    I'm not gonna lie and pretend that I know a lot about Ryan Lee, but comparing measurables is pretty useless, especially when comparing the best guard prospect in years (and as close to a cant miss prospect as you can get) to an undrafted free agent. I'm not saying the man can't pull a James Harrison or an Antonio Gates but I get a little annoyed when Ryan Lee comes up because I've seen so many Steelers fans (on these and other boards) talking him up like he's the second coming of Faneca.

    people get dazzled with the workour numbers for guards but its probably the position those numbers are the most useless. Ramon Foster was a nobody and still is, and i thought legs was a solid backup center coming out of marshall...and he is. Neither guy was a huge surprise, but arent starting quality players and i doubt lee is.

    david decastro would smite you for that comparison

    You never know. I believe decastro is a pro-bowler for years to come, but Ryan Lee would not be the first nor the last surprise. Its a win-win situation either way. If he is better than either of our guards we got really lucky with him. If not, we did not really invest a whole lot in him. Works out perfect either way.

    He is likely a very solid backup if he can get his foot inside the organisation.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Im just stating that Lee could blow out ramon and legs... he was not the #1 rated guard DD is.. He is a number #41 guard...

    Im just looking for a change with legs and ramon... lee is my pick...
