2014 NFL Combine Results: Tight Ends

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    I’d be more than happy with them getting a TE to pair with Heath to create mismatches, and be his eventual replacement, I just kind of got the vibe from Colbert’s one interview that they might end up waiting until the next draft to find that guy.
    As for the OL, I’m pretty much in the camp with those who feel that, outside of a late round project that Munch likes, they’re not even going to look there, unless of course one they have rated high drops to a point where it’s just too good of a value to pass up.

    UDFA potential with that Bodine guy. I heard he’s related to Jethro Bodine — hay bale throwing strong!

  • 20Stoney

    Don’t forget about sister Jethrine!

  • blackandgoldBullion

    I forgot about her. Hey, even Elly May used to kick some butt!

  • StarSpangledSteeler

    Eric Ebron just ran a 4.50 forty. Probably raised his stock up near the top ten picks.

  • Kusko_Ken

    For what its worth..Matt”Money” Smith just said on NFL network that Eric Ebron told him he “felt a special connection with Mike Tomlin” when they met.

  • blackandgoldBullion

    Well sure, because he wants to be a Steeler. Think about it for a sec: He gets to go to a team that is historically good, with their top 2 TE’s that are much older than him. Sounds like a good situation, and I love the guy. I even heard an interview with him, and I love the way he speaks, as he exudes this quiet confidence. Let’s hope.

    I have not studied the TE class much, but after watching 10 min. of their combine drills, A.C. Leonard out of Tennessee State stands out to me.

  • shawn

    damn have to watch that … really ??? that is a little faster than ppl thought .. i think ur right that might have moved him up a bit :(

  • shawn

    that would be my top pick for us … lets hope!

  • grw1960

    4.60

  • WIINGY

    I think he had off the field problems if I remember correctly.

  • shawn

    i get the exact opposite vibe … i think they are likely to pick up a TE and I along with you would be very happy with it for the reasons you stated … his interview with Ebron sure doesnt hurt that notion

  • shawn

    ya would have been very surprised if he turned out a 4.5
