Reader EasyLikeSundayMorning sent this comment along Tuesday night: “A suggestion for a post: a listing of the best articles, videos, scouting reports, etc. for each of our draft picks. I’m lazy and I assume I’m not the only one.”
If there’s one thing we admire it’s honesty about laziness. So, yes, of course. We’d LOVE to put together the best reads, vids and scouting reports of the Steelers draft class. I figure we’ll break this up by players so as not to overwhelm you, and to also spread out the content since, you know, there currently is no football. On we trudge…
The info on Cameron Heyward is exhaustive, although I suspect it will be a much harder for guys like Cortez Allen and Keith Williams. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. Enjoy.
1.31. Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio St.
* Ohio State’s Heyward a mirror image of his father [Post-Gazette]
* Heyward Determined to Escape Dad’s Shadow [NorthJersey.com]
* Heyward Lacking as OSU’s Big Name [Ohio.com]
(Editor’s note: nothing screams credibility like killing a guy and then two weeks later backtracking with “Just kidding! I think he’s great!”)
vs. Oregon, Rose Bowl, Jan. 2010
Heyward looks like a bigger, faster Aaron Smith (and with two working arms, too!)
vs. Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin, 2010
Upon first viewing, Carimi wins.
vs. Illinois, 2010
Heyward understands the scheme and his responsibility in it. To my untrained eye it’s pretty impressive.
vs. Arkansas, Sugar Bowl, 2011
Oh my. Complete one-armed domination.
