As a University of Illinois fan, I wanna wish Rashard Mendenhall all of the best in the NFL with the Steelers. I have a feeling that he's gonna work out great for you guys

The Steelers were lucky to have Rashard fall to them...I know I'm thrilled with the pick....

I don't think any of us could have thought he'd have fallen to us. I was very happy with the pick too; he's just what the doctor ordered to not only help the running game but also keep the pass rush at bay because now we have a legit 1-2 punch that won't allow teams to focus solely on the pass rush; especially when Willie is out of the game.

Mendenhall was just as much a "gift" to us on draft day as Ben Roth was, if not moreso considering he slid down to the #24 spot.

Thanks, Dan! I have to admit at first I was kinda :scratch: when they announced his name, but now after realizing what how beneficial he can be to the running game, I am thrilled he's a Steeler....can't wait for the season!

Let's just all pray that it pans out to be the dynamic duo/thunder lightning combo were all hoping for.Could go down as a historical draft that brought these 2 backs together..or a waste of talent due to coaching staff not utilizing these guys correctly.To be continued.....................

He's got a lot of pressure on him so we need to hope he stays healthy and is able to carry the load when called upon. He wasn't a 1st round pick for nothing so we know he's got the talent, now we just need to bring it out of him and see what he can do in a game situation.

I agree with ICS ( my God that twice today ), that he was a gift dropping to us in the 1st round. Stockpiling these skill players over the last 4 years or so is really beginning to pay off for us. Ben, Holmes, Heath Miller, Mendenhall, Sweed, we've got so much potential and Rashard is the next piece in the puzzle for us to get back to the SB.
