    My Locks

    QB - Ben, Lefty, Batch
    RB - Mendy, Redman, Dwyer, Rainey, Batch
    TE - Miller, Pope, (Saunders is suspended)
    WR - Wallace, AB, Sanders, Jericho
    OL - Adams, Starks, Colon, Pouncey, Essex, Foster, Decastro, Gilbert, Legs (Hope not)
    DL - Ziggy, Heyward, Keisel, Hampton, Ta'amu, McClendon
    LB - Wood, Harrison, LT, Foote, Sly, Spence, Carter, Johnson
    CB - Ike, Lewis, Brown, Allen
    S - Troy, Clark, Mundy, Allen
    ST - Warren, Kicker, Punter

    Total (so-far) 49

    numbers game now... 4 to fill the 53

    Prolly will fill (my picks are in parenthesis):
    WR - 1 (Maze, Gilreath, Blier) Was kinda rooting for Williams made it, doesnt look like it...
    DB - 1 (D. Comartie-Smith)
    LB - 1 (A. Robinson, Ivy)
    RB/FB - 1 (W. Johnson)


    It'll be interesting if they make any moves once cuts start (i think they might, all-be-it non-groundbreaking) either a small trade or signing a FA. Perhaps to get a RB/FB or LB?

    Position Battles
    TE - Paulson might make the roster while Saunders is suspended. If hes a bright spot like they say... he may push Pope for a roster spot when Saunders is back.

    WR - 5th Spot wide open, after Williams i'm rooting for Maze. Gilreath had a good game the other night, let see if he can do it again.

    K/P - I dont care as long as they improve... Ed Buchette seems to like Shawn Swisshy, he scares me sometimes tho.

    Predictions
    Heyward will be starting by the end of the year...
    Adams and Decastro will be fine (i hope, for Bens sake)...
    Hampton and Mendy wont be the same again...
    Dwyer will be starting before Mendy is ready...

    Excited to Watch
    Rainey
    The "Wallace Watch" OVER
    A younger Steelers Def and a healthier Ben about week 12 when they are getting into a groove for the playoffs!
    Hopefully the best OL we've had in years

    We're not too far off: i like Woods , I think Rainey is a safe bet to make the team and I like J. Johnson, Lee & Robinson so so.

    The two Batches are gone or should be ,the fact that the FO took Hampton off the pup list tells me they don't believe Ta'amu is anywhere colse to being ready and as much as you hate him Redman is a lock.

    Who will be our kickers? I think Kapinos makes were I'm undecided is between Suisham and Hrapmann. I have no faith in Suisham at all.

    Ah Ziggy, missed that... JJ was the #1 QB at Texas ahead of Tannehill, he has big upside. His shoulder surgery knocked him down.

    Who would be #2?

    hes definitely better than batch at this point, they really need to move on from batch. offer him a coaching position or something sure, but he needs to not be on the field.

    the tannehill argument doesnt really mean anything, tannehill was a converted WR
