This kid is going to help bring Steeler football back. I don't think he will have a long career, as his body is going to take too much wear and tear and he's not the biggest guy, but for a while, he is going to bring the big hits back to Pgh (unless the league makes virtually every big hit illegal, and they might). Between he and Jones, it is the beginning of the return to Pgh bringing back intimidation. I just hope it won't be like a few years ago when Pgh couldn't look at an offensive player without drawing a flag.

Thomas was a nice pick.
