. Shamarko Thomas could fly all over the field and make plays. That’s a lot of “could”s...
