    Exclamation Bridger Buche signs with Steelers

    The roster spot vacated by the now departed Jonathan Scott has been filled. According to Bob Labriola via Twitter, the Steelers signed a new Guard today.

    @BobLabriola: Not as big as the news on DeCastro, but Steelers sign another guard -- rookie free agent Bridger Buche from Eastern Michigan.

    His Twitter: @bbuche76

    Height: 6-3 3/8
    Weight: 305
    Speed: 5.47
    Arm: 32 1/2
    Hand: 90 5/8
    Wingspan: 78
    Birthdate: 01/12/1989
    Hometown: Portland, MI
    Grade: 4.40

    From the National Football Post:

    Buche possesses a sloppy build with a lot of excess weight through his mid-section, and doesn't carry his additional girth real well. He is a limited athlete on the move who struggles to quickly fire out of his stance and get into the second level. He also really lumbers the more space he's asked to play in and struggles to break down as well into contact. He's more of a linear guy once he gets going who is tight in the hips, struggles with body control and lacks the coordination to re-direct and break down in any kind of space. He exhibits an average get-off burst into contact, but isn't overly powerful and, despite running his legs through contact, he has a tough time staying engaged.

    He is limited as a pass blocker. Buche needs to play through contact and has a tendency to get overextended into contact and will lose balance at the point. He doesn't exhibit much range laterally, has a tough time sliding his feet in space through contact and isn't real comfortable when asked to shuffle and slide. He showcases some natural anchor strength and can keep his base down somewhat when trying to anchor, but anytime he's asked to slide laterally he really struggles to stay engaged.

    Impression: A limited, tight hipped athlete with a sloppy frame who doesn't look like an NFL caliber athlete.


    Just another body for training camp right now. That review doesn't lend much to a promising prospect does it...

    Sounds more useful to the team than Wallace. ;-)

    He is J. Scott's replacement which makes him one of my favorite players.

    This has franchise painted all over it.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Fine
    I'm pissed! ... This is the best they could do with that vacancy? ... "You're only as good as your weakest player" ... Small, slow and out-of-shape don't cut it at the Pro level ... WTF?
    It's hip to T-Squared ...
