Season 2, Episode 95 of The Terrible Podcast is up and with David Todd start off by wishing Hall of Fame cornerback Mel Blount a Happy 64th Birthday and discuss how he changed the game.
We move forward and discuss the free agent visit made Tuesday by tight end Leonard Pope, who ended up signing later in the day, even though I thought the Steelers might wait until after the draft. In my opinion the Pope signing really means nothing. We also discuss the recent pre draft visits to the Southside made by Akiem Hicks, Michael Egnew, Nick Perry and Mychal Kendricks. When we start discussing Perry we talk about whether or not the Steelers would draft another outside linebacker early in the draft and go through several players and scenarios.
We talked about offensive linemen some in the last podcast and continue on with assessment of both the guard and tackle prospects where I clearly feel that the guard class is the much more deeper position with a few prospects that could also play tackle in a pinch should the need arise with their position flexibility.
What about the top rated players out of Alabama in this class? We discuss Dre Kirkpatrick, Courtney Upshaw and Josh Chapman briefly and wonder just how far Chapman could fall and if the Steelers need another nose tackle coming off ACL surgery.
There are a few other items I failed to recap, but as usual it is another fast moving episode.
