"And So when Wince with down for the colts people's talking about trading him to the colts. But now you know doesn't he's gonna be out very long and easson their backup quarterback things weren't talented the rudolf so You know probably a six round pick would be all you'd get out of him And but i think that Haskins has more potential to be that long term answer after being And especially the way he's looking and getting into the the steelers culture and their environment And just being around being being around tomlin and the rooney family how they do phase it It seems like he's maturing And that's tells never been a question with him. It's been his maturity level and his work ethic. And you know somebody's contagious. And i think being around a locker room full them kinda gaza hard workers. He seems to be taking these his career more seriously there And just frayed. That rudolph is going to be gone or going to actually be a problem. He's gonna be in his way and while the has the guy the need to focus on so if you get a six around four you'd have to consider well here but let's go back to two thousand nineteen. I brought this up a few times and this does not mean that the steelers would make a deal for right away but you can always see something like. You're the first week of the season if we go back to nineteen and what happens at the time you you remember our it goes down and then all of a sudden you. You're with an unknown rookie in gardner Menchu the third and they need some help in jacksonville and they gave up a fifth round. Pick in the fifth round. Pick that they gave up was for joshua dogs now. The steelers were smart that year because they they did like what they had in die. There is a lot of people disappointed the that he was over over duct. But i think what they were trying to do. Was engineer trade for dobbs before week one and overcut cut down weekend in. I don't think it worked out. But so i can really see right now. I could really see joshua dobbs being the odd man out right now this year because he is the safest to go ahead and cut and let go but let him know that. Hey were you know. They're not going to keep the caliber of backups. They're not gonna keep a guy like haskins or rudolph as their number three. I just don't see them doing it. When you have a guy capable of being a number three like joshua dobbs so they can play a little game there. It is a game of chicken of nfl trade chicken and waiver wire chicken. But i could see them doing that by trying to deal. Mason rudolph if indeed. They end up liking the future that they might have with dwayne haskins and keeping him as the number two and being fine with having with having him there as a number three and and that being but do not be surprised on cut down day. If mason rudolph is immediately named the number two. But they're still trying to deal so that's a game you've got to play to you. Don't want to say name him as a three when you're trying to move him to another kids right now you're going you're not gonna hear anything negative about any of these guys because you've got to make it look like you've got gold here. Somebody meant in its andrew. Willmar mentioned i'm going to bring this up on the screen. Peter schrager said their nfl teams. Who see mason as a future started. The steelers can get something in a trade. He thinks they can get a fourth. If you can get a fifth out of josh dobbs but that was a desperate from jacksonville at the time came you get. Can you get a fourth out of mason rudolph. It's really interesting and You know somebody mentioned Who are hey mentioned is like wow. We're talking about draft season draft in the season. I haven't started. Actually we're not. We're just talking about what they're going to do with the players and the depth that they have 'cause you don't keep all of these guys on the roster so i can actually see them go ahead and move one of them. I would think that mason rudolph would be probably a prime candidate to be moved if they could find a buyer. And we've been talking about. How great kevin. Colbert is to be a great general manager. You've got to be an awesome salesman to if you can be a great salesman. There's another thing i mean. You can sell anything if you let people know how much you need. You need him. Hey you can't live without not having a mason rudolph on your roster because what if what if something happens to. What if something happens to. Patrick mahomes yet. I mean what if something happens to dak prescott you would need mason rudolph there what you're going to live life from garrett gobert i mean that's that's the conversations that i envision them happy and i'm a sales guy so let's become the things that i think about but that's really good there i. I'm thinking of another guy too and i gotta think that that presley and i keep on saying this i keep calling him presi the harbin and i because it just seemed i keep on messing up the var but presley harvard in the third. I do not see a scenario where he is. Let go from this roster. i mean. There's too much hype on them. There's no keep them on the practice squad. But if jordan berry keeps kicking the way that he is that's the seventh round draft. Pick for a team that would need a punter. Would you agree tony. I don't know. I mean i think trying to trade punter and the nfl's trying to trade a kicker and in fantasy football you can always pick up a kicker that's and get comparable numbers you know even if it's even if the guy that you know they want to trade is better you can probably get close to the numbers you need somebody who can pick up the free agent so i don't know if they do get something for him and maybe a seventh round pick. But that's a size i because there's such a supply and demand thing with kickers and punters. There's always somebody out that you know. If if the steelers release bury the that wants him one. Probably just hurry up snatching up anyway. Well not so fast. My friend and i'm gonna ask shannon white to weigh in on this stu. The steelers have traded australian punters in the past. If you remember brad wing going for a seventh round. Pick to the new york football giants in favor of jordan berry. If i'm not mistaken so you know. Brad wang is i mean somebody found that they wanted brad wing enough and the giants were takers. A they gave Round pick and here's the other reason for not so fast my friend If the practice squad looks the same that it does last year they can probably play a little game there with it as well because remember cordless weightman was on the practice squad all of last year and sometimes i don't know if they did it with weightman but the practice squads gonna look the same and i believe you're going to be able to protect for each week so if the first week or two something happens to a punter and the first week or two you you have berry protected. Maybe something like that. Then maybe maybe you're making a deal there. So i i actually think that they can.

"An extra derby chair could be the lump special. no brian. anthony davis her podcast teaser. What's going on brian. How are you. i'm all above tonight. Feeling good stay scope. Brian took my line all right. We're going to try to keep that stuff to part two. We said that in in this month of not having as much to talk about not a lot of news we were going to do the fun stuff and part party. So we'll try to keep the beehive commentary to a minimum. Can't say it's not going to be talked about but it'll be at a minimum all right. The only news that talked about today was that the steelers signed a backup kicker I view this as a nasty right type signing. They need an extra leg in camp. You wanna have someone. That's familiar with the system. In case chris boswell gets heard before we talk about the dave. My question is it did the nfl. Brian maybe you know this. I shouldn't assume that it's just a the. Nfl say they're going to have expanded practice. Squad rosters again in twenty twenty one. They it's not official. But it from anything that i've heard but it was the discussion and both sides wanted so as it does happen. I don't know that it's they've made the official announcement about him. Sit in that makes sense that the steelers would have another kicker on the roster. They could keep that kicker on the practice squad in case of injury and they could promote them if they had to. That's what they did last year. But we'll see. We'll see. Brian thoughts on the kicker being side in its sloman. What's his first name. I forget stam stan. I don't know what his name is. here's an sam. Sludge band clam milan. Ooh that was almost my radio. Brian malone was almost my radio name back in nineteen ninety because of sam malone so but then it became something different. So you first of all when we're talking about the practice squads if that happens it's a win win for both sides. Dave said both sides wanted. I think that's fantastic. Because being able to protect these guys even if you you know you protected four last year that might go down a little bit but even if it does if you could protect to. That's still a pretty good deal for you to be able to do that each and every week. Make sure somebody doesn't fly the coop. That's kind of like it that way. You know it's a win. It gives more guys opportunities to make in this league as well so i would love to see them do that. We saw it last year. The punter i mean cordless weightman was on this team all year. Long up as a practice squad player and he had a job all he would have not normally had a job but bringing in sam sloman what it does is it gives chris boswell a chance to relax during camp still be on guard but relax and i mean you don't have to put all the wear and tear on him. Give give a kid a chance to not just stick with your team on the practice squad but go the route of auditioning for thirty one other clubs if you have a nice preseason then you get a job elsewhere. Let's think about this. This put it this way. i mean. Think about the past two times. The steelers have had part-time kickers in some capacity in a regular season radi bullock in matthew right last season both of them became kickers. Now with the bengals draft kicker so bullets going to be looking for work but still matthew right. It was the detroit. Lions in my right dave that picked him up and gave him a contract in see if he can kick for them. I don't think he's made the team yet but still it was. It was one of those season moves like right. After the season ended their players go into reserve contracts and stuff future deals anyways dave. What are your thoughts on the new kicker anything. Well that's what. I brought up in our slack channel about that. This has nothing to do with chris. Boswell and competition there. This is all about making him not get overworked in through training camp with practices pre-season games and everything which does allow somebody else to showcase what they can do that. It's it's not a controversy. Anything like well. Then why would someone want to do that. They don't really have a chance to make team. You're having a chance to show what you can do. Because they don't want to overwork boswell and of story and you are correct matt right. It was with the detroit. Lions okay all right. So enough kicker talk We're going to talk about something which i'm actually excited zog because for some reason Coming into this draft the twenty twenty one nfl draft. I just wasn't that excited about it. i don't know why was. Maybe i was just kind of thinking that the steelers with the salary cap decreasing. But i've really come to have high hopes for this draft class and even as the draft was going on. You're thinking this player might be good a few years down the road but how many of these players are going to be an impact player this season and so. That's kind of the crux of where we up with. Today's podcast. today's topic. Is we want to rank the rookies in order of importance. Not for the future but for twenty twenty one so all three of us. We have the list of the nine rookies in. We rank them. Drown drafted rookies greg. We're gonna talk about undrafted. Rookies separately with the draft drafted. Rookies one through nine. We ranked one being the most important nine being the least or gonna go from lease to the most important in. I think that some might sit. Say well this is gonna be. Everyone knows no one's going to be not necessarily not necessarily before we get started. Let me refresh. Everyone's memory of the nine draft picks in order for found technology harris. Second round pick pat fri- third round pick kendrick green and then two fourth round. Pick stanmore junior. In buddy johnson fifth round take isaiah louder milk sixth round pick quincy rochet cue from the u. Two sevens round picks traynor would an presley harbin third. Okay so what are you gonna do this from or to go around the horn and we're gonna do from the what we feel is the least important for this season again. I can't stress this enough this season. We might be saying that this player could be great two years. We're not talking about two years this season. let's start. We'll go brian. dave. And then i'll china's well that'll be the order that we go into brian. You go first..
