Title: James Conner Jersey
Blog Entry: Welcome to week 11 of the college football season. This weeks top 25 match ups  Sean Davis Jersey  , highlighted by Miss. St at Alabama.No. 8 Ohio State at No. 24 Michigan State; noon FOXNo. 18 Mississippi State at No. 1 Alabama; 3:30 CBSNo. 2 Clemson at No. 17 Boston College; 8:00 ABCThere is also a game at Heinz Field on Saturday involving the ACC Coastal Division leading Pitt Panthers and the Hokies of Va. Tech. A win on Saturday doesn’t guarantee anything for Pitt but who, and be honest, thought the Panthers had any shot at ACC championship gamethis year. Many were calling for Narduzzi’s to be fired, but would a championship game save his job. Personally I love the guy and hope he gets a shot a Clemson.

I am starting to think this guy is not just the biggest riser, but also the best player in the draft. His hands are the best I have seen since Aaron Donald, and he is just so strong. He toys with everyone he faces and goes straight into the backfield with ease. Anything move you think he would want, he has it. He has a swim, rip, cross chop, club and it is all just beautiful. He plays with great pad level, and due to that, his fantastic first step is just so overpowered.His run defense is actually better, as he can just make about as many TFLs as you want to see, or his gap discipline is the best in the country, too. WIlliams is a complete prospect and is can’t miss star.Round Grade: Top 3NFL Comparison: Geno AtkinsTE Irv SmithHere is a guy with an athletic background, and boy does it ever show. Smith can fly for a tight end and makes some incredible catches with his extensive catch radius. He is super smart and can catch any ball in traffic if you want him to. Those hands are strong and he so easily turns catches into huge plays just off of his speed. He is actually an underrated blocker, but just is not strong enough yet to be a great one.His contested catch ability is somewhat lacking, which is concerning given his catch radius, and with less than ideal route running technique, Smith will need a good deal of time to refine his game. Add on top of that how raw of a blocker he is, and I expect Smith to be a day 2 type of project at TE.Round Grade: Early 3rdNFL Comparison: Chris HerndonILB Mack WilsonThe early ideal draft pick for the Steelers is Mack WIlson. This guy is a dude who can fly from sideline-to-sideline and not lose a step. His ability to work through traffic and evade blocks up front is some of the most impressive of his traits. No one is catching Wilson once he recognizes the play and comes flying downhill, as he is a rather sure-tackler too. His processing has been great, and man is he ever good in coverage. He can keep up with just about anyone on the field and have great coverage.The one knock on him is over-pursuing, which seems to be common for all athletic ILBs for some reason. Wilson needs to keep his angles tight in order to counteract that. Round Grade: Top 5NFL Comparison: Deion JonesBulldog BreakdownEDGE Montez SweatSweat has shown some fantastic improvement this year. His pad level has dramatically improved and his hips have loosened up, and it shows with how much bend he now has. The guy can bend as long as he uses his quick first step and gets those hands going. He likes the cross chop-rip combo, and it has worked well. His counter moves continue to improve as well.His run defense could use work, as he needs to set the edge better and then disengage too. That would be his one clear weakness, as a lot of runs are too his side  Ramon Foster Jersey  , and man sometimes they go for a very, very long while, unfortunately. Round Grade: Mid 1stNFL Comparison: Ryan KerriganIOL Elgton JenkinsThis guy is a huge sleeper in terms of offensive linemen. He is way more polished than people realize. His hands are great. The placement is just as good as you could get and he shows out every time he is bull rushed or tested. His hips are so loose and he can get up to the second level easily due to it. His processing of stunts in pass protection are also great.He is not a great athlete, or entirely strong, the latter of which can be worked upon, but the biggest concern is a slightly narrow base. That allows the better IDL to beat him inside with rips and catch him off balance. He can still pull well with the lack of athletic traits, but he unfortunately can get evaded easier than one would like to see.Round Grade: Mid 3rdNFL Comparison: John SullivanSleepersUMass WR Andy Isabella #23Isabella is really quick type of guy that has great slot receiver traits. He is the type of receiver to completely dice up a defense based off of that quickness alone. He is precise and smart out of that slot too. His route tree is huge and he is super precise with his breaks and routes. He finds the open spots in the zone rather easily and has strong hands to make catches in traffic. His body control is also great.Of course, he is quick, but not fast and has yet to show he can truly be a great outside guy, which would relegate him to slot only. His contested catch ability is not very good and if he does not get separation there is a big issue. His release needs works and he can get caught up in press too often.Round Grade: Mid 3rdNFL Comparison: Danny AmendolaWyoming EDGE Carl Granderson #91I really like Granderson’s ability to bend around the edge and use his hands to maintain that leverage. His hands are violent and really tough to counter. His cross chop-rip combo is near unstoppable and he even has a spin to win inside. His run defense is spectacular and this year he has started to play lower and implement some bull rushing.He needs a better first step, no doubt, and his speed-to-power conversion needs work for said bull rush to be any of significance. He is not very athletic so that step will never be explosive, but the processing and quickness have to come with it, simply put. He also needs to get stronger to maintain gap discipline inside on the run.Round Grade: Mid 4thNFL Comparison: Nate Orchard...Let us know what games your watching and who you have your eye on this Saturday. Setting the DeLorean time circuits to 1985. Back to the Future competed with Pee Wee’s Big Adventure at the box office. Tears for Fears wanted us all to Shout because Everybody Wants to Rule the World.After 12 games your Pittsburgh Steelers stood at 7-5, poised to return again to the playoffs as they had in 1984. Miami’s Siamese quarterback, Woodstrock had been surgically separated, only to have David Woodley come to Pittsburgh and share QB duties with Magnum PI, I mean, Mark Malone. Which is just about all you need to know to know how the season ended up. We lost our last four games to finish 7-9, and out of the playoffs. That we did not make the playoffs, however, did not mean our team was bereft of talent. The team was not that different from the one we fielded the year before, nor the record. in 1984 we finished 9-7, beat the Broncos in the first round of the playoffs before losing to Dan Marino’s Dolphins in the AFC Championship game. Malone and Woodley, Erenberg and Abercrombie were less than memorable. Louis Lipps and John Stallworth, however, were split wide, and had real talent. Stallworth of course made it into the Hall of Fame, Lou (they’re saying Lou  Vince Williams Jersey  , not boo) Lipps made it into the Pro Bowl.It was, as per usual, on the other side of the ball, however, where the Steelers were stronger. Keiths Gary and Willis were football’s equivalent of hockey’s Hanson Triplets- guys who seemed more interested in putting a hurt on the enemy than winning the game. Our defensive backfield sported Donnie Shell still from the glory years and a young Dwayne Woodruff. Another Steeler defensive back played a prominent role that year, as Tony Dungy served as our defensive coordinator.It was our linebacking corps, however, that was the strength of the defense. No, we no longer had Hall of Famers Lambert and Ham, but we did have Robin Cole, Bryan Hinckle, David Little, Mike Merriweather and Dennis “Dirt” Winston. Some were near the end of their time in the spotlight, others at the beginning, but all of them enjoyed long and successful NFL careers.In addition, we still had Mike Webster, a Hall of Famer, and as our kicker, Gary Anderson who like Donnie Shell, should be in the Hall of Fame. All of whom were coached by the Emperor Chaz who also has a bust in Canton.My goal for this walk down memory lane is neither to show off my memory, nor to practice my google-fu. Rather it is to remind us all that a.) we’re not in the playoffs yet and b.) even when we have disappointing seasons we have reasons to give thanks. It’s already been a roller coaster ride of a season. We’ve had drama. We’ve had grievous lapses and embarrassing losses. We’ve had dominating wins, and frightening injuries. We’ve had more JuJu joy, and Conner strong success. This is my first season without my dad to talk to. It’s my first season writing for BTSC. My hope is it will be my seventh season celebrating a Super Bowl victory. But even if it’s not, I’m grateful for every member of the Front Office, every coach and player on the team, and every citizen of Steelers Nation.  Custom Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys
