    Shamarko Thomas

    Is anyone else as excited to see this kid play as I am? He gives me something to look forward to this preseason.

    Probably not the smartest thing to say but I'm sure the coaches will get to him. If they don't, idgaf. I think this kid is going to be a bullet. Shamarknado.

    Hes not wrong, idk how much we can expect him to play as a rookie but he is a missile. Him running the 40 yard dash and face planting at the end sums up how hard he goes

    Oh yeah, I agree I do not think he's going to sniff the field that much on defense during the season but I am excited for him in the preseason and future.

    With him and Clark we have two missiles on the same team. I like it!

    Well, let's not be too hasty in saying he won't see much time because the way Troy gets hurt, you never know. But I'd sure like to see a healthy dose of him to help keep Troy fresh down the stretch.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I actually think he'll see some decent playing time. He's too talented. He's got such a large skill set. I honestly see him coming in on some nickel and dime looks. Get Foote out on some passing downs, use Troy as sort of a hybrid MLB as they've done in the past and let Shamarko play safety or cover the slot.

    I honestly feel like in a few years Shamarko is gonna be one of those picks that people look back on and say, "How the hell did slip to the 4th round?" I honestly believe that. He's a great kid, no off the field garbage, crazy talented, about as hard a worker as you're ever gonna see, and he has the desire and motivation to be great. As long as he stays healthy I really do believe he'll be a top 5 type safety in this league.

    Usually I'd be a little more cautious about getting excited over a 4th round pick, but he really isn't your typical mid round pick. Can't wait to see him on the field.

    Like that idea. Turning Troy loose on Weeden, Flacco and Dalton. Love to see Flacco's eyes widen seeing Troy coming down in the box on him. LOL

    All 5'9" of him... Or he would have been a first rounder.

    He is already one of my favorite players on the team and he hasn't played a down yet....lol But I agree with you and a few years when looking back at the 2013 draft and Shamarko was a steal in the 4th round....

    shamarko 5-9....4th rounder

    elam 5-10....first rounder

    cant nitpick over a few inches, the tape doesnt lie. I was a huge elam fan, but he is only slightly ranked about shamarko as far as ranking safeties goes to me, not much separates those two besides program
