    Couple of points, I don’t think Mike has particularly long arms. 32″ is about average for a guy who is a tad over 6 feet tall. Same with his hands which were measured at 9″. Not that that makes a huge difference. His speed and explosiveness were exceptional, though. He had the fastest 10 yard split at the combine, (1.43), so he should be able to get off the line in a hurry. But his strength and agility numbers were just average for the position.

    Well I guess he figured it out, good pick Steelers. Thanks for grooming him for my Dolphins!!
