    Yup, and here is a link from SI where it shows him pancaking a d lineman in the Senior Bowl and his quickness off the line to get a free release in the passing game. https://www.si.com/nfl/patriots/gm-r...-adam-trautman

    I meant to come back to these guys sooner. The athleticism of these 2 is off the charts. I don't know their 40 times but you can see they play the game very fast. Mid to late round picks, IMO.

    This is a game highlights film of Memphis vs Navy from 2018 I think. Anthony Miller and Darrell Henderson are the feature offensive players. Defensively there are 3 players to watch out for. 2 in this year's draft with DE-Bryce Huff, & ILB-Austin Hall, and CB-TJ Carter who will be available in 2021 draft.

    I would love to see the steelers draft a fast WR or RB in this draft.Like a homerun hitter like Mike Wallace or Willie Parker were for us.

    John Clayton Mock Draft: Steelers Go WR At #49

    Daniel Jeremiah who most people respect as a draft analyst says there are 26 WRs that he would give a 1st or 2nd round grade on in this draft. Why spend pick 49 on a WR when the talent at that position is so deep we can get an equivalent WR in rounds 4-6? AND if teams just start drafting WR after WR after WR that leaves a ton of talent at other positions of greater value for the Steelers. I do believe the steelers will draft a WR in this draft but unless they are just in love with one single player and must get him at 49 I just don't see this pick happening. But never say never I guess.

    For any KJ Hamler fans, Darnell Mooney is basically the same player but could be had in rounds 3-4.




    Not much tape on YouTube besides vs FIU.

    Re: 2020 Draft Prospects Thread

    I really like Mooney as a college WR. As a Memphis alum and lifelong fan I get to see some Tulane every year so I am familiar. Mooney is just so small. He is fast but is he NFL fast is the question. He's a pure slot WR maybe in the mold of a Keenan Allen? Just being that small I wonder can he hold up. I would love to see him brought in as a UDFA.

    Excellent point

    If one can get AB in R6, why draft him in R3... let alone R1.

    Or just look at 2010...AB was pick 195 overall. Emmanuel Sanders was 82 overall. Even if another team had drafted Sanders before the steelers 3rd round pick we still get AB in the 6th.

    Yeah,if the GM of the Ravens is right,we need to wait at least until the fourth round for a WR.

    I think this is crazy. 1st the 4 players are not players I would want at 49. Then the overwhelming top choice is a RB with fumble issues in college. Great production yes, GREAT PRODUCTION. 18 fumbles in 3 seasons losing 15 of them. That is not what the Steelers want or need.
    K.J. Hamler is dwarfed by Diontae Johnson.
    Jalen Reagor is more of a slot/"X" WR. My choice at WR would be more of the "Z" variety. I love his speed and skillset though from where he does fit.
    Cam Akers is Jonathan Taylor behind a terrible OL. His 10 fumbles/losing 7 in his 3 years makes him a no-no to me as well.

    So who would I draft of these 4? Reagor is easily the choice here.

    Re: 2020 Draft Prospects Thread

    Per Tony Pauline from PFF

    Center Matt Hennessy drawing interest around the leagueThe Jets, who own the Giants’ selection in the third round, also have a lot of interest in Hennessy. I am told if they select Hennessey, it would be to play center. Newly signed free agent Connor McGovern would then slide over to guard, the position many thought he played his best football at while in Denver.


    The Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, and Pittsburgh Steelers all have a significant interest in Hennessy. Of that group, Pittsburgh projects him to guard.

    Winfield just feels like a Steeler. He checks so many boxes. The Steelers have been looking for a 3rd safety to use in sub package for a few years now, and Winfield is the most versatile safety in the class. Can play as a center fielder or cover receivers in the slot. Minkah and Winfield can go back and forth with those roles. His father also had a long successful NFL career, and we all know the Steelers like bloodlines. Tomlin also coached Winfield Sr during his time with the Vikings.

    Mims is a beast. If he gets out of round one he'll go early round 2 Imo.

    Ruiz, like Mims would be incredible to have if he fell.

    I'm much lower on Claypool. Late 3rd/early 4th is his best value. Good vertical and red zone threat, but not much of a route runner or catch and run receiver. Also, I don't see 4.4 speed on game film. I for one can see him falling to the Steelers comp pick where they find a Martavis Bryant replacement, I'll probably be wrong though.


    So my answer is Winfield Jr.

    Re: 2020 Draft Prospects Thread

    Getting into draft week now. All the talk and speculation is just about over and the picks are actually(virtually) about to happen. Here are some players I definitely want to see with the Steelers. Unfortunately some of them cross positions so no way we can draft both or all.

    1. Winfield Jr DB Minnesota. This is the perfect Safety for the Steelers needs and how they love athleticism and position flexibility.
    2. Tanner Muse SS/ILB Clemson. Another Perfect Steeler type player that can be used from multiple positions on the defense. At 6'2" and 227lbs he has the coverage ability to play a Safety role, and can be played inside or outside as a LB.
    3. Isaiah Simmons ILB/Safety Clemson. Probably my favorite player in this draft. A one man wrecking machine on the defense. Can play in the secondary, stuff the run, or effectively blitz and harass QBs from anywhere. The most TP43 player I have seen since the real TP43.
    4. Xavier McKinney Safety Bama. The best pure Safety in this draft.
    I think one of these players will be a Steeler's draft pick by the start of the 4th round. Most likely Tanner Muse at 102 overall. But should the impossible happen I would love to see one of the other 3 guys I mentioned fall to pick 49 overall.

    5. Zack Baun LB Wisconsin. Line him up anywhere along the defensive front and watch him wreak havoc. Best all around LB in this draft , IMO.
    6. Chase Young OLB OSU. Best pass rusher in this draft. Should be the #1 overall pick, IMO.
    Neither is expected to fall out of the top 10. But never tell me the odds!

    There are a lot of guys on the offensive side of the ball I would like to see as a Steeler but so many it's tough to nail them down without making a 50 player list. I can probably find an OL I would love in each round. Same with WRs. Who are some names you guys think make the best Steelers from this draft?

    Re: 2020 Draft Prospects Thread

    Draft week MOCK-no simulator:

    49: Isaiah Wilson RT Georgia. 6'7"-340lbs. The OL gets solidified with Feiler moving to LG. Wilson and Banner become the RT rotation. Derwin Gray becomes the backup at LT with Chuks being the swing OT backup.
    102: Tanner Muse SS/ILB Clemson. 6'2"-227lbs. Muse is a moving chess piece in an already dominant defense. Just deploy and unleash.
    124: Quintez Cephus WR Wisconsin. 6'1"-200lbs. This is the possession WR the Steelers were missing last season. Can play outside or from the slot. A move piece defenses will have to gameplan for. Cephus is strong and very hard to bring down once he has the ball.
    135: John Simpson OG Clemson. 6'5"-330lbs. Once again the Steelers visit Clemson with an entourage. Being the only pro day on the map another Clemson Tiger is selected here. Simpson is a brute OG and made for opening running lanes for guys like Conner and Snell. This pick further solidifies the OL for the next decade.
    198: Bravvion Roy NT Baylor. 6'1"-330lbs. Bowling ball of a defensive tackle that has the ability to hold his ground and play a 2-gap role, or shoot the gap and rush the passer. Likely backup to Big Dan to start but could move into the starter role by the end of the season.
    232: Patrick Taylor RB Memphis. 6'3"-227lbs. Fits the Steelers size and speed qualifications at RB. Have to go back to Taylor's 2018 film to see his power and abilities with the ball due to a 2019 injury. Taylor can be the power back, with just enough shiftiness to add some finesse in the open field, plus he brings the ability to be a receiver out of the backfield.

    Akers to the Steelers has been gaining momentum lately. IMO, Akers is another one the Steelers would need to take at 49 or not at all. His 10 fumbles(5 in one season) in 36 games on only 586 total carries is a red flag. Also not really known as a pass catcher. However, I do like Akers' size and speed and he does look the part of a Steelers' guy. Interesting note, Akers was a highschool dual threat QB so he could replace Samuels as a wildcat option. I think he fits the Steelers' offense better than other RBs that have been suggested.

    I'm just going to bump this post. This is the replacement for Bell. Can play RB with the speed to break the big runs, plays WR from the slot or outside with the athleticism to get open and make contested catches and defenders miss in the open field, also a successful kick returner with a 28 yard return average on 23 returns. Because Gibson was more part of a committe approach in college he has low mileage which may also allow him to fall to the 3rd round comp pick due to a small sample size on film.

    This is the RB I want the Steelers to draft IF they draft a RB at all.

    Gibson is a difficult eval. He only had 34 career carries in college, so his resume of running between the tackles like he would have to in the NFL is rather limited. He looks the part as an athlete but very challenging to tell if he can be an NFL RB or if he is a slot receiver or 3rd down RB.
