The optimism following the 2013 NFL Draft is always electric.

The reality is, however, nobody knows how these players will turn out, and whether or not they...
In a pre-taped segment that aired on ESPN before the NFL draft, comedian Frank Caliendo broke out his impression of NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr., and he absolutely nailed it.
Fellow NFL draft analyst Todd McShay played the straight man as Caliendo takes Kiper's personality and expands it to topics way outside the NFL world. Brilliantly funny.

veteran backup Charlie Batch no longer has a roster spot with the team, but he

that Jones could be the Steelers’ heir apparent behind starting quarterback Ben
There is no question the Pittsburgh Steelers needed to accomplish something whether through the late rounds of the NFL Draft or in signing undrafted free agent players. That ‘something’ was to find a younger back-up quarterback for Ben Roethlisberger as Byron Leftwich is out of the picture and with Charlie Batch being somewhere near the age of gaining his AARP card.
Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones is the Pittsburgh Steelers first linebacker selected in the first round since Lawrence Timmons in 2007 and the first outside linebacker they have picked since Huey Richardson in 1991, one of the teams biggest busts ever.
