The Beard is baaaaack...

TBH, I hoped for more from some of the younger DL guys.  This improves the mix.

Nice.

Deepest position on the depth charts.

Solid mentor for the young guys too.

Locks:  Heyward, McLendon, Tuitt, Thomas, Keisel.

Guys pushing for the DL6 and *DL7:  McCullers, Mauro.

Guys who may go PS:  Arnfelt, Williams.

Frankly, I've liked Mauro's hustle.  Arnfelt has great measurables and was a decent depth surprise in 2013, but hasn't capitalized in 2014.  Would not mind keeping him AND Williams, and converting one to OT.  Why not?  Can't be worse than the OT depth we have now.  Size is right.

Wonder if Pittsburgh felt things fell in to place, with Dockett's injury making PittWest interested, while the PS was also expanded to 10, making it easier to keep Mauro and one Williams/Arnfelt in the back pocket.  Perfect storm of sorts.  I was not particularly interested in bringing Keisel back as Tuitt has shown some really good stuff in the 1st two preseason games.  Speed, power.  Understand the notion of vet guy, should the new guy (Cam Thomas) or rookie Tuitt falter, but I was happy to move to the younger guys and would prefer to keep Mauro to Keisel.

Really not expecting James Harrison back as I think that they'll keep Garvin and HoJo as the last two LBs.  Zumwalt has been MIA.  I'd really like them to give Chris Carter his pink slip but he can play teams whereas Harrison can't.

Maybe Harrison ends up in AZ?

Yeah, I'd consider So'oto over Carter.  And IMO Keisel will be a wave player, not an every down guy.  He may WANT to be a starter, but...

Yeah, Zumwalt never lived up to the hype (of some).  High-energy type, but dinged, never got into a rhythm. 

Mauro should be a PS priority if we go 6.
