    Jerome Simpson?

    Height: 6-13/4 | Weight: 199 | 40-Time: 4.47 | Coastal Carolina
    Strengths:
    Excellent natural athlete...Nice height and bulk with long arms...Has huge 11-inch hands and he will make the spectacular catch..Outstanding leaping ability...Terrific body control and ball skills...Understands how to get open...Gives good effort as a blocker...Tough and fearless..Hard worker with good intangibles...Nice production.

    Weaknesses:
    Did not play against top competition...Doesn't have elite speed or quickness...Not very explosive and lacks a burst...Doesn't appear to get much separation...Is not real elusive and won't do much damage after the catch...Not a big play threat and won't stretch the field....Has to get stronger...Needs to work on his route running.

    Notes:
    Will follow in the footsteps of his former quarterback Tyler Thigpen to become the second Chanticleer player to ever be drafted...Also participated in track at Coastal Carolina and holds school records for the long jump and the high jump...Four-year starter...Was one of the stars of the East-West Shrine week...At the NFL Scouting Combine he placed among the top ten wideouts in the forty, the vertical jump and the broad jump..Will try and follow in the footsteps of other small school receivers such as Marques Colston & Jacoby Jones...His freakishly long arms and big hands are definite eye-openers...Despite his small school roots he has starting potential.

    I completely forgot about him. I would be over joyed if we got him in the 4th/5th round. Solid posession receiver.

    Agree......I don't care what schools players come from....Just as long as they can play....I never seen Simpson play so I can only go by what I have read abuot him....But I wouldn't the Steelers drafting in the rounds you mentioned....

    That's what it's all about with Steeler WR's..you better be tough, be able to block, and not be afraid to go over the middle and get whacked. He sounds like a great day 2 pick!
