Avery is an EDGE. Would be a decent pick on day 3.

Justin Watson, an All-American WR from Penn via South Fayette, visited with Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert on Good Friday. Did not get a combine invite but tested very well at Penn's pro day last month. Considered a mid- or late-round prospect.

IDK, have you met Trey Quinn or Austin Pettis? Cut from that Kupp cloth.

I think we all know that the steelers will be drafting a WR in this draft just a matter of what round.

Wouldn't surprise me if they were also looking at WR Wilson as well. At the Boise pro day. ;)

my oldest child goes to SMU, and he's been raving about Trey Quinn since the Fall, even w/ C. Sutton on that team....Got a chance to watch Quinn at Parent's Weekend game---think he had 12 catches or something....Perfect slot receiver in the 5th...as Pettis likely goes in the 4th...imho....

There are a TON of fine WRs on day 3.

Thomas Davis from FIU
Richie James from Middle Tennessee
Jonah Tinnaman from BYU

I like Trey Quinn, too... but Davis offers more all-around game and Tinnaman is like a taller Tyreke Hill. Their QB situation there in BYU was first read and run like hell-- often you see Tinnaman waving his arms wide open or 5 yards behind the defense. He's definitely raw, but for bubble screens and deep balls... he's your guy.

Quote:
Freakishly athletic WR Jonah Trinnaman (5-10 1/2, 192) put on a show: 4.31/4.28 40s, 41.5 vertical, 12-0 broad. Wow!!!

This is a really weak WR class ( a'la 2006). I will not be surprised if no WR are drafted in the 1st round.

I guess what I'm saying is... the distance between the top guys and the bottom guys is not huge. There are a couple I don't mind in rounds 2 or 3, and then I'd be just as happy with a handful of late round guys.

Interesting tidbit on O'Daniel

Quote:
A fifth-year senior, O'Daniel arrived at the Greenville, S.C., school via Gaithersburg, Md. But don't let the area code confuse you. He is Canonsburg-born and Pittsburgh proud.

He is a 412/724 guy, just like his dad, Roger Scott, a running back at Woodland Hills High and Slippery Rock 20 years ago, and paternal grandfather Roger McKinnon, who played at Braddock High in the '60s.

O’Daniel’s family moved from Canonsburg to Maryland to be with his maternal grandfather when he was in the seventh grade.

Fittingly, the burgeoning star’s first college offer came from hometown Pitt when he was just a freshman at Our Lady of Good Counsel High, which sent seven of his former teammates to the NFL. Former Panthers coach Todd Graham, he of one-and-done fame, liked what he saw in the athletic running back-linebacker.

"It was a special moment, because Pitt knew I was from the area and they recognized me early," O'Daniel said. "The recruiting process got pretty crazy afterwards."

Though Pitt wasn't it for O'Daniel, whom Rivals.com ranked as the 40th overall prospect his senior year, he still remains true to his roots.

"I'm faithfully repping the Steelers, no doubt about it," said O'Daniel, who planned to commit to Michigan, but had his offer pulled days before a scheduled visit his junior year. "I have memorabilia all over the house. Needless to say, that loss to the Patriots hurt me. Their fans came out of the woodwork to give me a hard time."

I like the second two guys a lot. James is one of my three favorite late round WRs

Mailata measured just shy of 6-foot-8 and weighed 346 pounds. His arms measured a massive 35.5 inches. He was timed at 5.12 seconds in the 40-yard dash, which would have been good for seventh among tackle participants at the NFL Combine in February. He also excelled in the short shuttle with a time (4.67 seconds) that would have been among the top 10 at his position. Mailata put up 22 reps on the bench press.


I would rather see his BJ and VJ numbers

Not a strange one at all... prototypical Mick Munchak elite size/length/athlete for OL conversion. Villanueva, Matt Feiler, Mihalik. I knew they were interested, because they helped run his "pro day workout".

also very young... I think 19. compare his size/length/speed numbers to similarly aged Tyron Smith

6050 307 36.375 arms 31 reps 4.93 29 VJ 9'01" BJ 4.68 SS 7.47 3 cone
6080 346 35.5 arms 22 reps 5.12 4.67 SS
