  1. Predictions on Bell’s totals? I’m a Pittsburgh’er who was happy, yet surprised, we took Bell over Ball in this year’s Draft. The more I look at it, the more I like the pick for our team – but I think we’d be lucky to have either. I’m just thinking how nice it would be to have an RB with hands to check down to when Ben leaves the pocket. Considering how often that is, I think his role could be even bigger than anticipated. Heath will likely have to block more because it, but if our line can continue to improve we may be able to get away with a lot more than before – especially in double TE sets. In the past, guys like Mewelde Moore and Chris Rainey have been our only backs who we could trust checking down to, so I’m thinking we could get kind of carried away with it now that we can do it on 1st and 2nd down. What do you see his stats looking like come January? I’m obviously just an optimistic fan, but barring injury I see us relying on him heavily. Too heavily, you think?


    • ‘Big Rig’ will be the most sought after rookie this fall. The ex-Spartan embodies characteristics the Steelers typically cherish in a rusher – brawn, toughness, endurance, strong blocking ability and a three-down skill set.
      It would be no surprise if he finished well-inside the top-10 in YAC. Also a sensational pass-blocker and excellent receiver, he’s an instant upgrade in all facets over flawed options Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman.
      You can figure that Bell, come January, will have at least 300+ touches and make a huge contribution for your Steelers.
      Thanks for checking in AJ!


  2. The Broncos are pass happy, so I think Hillman is their best bet. I like Bell in Pittsburgh, he looks to be reminiscent of Bettis. Austin will fail at 5’8 and be thrown to by Sam Bradford, he’ll be like Amendola. Woods will play as well as his QB plays……don’t touch him. The rookies I like are Bell, Davis, Dobson, and maybe Patterson.


  3. As a Wisconsin fan, I look forward to Montee Ball starting in Denver. However, I doubt his potential as a viable starter. His game is tailor-made for the college level. I’ll be rooting for him, though!


    • Yeah, there’s not much he can’t do. He will lose some goal line touches to the law firm but will see plenty of action himself while becoming BJGE’s handcuff.
      Thanks for checking in Maurice!


      • Didn’t pick him as you can see because I’m not sure what his role will be in Cincy. Gresham has had at least 50 catches & 4 TDs in each of his 3 seasons plus Dalton LOVES his man A.J. Green, his favorite receiver so I’m not sure how much offense the Bengals will offer Eifert..
        On any other team in need of a TE Eifert would be amazing (He did have 1,488 receiving yards with Notre Dame, more than any D-1 TE). So he’s talented alright. But for now the jury remains out on him for me.
