    You do know the Steelers have a 3-4 Defense right?

    This has been a very productive draft, filling much needed positions with quality players. Gotta love it
    There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

    No way ... ... you've got to be kidding me ... right?

    Now we have a committment to a fat-tard 340 lb. burger eater who will never be 2 ounces lighter than his weight today ever again ... and he'll never reach the QB EVER at the NFL level ...

    But I love LeBeau's 3-4 defense ... utter sacrilege if I say otherwise ...

    Great pick!!! Let him play in certain situations this year and he could start at NT in the future!

    I have a feeling that all 3 of our linemen will quickly find themselves at the top of the depth chart at their position.

    Back in those days, the Steelers played a 4-3. In that defense, the defenisve line is tasked with making plays. We play a 3-4, where the defensive line is designed to take up blockers and freeing up the line backers to make the plays. There's a big difference because of the defensive scheme.

    That's fine. Let him clog the middle and occupy blockers. The LB's will take care of the quarterbacks.

    Same was said about Cody last year and he managed. Most pro teams who knows what they are doing can manage players weight pretty fine with nutrition plans and whatnot.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Ta'amu on Decastro

    What do you remember about the game against Stanford and DeCastro?
    When you go against DeCastro, you feel his presence. There are not a lot of guards that can block a nose-guard and you can feel it. With DeCastro, he’s explosive from play one, all the way to the last play. He comes at you, and there are not a lot of guards that stay the same like that throughout the whole game.
