Steelers Morning Huddle 5/14/2014

Steelers season goes all year long so whether we’re breaking down free agency signings, recapping the draft choices, or looking around for mentions of your Black & Gold we’ve got you covered. Here’s what’s being said about your Pittsburgh Steelers around the block.

Steelers #17 in Power Rankings

The NFL Draft just ended a few days ago so naturally it’s time to start the Power Rankings, right? Give it to ESPN for jumping ahead on this one as Scott Brown reports the Steelers landed in the middle of the pack at number 17 on their Power Rankings. Apparently having the busiest offseason in recent memory along with a Mel Kiper “A” graded draft still didn’t inspire much confidence in the Steelers from whoever voted on this. Not like ESPN doesn’t have any total friggin tools working for them or anything.

Tuitt excited to get to work

The newly drafted Steelers rookies are getting outfitted with their equipment in preparation for rookie camp out at the South Side facilities. Stephon Tuitt has been in Pittsburgh since this weekend and announced earlier on Tuesday that he will be wearing uniform No. 91 for the Steelers. He’s got a lot to live up to with that number, that’s for sure.

 


Steelers “earth moving” draft pick

One guy from the draft that people can’t seem to stop talking about is Big Daniel McCullers, the defensive lineman the Steelers drafted in the sixth round out of Tennessee. He just might be the biggest player in Steelers history, according to Marc Sessler of Around the League. Some of the heaviest players in Steelers history include Max Starks, Chris Kemoeatu, Flozell Adams and Marcus Gilbert. No idea how Casey Hampton didn’t make that list except the fact that I don’t believe his weight was recorded accurately the last five years of his career. At any rate McCullers, or “Big Mack” if you will, tops out on all of them at 352. With that kind of size and weight he can surely clog some holes on the line, prompting this comment from NFL Media’s Charles Davis;

“He blots out the sun and the earth moves when he walks. He’s an absolute monster.” – Charles Davis
