Pittsburgh got THE
steal of the draft two years in a row, why wouldn't we score the hat trick?
Deuce's real name is Dulymus Jenod McAllister. Can't really blame him for going with Deuce, for whatever reason.
No way in hell PIT got the SOTD in 2004 and 2005. First of all, I'm going to say that it is pretty hard to get a SOTD in the first round, because there's always some kid who becomes a star in the later rounds of the draft. In 2004, I believe the SOTD is Demorrio Williams at 4.5 (101 overall). He's turning into an impact player at LB...with a very low pick, as well. Darnell Dockett at 3.1 is playing good ball (dropped due to attitude questions) and when it's all said and done, Tatum Bell, Greg Jones, and Julius Jones may have had some damn good careers at RB out of the 2nd round. Love to Karlos Dansby, Madieu Williams, and Michael Boulware, too. The latter was a freaking LB in college and has made the transition to SS very well.
Miller may be doing very well in TDs right now. But come on, that just means they're looking for him in the red zone. That's what GB did with Bubba Franks a few years ago. I do agree taht he has very good hands and is a solid ballplayer, but he's never going to reach the level of Gates, Gonzalez, and Shockey. He will, however, be around that of Heap. He doesn't have the athleticism of the first group to ever be that good. But don't get me wrong, he's going to be a solid player...I live in Charlottesville and have seen him play. I think it's literally impossible to call an SOTD for 2005 this early, but as of now, I am feeling Odell Thurman, Lofa Tatupu. Watch out for fellow Cav Elton Brown (slipped from the first due to attitude/injury questions...absolute mauler at OG), Nick Collins at FS/CB, Vincent Jackson, Larry Brackins (two very raw projects), and Adrian McPherson. AD has the best tools in this QB set. However, he also has the worst toolbox. If he can ever get his head screwed on straight, watch out.

And upon further review, just as sappy, too."
