I like them both. There is still room on the Frank "The Tank" bandwagon for you non-believers. This dude is bigger, harder to tackle, and faster than some of the RB's drafted much higher.


Oh, and "goodbye" Carey Davis! Don't let the door hit ya, where the good Lord split ya!

Isnt it a bad thing when your 2 5ths round picks are going to be on the team and 2 out of 3 of the 3rds wont.

I agree with this post......Rashard Mendenhall is still the future at RB for the Steelers.....But Summers will give a goal line back and I do see him lining up some at FB......Plus Parker is a FA after this season or 2010......So RB was some what of a need and I have no problem with the Steelers taking a chance in the 5th round with Frank the Tank......

Joe Burnett gives us another corner and guy that can return kicks just like Mike Wallace.......Our return units were seriously upgraded in this draft.....

Take that one step further. Pretty bad when the fans are most excited about your 5th round picks. I do however like Keenan Lewis alot and think in time Wallace will be a solid player. Wallace is very comparable physically to Nate Washington.

Burnett is the new generation Deshea Townsend ... Looks and plays just like him except somewhat faster.

I like Burnett. Terrific ball skills. The could have signed Summers after the draft, plus there was just oh so much more talented backs left when they took him. Have fun on the practice squad.

Something nice about Summers is he can replace Russell and Davis. That could free up a roster spot.

What two third round picks won't make this team?...lol Urbik will make the team....He is at least an upgrade at RG....I like Stapleton but I prefer him to come off the bench as a backup center or guard....Mike Wallace will make the team since another WR is a need and he can return kicks.......Lewis won't be cut either......Mike Tomlin will do wonders for him....

we already had that and more with gay

this draft is just plain awful from top to bottom....please just spare me and forfeit the remaining picks, your commiting to failure as it is, should just stay put rather than taking steps backwards.

cornelius lewis remains my only hope for happiness

William Gay is a fine player and should start this year........We need depth though.......Lewis and Burnett give us that....Plus Burnett can return kicks.....

Summers' 4.55 time in the 40 was better than the times posted by 16 of the 23 backs who performed in Indianapolis. It should be noted, too, that those at the Combine had the luxury of running the event's signature test indoors, as opposed to the windy conditions Summers ran in Thursday. His 34.5-inch vertical topped only three of the Combine participants. He hoisted 225 pounds 30 times, hardly struggling in the process. Of the 23 backs to lift in Indy, the highest total number of reps was 29.

That was my point as well. Not only does he have a low center of gravity, is as tough as nails, but he has got some wheeles as well. I agree with Darnik, he could replace Davis as a fullback and Russell as our short yardage back. I think the dude is a hammer and he will also be a guy on special teams that flat out kills people! :yesnod:

Ok but really any pick at this point has a very good chance of not panning out.....The Steelers have to think long term here as well and Frank Summers does have a shot make the team as the goal line back and maybe play some FB....Plus down the road might be the backup to Mendenhall...Parker is a FA soon.....If he doesn't pan out then it was only a 5th round pick....lol

Above all I think he has great agility and that's why the Steelers believe he is special.

I also like the Frank The Tank pick. Just maybe now we can get rid of Carey Davis.
