hey this is my first thread so im not sure if im doing this all right. i was just wondering what do you all think about the steelers drafting that jordy nelson kid in the 3rd or maybe 4th round? from this highlight video he looks to be pretty good to me. from what i have heard he should be there in the third but idk about the forth.

I'm not UNimpressed.

He seems kind of Hines-ish.

Does he have any kind of injury history?

no thanks

Because he is white? I like him a lot. Solid speed (ran a 4.49 I think, even though I don't care for 40's. He did flat out burn Aqib Talib), good hands, and he knows how to run a route, good size, no charcter concerns.

the more i look into him the more i like. he was a walk on! he is pretty good already but he obviously still has a ton of more room to improve. if we picked him up he would have enough time to develop till ward is too old and retires (not a day i look forward to btw) if we could get him in the 4th i think it could be a steal.

yeah i dont want him because hes white :greenbounce2:

or maybe because hes the kind a WR that is good in college but will be a massive underachiever in the pros, hes "quick" not fast, corners will manhandle him and hes soft. If were taking a 4th or 5th round WR lets go after bowman....who was just as productive in college but has some nfl upside and is an amazing blocker with great body control and ball skills.

but how about this...we dont take any bum WRs and take a solid one in the second or third round...like hawkins, doucet, jackson...someone who could potentially contribute

I like him Train, on this one I'm going to have to disagree with you. He is predicted as going as highas the 2nd to 3rd round range. I do agree that if Doucet is there we should take him in a blink of an eye! But Nelson did run AWAY from Talib like he was running on a flat tire.... To me that's fast, not quick!

it was a busted coverage and talib doesnt exactly have great closing speed as it is...man if careers could be made off of one play do you know how many superstars there would be lol

wow......



Honestly I was being sarcastic. Although my current favorite WRs are Harry Douglas, Pierre Garcon (Mount Union), and Jerome Simpson, I think Nelson wll be a solid pro. Not my top choice in the second day. I do like owman. Only problem is his character. I don't now how far he has dropped with his recent arrest for pot.

Was to the 5th, now probably 6th-7th

From what I saw he looks like an all out effort wideout which puts him in a different class seeing how most wrs are primadanas!!!! I would like this dude as a 3rd rounder! I like doucette a lil more but this dude is impressive in my eyes!!! I think we can count bowman out after this last arrest... ESP. With the offseason we have had with legal problems!

I like what I see. I like his versatility.
