"alex highsmith" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"List. I'd camp sutton. Tj wad came hayward in traynor would that's only four. There's five more winners left. I got a little creative with some of them and then we have three losers to go through. We're going to do that all here. In the second half. Let's get things rolling. Melvin ingram and alex highsmith. I put them together now together. Even does not even come close to having statistics or stuff that you see on a statute or a box score. That would make you think. Well these guys deserve to be there. But what i want to emphasize here is them. Being two thirds of the pass rushing trio for the pittsburgh steelers. So we know. Tj watt inflicted major damage on the buffalo bills offense but the fact that melvin ingram. Alex highsmith alex highsmith by the way who missed practice in the week was questionable. As of friday and then saturday days eight. He's not questionable anymore. He's going to play with a groin injury. So with highsmith ingram both healthy. They didn't have to being the steelers. They did not have to go out there and throw. Tj watt out there and say you're playing seventy five percent of the sam's no instead they said. Hey we can break this thing up let's say. Tj walkers break ingram and highsmith rin ingram as a break wotton highsmith highsmith needs a break wadden ingram. You see where. I'm going with this without ingram in highsmith who both had tremendous games. I thought both were held often. I can't that. Sounds like i'm being a little whiny baby but if you watch the game the steelers pass rushers were held so much in this game and they just didn't throw the flag and they threw a lot of flags on them too. By the way. But still melvin ingram. Alex smith michael beck. Put this out on twitter and it's a really good question instead. Is this the best trio of pass rushers. The steelers have seen in the modern era. And i i would be hard pressed. If they can continue to us. I would be hard pressed to disagree that this isn't the best that we've seen in nats says a lot that says a lot. Let's go to the next winter. Deontay johnson stat line five catches thirty six yards. One incredible touchdown ten wapping targets. Though ten targets he was targeted. Ten times by ben rothlisberger. The second person on the list of targets was juju. Smith schuster with eight deontay johnson targeted ten times five catches thirty six yard. One i i just wanna talk about touchdown. This was a game last year. If you rewind the tape go back to two thousand. Twenty was the buffalo game or deontay johnson. The very first drive. He dropped a really easy catch. And it kind of just snowballed from there. You just saw all these things happening where he just seemed like he was losing his confidence. He wasn't sure what to do nonetheless. He comes back. And i thought he had a great game. Did leave injured at one. Point came back. Into the game the touchdown catch what a catch. The ball's tipped by the buffalo bills defensive back who's guarding him. I'm not sure who it was. He ends up not only just coming down with but getting to feed in the end zone. A tremendous touchdown. It was the play that they needed was obvious at times that rothlisberger was not going to be able to just throw the team on his back. Like we've seen him do so many times before in his career. He's gonna need some help. And in this case that was the play that rothlisberger needed you saw chase. Clay will have one of those plays later on jujubes misused. Read a couple of those plays. These are the plays. They're going to make for number seven at this stage of his career released early in the season. So good job by deonte johnson. He didn't drop a pass in my opinion in this game. And he had the bit one of the biggest offense a place for the steelers in that touchdown. Reception all right. Let's go to another duo. I already said highsmith and ingram this time ago. And with miles killebrew and ulysses gilbert the third y miles killebrew comes up the middle on a punt block his hand the ball and boy. Does this guy special teamer me. He's he came from detroit terror loss and they had a connection there. Miles killer was known for special teams. Play watched the play again. If you go to the game recap. I have that video embedded into the article. Watch the play again. And you'll as he approaches the punter. He knows exactly what to do. Go to the side. Put your arms out. don't hit the punter. You don't wanna run into the kicker and give them a free set of downs. He does it perfectly know. It was a big mix up on the buffalo front but still he gets the ball. He knocks it down. It was Yuji three third scoops it up and scores in. What a change in dynamic little story about that. So i'm watching the game just myself my sons there. My we have an old dog. He's a sixteen or years old and he's up and around dubinin. I said well my son you take the dog out. And he said sure so. He's coming back into the house. And all of a sudden you hear the door like something something nettles hitting the ground. The steelers get a sack. It's exciting i'm pumped up what. What was that sounds. I go over thinking that the buffalo bills gonna upon. I'm not gonna miss much. I will be back. But all of a sudden i come back to the tv only like a minute later. In i see the pittsburgh steelers are celebrating touchdown. i missed it. I had to rewind it. Watch the punt block. Shame on me is what what you should say. Shame on me but nonetheless all is well with the world. Congratulations to killebrew and gilbert for being on the winners less. The last two had mere stat lines..

"Justify facts. Alex highsmith recently mentioned that. He's more motivated to achieve in his second year in pittsburgh because fans wanted the team to draft him outside. Linebacker gonna get to that is second. They did draft one. The sixth round in the former quincy rochet. There's a lot of excitement but the team is really obviously super high on highsmith and yeah. They should be the third round from unc. Charlotte only had two sacks last season. But he did not start until december eighth remember at the very beginning of december but do pre blew out his knee and highsmith had come in highs with only had two sacks on the year and i get that but fans are fickle fans. Worry fans they think about the fact that what if what have you done for me yet. Not what have you done for me lately. Apologies to janet jackson. But what i'm saying. Is they fear. The unknown and alex highsmith. There's some excitement about alex highsmith. But he's still a little bit of an unknown however think about this after palomar lose first season paula malai. You know he's in the hall of fame at least getting ready to get into the hall of fame. He has his reservations. He has already his speaker his his introducer his. That's you know who that is. My gosh coach dad. That's awesome dick. Lebeau there As his presenter. I guess that's the official name for it. So they have him. Also cam heyward ban. It took him into his third season for fans it to think that he wasn't a bust. No one's going to say that. Now people are leery about tj watt. So they were all under the same. But look at what you have. When you have alex smith the guy has got a high motor. That's number one also about alex smith. He's playing on the same side as steph onto it. He's playing opposite. T. watt and this guy just has a hunger for the quarterback. What i'm saying here is alex. Highsmith is probably going to push if not eclipse double digits and sacks as the right outside linebacker or right edge rusher. Whatever you wanna call them. Look you've got a chip on your shoulder about this. Put it on there. I want the whole team of a chip on their shoulder. I want the entire team to say. Hey you guys can't do this. You guys are not going to get to five hundred with the media saying they eat that up. That's motivation for this team. I love it. let it fuel you. Alex highsmith meant a can't wait to see number fifty six this year. He is going to be epic factor. Fiction number four lay beyond bell will never play for the steelers again fact blah blah blah blah blah. We talk about this all the time with on bell. Getting a social media will always steeler fans. He tweeted twenty twenty. One will be the year. You're all reminded after fan quipped back. That bell has said that the past three years bell got in a sh twitter match with them. They should have paid me what i wanted when they had the chance. Laughter emoji. how delusional is this guy. That calls himself juice. what happened. The steelers offered bella five years. Seventy million dollar deal back in two thousand seventeen. He chose to sit out the twenty eighteen season before signing a four year. Fifty two point five million dollar deal with the new york jets but the new york jets didn't use me right says avion bowel. He played seventeen games in new york. He did hardly anything with the chiefs last season. Only a fans for some reason one of this guy back in black and gold. I would've taken him back. I went on record. Seyni i bring him back. But now not g harrison the mix. There's no reason to ever entertain a reunion for this guy. Leon bell. i root for you. You're delusional sometimes. I don't get it. Wow factor fiction number four. So we're on number four. I tell you what we just did. Number four. I'm a fired up because of libyan bell number five mike tomlin will not finish his. Nfl coaching career in the top. Ten for wins fiction if tomlin continues his streak of not having a losing season. The most recent iron mike. That's what i'm gonna call them out. Iron mike tomlin he could actually achieve this amazing milestone in less than five more seasons about this. In fourteen seasons michael pedal tomlin has one hundred and forty five regular season victories in a tie at twenty one. All time we'll seattle's pete carroll. He's just four. Notches behind william laird cower. His predecessor in pittsburgh the coach currently in tenth place right now with one hundred forty six actually lip scratch that with one. Hundred and eighty six is forty. One wins ahead. That's one truck knocks. You remember him with the la rams and the seattle seahawks however the steelers headman is going to have competition for the honor with the aforementioned carol and new orleans sean payton whose one notch back at one forty three. But think about it man if you average. He's got one hundred and forty five regular season victories so if he continues to have those winning seasons that means that he has nine a year in the next five years. That's forty he would be sitting at one ninety. If he's sitting at one ninety ben he will be passing up chuck knox in some around tenth place but.

"They're coming out of it surprised by induced by the virus but Mike Tomlin. steelers remain committed to perseverance and protocol they're determined to be led under feet from week to week to pay the barn red if read pain is what's available and to adjust matter what comes next from the pandemic. At least they have their health, the eagles meanwhile look if they've just gone fifteen rounds with Paulo creed, an offensive line and wide receiver in particular Philly has been stretched. Thin by injuries that made beating Cincinnati problematic put the eagles somehow may just enough plays last Sunday night and walked off the field winners in San Francisco you'll. Adrian we did it. To do it again, the birds will have to at least hold their own against the steelers magnificent seven upfront. Given phillies cobbled together collection of blockers that would be a bigger upset than colonies England in seventy six. Carson Wentz. It better be invincible or perhaps a descendant of Ben Franklin can invent the method of blocking TJ, what a cruel and unrelenting enemy leads no choice. But a brave resistance and Philadelphia maybe in need of such a revolutionary approach merely tossing cheese steaks from PAT's king of steaks into the confluence won't cut it. Tyranny the steelers is not easily conquered. Are. You ready for some football. At. One end of Pennsylvania stands let's battered and bruised, but also resourceful and resilient. Can't you see me standing here I, got my back against the record machine. I ate the worst that you've seen even if the stats suggest otherwise. At the other end of the Commonwealth Weights Ben. Rothlisberger. He's undefeated but also a little honked off after a Cova nineteen outbreak in Nashville and the NFL's response conspired to interrupt his comeback. Rothlisberger would love nothing more than to author a signature victory upon its resumption. In letters so big as to be easily read with or without a King's spectacles. PROSCIUTTO. The. Dogs into it. Everybody's excited. steelers eagles this Sunday, although it is weird that you play the eagles. Underneath it because that'd be like them playing renegade and be like here we go eagles but I get I, get the intent. What can I just point out the you guys know I like to try to cram in a lot of references and entertain myself as well as the listening audience that one included references or direct quotes. From. Apollo, creed rocky the magnificent seven, the revolutionary war invincible Ben Franklin George Washington Pat Stakes the Boston Tea Party Thomas Paine John Hancock, Eddie van Halen, and Hake. It's like a flow history and pop culture mad lib that was yeah. Incredible. To things by now when they're playing the giants or jets, there's going to be a reference to the swamps Jersey and when they play the eagles, there's going to be a reference to PAT's mistakes.

"From Keith Butler today and a little. From Randy fichtner. But when band McDonald is as good as he was yesterday. You just gotta serve it up. It's not compelling including. Vance McDonald talking about his interpretation of the leadership Ben. Rothlisberger has been displaying all season the. Week by week critical self critiques as a yet another example of how invested Rothlisberger has been upon his return from Elbow Surgery Yeah I said, you know early on going back the all season, there's a fire under band that. In. The Not only do I see but other people. Picked up on it and you know that he got, he's got qualities emmys just a natural leader. That That's just contagious. You know. Specifically talking about your question to see a guy who's been doing it for so long you know come out and continue to. The. Thing that you hear coaches say that can almost be annoying at times. been on how your mood or mindset of like you know you're only getting better the day that you don't get better you're getting worse So to see a guy like like Ben come out and been doing it for. So long he is doing little things each day to improve his game come. Yeah it's contagious for guys for guys to see it. again, his natural leadership ability it's it's You know he he's gotTa bring guys along with him. You know. This is why I think it's important for us to give Ben. A hard time all year long let's pick up think against them to let's make him think nobody thinks he can do it lasts constantly remind him as he tunes into this program. To Walt you're over the hill who all ban. Your Armageddon off. You can't do it on to the next guy. You know seventeen year vet working on his foot work for example, That's all in right i. just wish Vance McDonald would have said that Rothlisberger leadership is having a ripple effect rather than it's contagious. Sure. Yes. semantics. Important. Words. But didn't get the impression that Ben Rothlisberger had a lot of the Mario lemieux work ethic when he was younger in in terms of like, no no. The fries. Yeah. You just had so much talent that he didn't have to work as hard as anybody else is free and then yes. Yeah. Total Freak and he just you know had. Incredible athletic ability and. As he got a little bit older, he found out that he. Probably start working in a little bit harder on this, and that goes one of two ways either the guy who liked see Sabbah's out or you're like, no, you know what I'm going to bust my ass and he's really Bared down after that last injury and injury that a lot of people might have gone I'm old I'm not gonNa work. Super Hard. Right, now I got enough money I'm done. It's going to be too hard to come back for maybe a year or two years. But he's clearly intent on it being more than that. He saw forty two year old Tom Brady last night I mean sure I mean is members getting a little foggy any forgotten who was fourth down but other than that they're pretty Kick out the floor anymore. You gotta that kind of leadership from somewhere you're going to be a successful team. Put this it really helps in most instances if you have that kind of leadership somewhere to become a successful team to get it from the quarterback position according to Vance. McDonald, that is particularly critical. Obviously, his position being quarterback and stuff to See it's even as even more weight because you know there's always a a a sort of. Leadership role that are quarterback has to to maintain on any team. Just, because of the position of so we we are very fortunate to have a player like band leader like on us that's carrying US season. He's coming from. Appreciate where he's coming from but I wish you wouldn't said Ben has more weight I. Don't think that's where you WANNA go. That is great. Stuff bads McDonald's. When But he wants to let it rip he lets rip and it is compelling. Does look like the eagles going to have either one of their veteran wide receivers, all Sean Jeffrey or to Sean Jackson. Dave of EAGLES DOT COM joined the on steals pre last night on TV and said, he doesn't expect either one of those guys to play. That is a critical loss for Philadelphia because got mention one more time you know silver linings playbook established for us all that the Sean Jackson is the man a player. So good you could wear he's Jersey to a dinner. A Dinner Party and get away with it or not Really hits there's a lot of people that fit that description. Right. Tire. Does look like Marcus Allen or Derek, or going to play for the steelers tight spills game. That was supposed to be this. Sunday has been rescheduled for Tuesday at six o'clock. Make men announced yesterday this is all more covert fallout from Tennessee. Meanwhile, Buffalo's week six game against Kansas City has now been tentatively rescheduled for Sunday October. The eight teeth that was supposed to be on the prior Thursday if the bills and titans can't play, then the chiefs is going to move there. Moved to Sunday game back to Thursday. It really is a wake up and get the lay of the land and see what you gotTa do to make to tomorrow kind of environment that we're all in the NFL in particular Tom Brady and buccaneers lost to the Chicago Bears Twenty, two, nineteen last night Tampa Bay trying to drive late against the clock and the bears defense for a winning field goal and Tom Brady apparently forgot it was four thousand through a deep ball on four thousand Instead of just picking up the first down, he tried to get a chunk and it didn't work. And Boy Did they have issues blocking Khalil Mack. Yes. Man. RECOG- game. They can recog- game and. steelers got a bunch. They're they're gonNA face some on Sunday from Philadelphia as well unlike the eagles the steelers have been there done that offensive lineman bill to actually try to get those guys way once in a while. Did you guys see last night a couple of times Khalil. Mack now listen I love TJ and bud and I, think both great and I think is strong and I think TJ has an incredible technique but the raw strength of Amac he. Threw a three hundred and forty pound man around like rag doll them a couple of different times. He was he got to Brady from both sides. He was unblock -able for almost half the snaps at seen white mean Brady was under duress. To lasting impressions at one of the place. I think you're referencing. Khalil mack got the sack and Tristan wharfs was trying to still block them through the sack. And Slam. Worse to the ground to got both guys two for one normally got to pay double for that kind of action cotton and there was another sack we're brady was on the ground and their heads were in close proximity and Brady just looked at staring at him and any kind. Of Cut Aroldis lies like you again. Well, she's just getting a hot on I mean. I was I was dominating performance and that's what. I think you can see a lot of that Sunday guys I really do. Try not to oversimplify things a break in these games down but I just don't see how the Eagles are going to block the steelers. This Sunday, the broadcast, of course. One o'clock kick-off, we start things off four hours before kickoff off here on your radio home of the steelers and I always used to talk about the triumvirate of broadcasting here on DVD, which included Bill Hillgrove Craig, willfully, and of course, touch Elkin.

Okay, microphone has got your sports right now on the DVD morning show Mike what's up Sports is out brought to you by Bridge Ville appliance. Let's pick up where we left off last hours it relates to Vance McDonald and the frustration he was expressing regarding everything that happened to the steelers last week they thought they were having a game weak and it turned into a bye week. Ben Rothlisberger went public with the steelers frustration. When he said they got the short end of the stick and McDonald confirmed among other things that Rothlisberger is not the only steelers player. Who feels that way that frustration? McDonald went on to explain. Is related to the search for middle ground between Oh, well, hey, it's covert. What can you do and a fair and equitable level playing field for all? Here's a very passionate fans McDonald addressing that. It's all about that fair that fair Plainfield, and until that is established and figured out like I feel like we're just we're moving through this with blinders on and obviously like we're going to have to do that to some degree throughout this whole journey but that doesn't mean that we dislike. To say, all right well, whatever happens happens like this got to be some sort of of foundation that we can come back to as a league that establishes fair play and so when one team kind of like as you missed titans and again I'm not saying that we know all the details or whatever. But if one teams blunders, other teams just like misfortune. How been mentioned like felt like we got the short the stick yeah. I, feel that I feel the same way..

"So let's see. Let's go ahead and jump into the topic here. I'm just GonNa do some things and if we have some time since it's just me maybe I'll even turn over to the live chat specifically about this topic as we go through players. We're going to the second draft pick of the Pittsburgh steelers which was a third round draft selection once again. This is going to be pretty interesting. For the steelers steeler fans last year the Johnson was a third round draft. Pick but for a lot of steeler fans. He felt like a second round draft pick because he was the second player they took. Alex Highsmith I mean he was a third round draft pick was if round draft pick. He was a third round compensatory draft. Pick the steelers. Didn't have their third round pick because it was part of the Devon Bush trade and of course he didn't have their first round draft pick because their first round draft pick is Minka Fitzpatrick so they they drafted Alex Smith. Now I what I wanted to have time. I didn't have time to go back and listen to it. I'm fairly certain it might not have been specifically for the show. It might have been one of the other times that because I saw his name several times that he might have been one of the players available when we did. Our mock draft on the steelers. Qna the Tuesday before the draft in the third round. I always kind of dismissed him. Because I don't like to take fliers on small school guys that I don't know about love it when the steelers do 'cause I know they've done their homework way more than me. So if the steelers like a small school guy that Kinda like that kind of gets me to like him even more. I try not to fall in love with a small school guys. Just because of the question marks and I don't trust my judgment As much as I do the steelers. So that's that's what's going on. He has the third round draft pick just before the fourth round started Alexai Smith out of UNC Charlotte or when they just call them when they announced stuff they say Charlotte anymore hasn't been hasn't had a football program for that long. They were in the. Let's see what did they start? What was it twenty thirteen. Maybe I think they started a football program at the school they were. Fcs For a couple years and then bumped up to BS. They're part of conference USA. And that's the biggest knock on highsmith that that people don't understand or don't know how it's going to translate to the. Nfl was he was A. He's from a smaller conference. But the steelers small conference guys especially the Mac and he had a lot of production but he was walking was even scholarship player to start So that's that's pretty interesting here assisted from his last year of college. And those are the most important so I'm just going to go with that. He had seventy five tackles fifteen sacks like a lot of people have been reminding steeler financial twitter. It's only two sacks less than second overall pick J Xiang out of Ohio state now granted. There's a big difference between Ohio state and and and Charlotte but also at the same time when you're playing for big school like Ohio State. You can't really focus in on one great player. 'cause you usually have multiple great players on the defense where? Highsmith was definitely the cream of the crop at his school. He had twenty one and a half tackles for loss three passes defense and two forced fumbles so that was his stats last year. So in order to figure out what we can expect for in this year it really comes down to what is his role and his role coming in is exactly why. I wrote an article before the draft and said steeler fans need to be prepared for the for the steelers. Drafting a linebacker early in the draft. I felt that the steelers would address either the inside or the outside linebacker on day two of the draft. They didn't have a day pick had to pick Sunday to. I'm like so many people thought to see if they're going offense offense offense I I was. I'm like I wouldn't have even been shocked that they would use their first their first pick the draft on defense for those positions. I liked the way things played out. I liked the way that they did that to get get a China. New Wide Receivers. Some people like to say that brings different elements to the steelers that they don't have another wide receiver so then they turn around and they took the outside linebacker. The case I was making was inside. Linebacker really needs some depth. They haven't replaced Mark Barron and all the snaps he took. I know Vince Williams will will play more snaps this year than last year. Yuji three lots of promise. I really like him but he has zero defensive snaps in the NFL. So you've got so. I wouldn't have been surprised that they would have also added another higher pedigree which means draft pedigree guy that they got for this year. They instead they did. The other option that I said was and it was probably based on what players were available and that was. Don't be surprised for an outside linebacker. Because you released Anthony Gigolo. Who was your main reserve? Your other two reserves are undrafted free agents to czar. Skipper has zero defensive snaps with the steelers zero snaps buried with steelers in the regular season and Olas is limited so as much as we like them and we saw a lot from them in preseason. We still don't know what we have with them. And the other reason it was wise to where wise if they wanted to. Use High draft capital on an outside linebacker. Was that if you cannot work out a reasonable long term contract with bud pre. This may be his last year in the black and gold if you draft a guy this year and have an idea of what he brings. Now you don't have that helps you answer a little bit more for next draft year next offseason in two thousand and twenty one because you would know what you have in. Highsmith a assuming that you know. He doesn't have any other problems in plays a full season and all that other stuff. That's just kind of understood so you know what you have you know if you have the potential to have someone that could be your be your long-term answer there's a starter or if you know that it's not working out then you know you have to address tight. Invest High draft capital or free agent at that position as well next year so this was a great year especially right when they did it in the third row. I think it was. It was pretty wise with what they did. I think if there was a different insider outside linebacker that would have dropped the steelers at forty nine. They might have pulled the trigger there. It's hard to say we never know. I mean as much as I like both Ola. We they still are announced so if advertisement is been called in to replace Anthony Cicchillo right now. You already got way better draft pedigree than anybody that was filling that role in last year in last year. Or even before if you look at the steelers. Last year of their reserve outside linebacker there were three players played snaps for the steelers act at the outside linebacker position. Gigolo missed five games. He'll eleven games. He had nineteen tackles a half sack. Fumble forced fumbles or anything. Any played a hundred and forty-three snaps. Then you had J. Ron Elliott. Who was brought in for the steelers? He played in five games. He had four tackles on twenty. Two snaps I walk in ancient tree branches to climb up a scoop. Pk K Zero Island haunted. By where all the answers are. Why welcome to the island of explain where we answer kid figures questions about what's going on right now? I can't be gotree scores and not do things that we have.

"Wow. I love it when you got love it. I love it. Jeff when you got anything else now. That's it for now that it it's GonNa come back. I've sure because the ravens have fifty pigs in the straps though sermon in he lets you know when the good reverend how when he does see is late. Late in the east goes is like midnight. Instant next day actually is Friday for me. It's Saturday you for the Good Reverend Dr Hartman. His call to alter steeler fans. It's a call to alter. And I like Shaw McMahon. I can't agree with that entirely. But I'd like to send him it and I think when Ben Rothlisberger back by Biggby B and we're you know we're anticipate Dan Rothlisberger is going to come back and be who he is and we've been rothlisberger in a fold. It changes everything. Everything changed is that that's a very different football team. But Jeff Man. I love it when you go. Reverend Dr Heart Yes right I. It doesn't happen often doesn't happen often but I'm sorry there are sometimes I just can't take it I can't take it I'm sued. We're we're still fan. That's people need to remember. Were still fans. I'm not I'm not paid by the steelers. Okay I'm here to give my opinion on what I think and I I'll tell you what I trust. I trust the steelers I do. They haven't given me a lot of reasons to not trust them if they're going to spend a third round pick on this guy. Did they see something that I don't guess why because I haven't seen anything this guy I know who he is just because I knew? Jk Dobbins is because he played. That guy fell for a reason. Saying I love. I Love Rodney Lyles. Pass a Hartman. That's how you sell it a s Hartman has a Hartman Reverend Dr Pasa Hartman. I love it. I Love Jeff. I love when when when my inner she passes to you and you can save everything that I'd like to say it. I could be the good guy that does not have to be the hater. I love it when we can switch hats so good. My my sentiment wasn't hating. My sentiment was just frustration frustration with the fan base that some kind sometimes can be so spoiled in so fickle at the same time. I don't get it. It's let's see all plays out but to see how it plays out. There were people last year last year. Sutton Smith everyone was like. This guy is going to be the next. James Harrison didn't make the team his Smith who exactly who asked the traditional Pittsburgh man. I love it. We're not draft guys. But I love it in Pittsburgh and I love that about fan bases in the national football league is everybody gets so excited about the unknown and it just gives you hope and gives you something to look forward to but you know fortunately I mean probably still consider these guys get a love. I'll let you read that. You Mama Dali Says Jeffs Twenty. Six kids are scared in a corner and now my kids are all asleep and that didn't wake them up either. I was wondering across the House hoping it didn't need it. So my son still asleep but still hey the st would make the pick. I trust the steelers and We'll see here. We go to a tip jar. From Jay's do you think makeup we'll separate himself even more yes a year in the system year with Terrell Edmonds basically. I think he's taking steps forward. And you might say is that even look like it's GonNa look amazing is what it's GonNa look light. You know so. I think that you know. I don't see a big shoutout to Muhammad out. I don't know if he's celebrating. Ramadan but You know happy Ramadan him. If he's celebrating Ramadan so happy Ramadan to him. But Yeah I think you know the and that's the one thing is would mean Mingka's divest pick in the first round so the steelers draft is already excellent. They've got the best player in the first round. It's make fitzpatrick with eighteen taken draft. And he's only GonNa get better. Ben Rothlisberger changes all of this And so you do have to be more positive did I typically am And some of this. You have to look at it in terms of you know the position groups to try to replace bolster and look at the roster and what you think it'll look like in twenty twenty one you know we think that this pick is probably but debris the place replacement but what will happen next year is if he doesn't play well they'll draft another guy that's what the NFL is and you know nobody will remember this guy. He'll be on a rookie contract and that'll be it. Well you know the funny thing is are people looking at. The browns picks and the Ravens picks a man look at their traffic. So maybe people aren't looking at Pittsburgh and saying Oh man I can't believe their draft. That looks great. You know what? Let him overlook them because in my lifetime when the steelers are not the favor team when the steelers are the underdogs on the steelers are the no one's giving them a chance that's typically in my opinion when they play their best. So that's Mike. Tomlin loved the play that card and he loves to play that card. He lives off that Card Reverend. The good reverend is hot. That's the call to alter when he's calling you to all Altered to confess your sports sins so if you have a confession to make before we conclude the program please make the altar call in confess your sports particularly your Pittsburgh steelers. Sports in just confessed it. You didn't think that the steelers were going to win that big game and they did. I know all of you guys have some guilt out there. You thought they were GONNA lose to this team. But they didn't and they actually won. You thought they were going to lose to the Patriots couple of years ago. And what are they do? Joe Haden gets the interceptions you could feel guilty. And the Reverend Good Dr Jeff. Hartmann is trying to let you relieve all of that. Get it out I got it out. I'm good I'm good so we have a lot of we. We have a lot of shows coming up. I don't know of Lance will be with us tomorrow on Saturday but you. I'm hoping to have a similar four. I'm here and I like. I like eye opener having a similar format today tomorrow Saturday that we had today day two and I really like how Bryan and Dave came on prior to the pick they then went into. You know who could be available? They said the pig lance and I maybe someone else came back on. What's so funny lands. We laugh at Mohammed. Ali said I have a confession to make. I thought already writing. You got that off your chest you you let me give you. Let me give you a confession that I have for the steelers. I thought the steelers would never win a world championship would bill cower as the head coach after watching them lose. F. Championship Games in every which way but loose and never thought they would win a championship with Bill. Cowher as the coach I was absolutely done. I was just events if they got to the AFC championship game. Somehow he would figure out a way to lose the game in after they lost to the Patriots. O-on I was in the dumps at just had no faith no belief that the Chin would bring them to a ring. Yeah he did and he did here. We go Jon. Trott will give them more in here. He says pursued dollars in tips are thank you very much for your contributions. He's what are the Chances Ulysses Gobert the third takes William Spot. I don't think he takes his. I think he could still be is. He is very athletic. He is very fast when he's healthy and he's read. I read an article recently about him. Re having his back he should be good to go for. Twenty twenty maybe. He's that special sub package linebacker that they would put in there if they take Williams off the field so maybe they have in house will see. No one really knows so there you go. The ears with him is that the young man is extremely athletic. Yes yes so. Hey fingers crossed maybe again. This is a situation like Brian talked about the beginning of the show. The steelers are up to date with his Rehab. They know what he can do. They've seen him in practices. They they've met with him. He's been in their system for a whole year so they don't take an inside linebacker maybe is because they say well. We don't really need inside linebacker because we have. Us's Gilbert we really like him we think he could be that guy for us. Those are things that were not privy to fat so they agree with Darwin Nolan. There was no way that the steelers could have beaten in two thousand one eight hundred team. They were cheating. I'll never forget that as his quote APP Today. Game where he did. It's like they knew the plays before we even random them and they did know the back so you want me to close it out Jeff. Yeah let's close it out. It's been a day. We'll we'll see everyone back here tomorrow and is always tune in tele friend and subscribe go steeler nation Amen. We'll see you tomorrow..

"No no no. All right. Grades are coming in a lot of C C plus bb plus a BS and people were saying a lot of upside to the grading on that. That's Fine D plus no APPS. I'm shocked there isn't anyone that's given a failing grade yet. See you see we got a pirate with Kyle. Smith Says Kyle Smith says let's be honest. No one here actually knows. I Love Bliss. Deathly I love Blake literal and I that his last name is literal and he gave it any plus we gotTA FM there. We've got a great in their ads. After I said here we go. Snowman puts five dollars tip jars. What's the next pick for the steelers? He's referring today three. They have two fourth round picks. No fifth round picks a six hundred thousand. So they don't make trays. They're going to end up with six new players that's it. So what do you think that you next lance? I'll think they gotta go inside linebacker. They have no depth that that position. I think they've gotta go inside linebacker and honestly. I think they've gotta go. I gotta go line. They're not young at that position. I loved the acquisition of Wisdom Sqi. But that's an old offensive line. I think they've got to get more athletic in the interior of that offensive line. But I think they've gotTA GET OUT I. I think they've got to get inside linebacker and safety. I think they've got to get some equality depth on defense when you look at the top eleven and you compare that defense across the National Football League top eleven. I mean they're they're as talented as gets will they have like seven eight earth round draft picks on? Defense? I mean they're loaded top eleven but man if days If they if they have some injuries there's some significant issues but I don't rule out the fact that they buy go out and get a free agent or two as well. They have to build the depth on that defense. So I'm looking at defense In his next couple of rounds yet it's going to be interesting offensive. Line is definitely a need safety. I agree with you inside linebacker. I agree with you inside linebacker though you said might be an area where they go the free agent route Kathy puts to WHO's left for the offensive line. I think the steelers are in my opinion proven. It can still find some pretty good offensive lineman later in the later Rounds Day. Three obviously where? We're looking at now Do I have specific players in mind? Not a specific player but to the fact that they're gonNA look for position flexibility. They're gonNA look for a guy that can play center and guard. I mean they're gonNA look for guys that can play a variety of positions if they take a tackle they're going to think that tax could play tackle and guard. They're looking at bill depth in youth in that offense of mine. The offense of mine has to get better you know during this Quarantining in staying at home sheltering in place. I've been watching a ton of runs naps. And it's just frustrating to see how ineffective they are running inside zone in just how much of an upgrade at the guard position they needed. What Ramon Foster? And how Ramon fosters lack of athleticism really impacted them in the run game so they needed injection of you there if they can find a bridge for when. Markey'S POUNCEY retires because Mark Markey's penalty is going to retire soon. He said that he does not WANNA play after. Ben Rothlisberger retires. You know. Correct me if I'm wrong. Jeff Pouncey is about year nine. Close the year ten penalties. Been there awhile well. He's a rookie in the two thousand ten season When we went to the Super Bowl when he got injured and didn't get to play and seibel forty five so yes. He began helping his ten season. I mean that offensive line is not young so whoever they take it. It's GONNA BE POSITION FLEXIBILITY. Think of a bj. Finney type guy that can play bogart spots or center spot think of a filer that could play a tackle orchid bump into guard. Think of a guy that can play multiple positions. Because you know they've got to inject some youth into that offensive line but I think they're going inside linebacker. Yeah I don't know it'll be interesting to see how they play this out. And if they make any trades that with my bold prediction was that they were GonNa make laundry. I was really expecting to be honest with you. I was expecting them to trade that trade their third round pick move back and acquire some more graphics but instead they go with hightower from Charlotte outside linebacker. Not a very well known player. But I'm sure we'll learn more about him in the coming days and weeks now a lot of this. Why love and I love and I hate this about the draft. You love it because everyone's there everyone's focus on it. Oh you know we had over two hundred thousand people view the site today because they're excited for the steelers to make a pig but at the same time you have that love the pick writer needed hated this. This is horrible lands in your opinion. How long do you have to? How long do you have to give a rookie class or a rookie player until you think you can give them an honest judgment of what they're able to do. I'M GONNA say three seasons if you're absolutely it'll show prior to that where if you're Juju type or if you're marquees county type or a Tj what you're Tj Water Benoit's been rothlisberger like it'll show earlier than that. But I think three years is the appropriate time in an evaluation because think of it this way the CVA says three years to CVA says three years we're GONNA contractually. We're going to agree as a players union and the League. That three years is enough. Time to evaluate a player before you give a player a long term contract. So I'M GONNA agree with that. I think it's three years. I think anything sooner than that is a little premature. So you know. But patience isn't part of steeler nation. It's not part of any nation in any national football league. Weather's only one team that has a nation and that actually steeler universe. Everyone else has nations. It's no steeler galaxy asked three years I think is the appropriate amount of time to evaluate a draft pick and Ginette means one. Terrell Edmonds is going into that critical year. But I'm being called out by Reginald rivers who said Lance. You gave a point now after one season. Well Hi Paul Direct foot. Let's just say this. Here's my hobby at. You should take three years to evaluate but sometimes there are certain physical traits would stand out. More all is to give these analogies. You're going out with a young lady and she hits on your best friend. Are you going to give her three months? Are you gonNA kick her to curb after that date Marconi? Oh my goodness I didn't have any snow is hitting on someone else's friend anyways. Some people suggesting possibility of bringing mark Barron back ETA cheaper price. He's been on the free market. No one has signed him. Would you be interested Nat considering you said that inside Linebacker is dire? I agree with you one hundred percent. I think it is no objections. Their snowman is giving me the business given up Lance Just because I save three years. I'm trying to clean up for myself just because I saved three phase saving plan. What is Mike Tomlin say about the? Nfl what does the NFL? It's moving strain right. Is trying to jump onto the moving train right? Just because I say three years does not mean you're GONNA get three years and so you have to prove it as soon as you can. And so you have to make an impression coaches in games in practice immediately and I would love. Barron came back. He knows that defense if you can get him back on the cheap it adds depth the inside linebacker position and he can play inside Pakistan defense. So this is something I wanted to bring up anyways in. These shows are not gonna be as long as our typical shows but someone asked the question Jeff how big is the gap between the Ravens and the steelers? Now let me first start off by saying that in two thousand nineteen even without Ben Rothlisberger. I don't think the gap was as far as people might believe Think back to week five when they took the game to overtime and probably should have won that game. I think we've stages they've been played in that game. Hacky Mason Rudolph plays in that entire game. That was a game. He left the concussion win that football nonetheless they don't and Here we are. Ravens seemed to pick every other time. I look at the television. They it's Ravens or picking. I mean they've gotten a million compensatory picks so what are your thoughts on that in terms of the gap between the steelers and the Baltimore. Ravens will you know? I'll take every opportunity to knock the Cincinnati Bengals so I think the gap between the steelers and the Ravens is about the length of one of Joe Boroughs fingers and since he has small hands. The gap is it very big. I don't think the gap is huge If you look at the first game that they play like Jeff said once they get at Cana acclimated to what Baltimore was trying to do offensively. They really beat up. Lamar Jax Before that playoff game against Tennessee I thought they played Lamar Jackson better than almost any defense in the national football league. They were right there in that game the corner from Baltimore made a fantastic play. Causign the fumble with Juju. But they were right there in that game and I don't think I don't think the gap is great. I think they just have more depth at certain positions in the steelers. But I think the steelers still defense is better. Their offense has better but I think with Big Ben backed by being. I think the gap was really closed between the two teams but I would say all slightly better. Cayden puts a dollar ninety nine in the tip jar. Appreciate that he says. I think that steelers should go after four net and we talked about that in the last show and I think that'd be a good move. I KINDA WANNA go off on a tangent and a little bit. It's tied to this Baltimore sealers. Okay everyone that. Everyone of the steelers picks there are people that are say horrible. Pick the wasted pick. It was it was. This was that it was the other whatever that was an all these steeler fans May. Where's your pride? Okay I'M GONNA say these names. Maybe I should commenting ravens easily. Beat us the Ravens easily in the draft so far queens a monster. J. Cable run with a chip on his shoulder because he passed him. He says even gets the football that much. I mean there is Mark Ingram there unless they cut him at didn't know about it. You're wrong lands. The Ravens are killing us with young talent ravens ownership so pissed off the early exit lighting a fire under people with all the sun. Come on people you are killing me. Wailing me you forgetting that the Pittsburgh steelers have an easy lead. I will say it again in the lead defense elite even without even without this third round. Pick okay elite. Every not looked talked about the improvements on the offense. Yeah you WANNA talk about guard okay. Move filer to guard. If you have to. You can still probably get a tackle or you have some tackles. That are some people like the tackles of the have. We just talked earlier on the show about after the draft Chase Clayton while they have a legit four wide receivers now not dimension there too tight ends in yes running backs we know that the history there but come on fans what is going on and when you are sitting there saying Whoa is me. The Ravens are so good look at their Come on I live in Maryland people. I have to deal with these idiots. Every single day of my life do not fold up like a cheap launch hair. And just say well. It's been fun. Good Luck Ravens. In Twenty Twenty on columnist one season. No no no no. The steelers will be fine. If Ben Rothlisberger is fine period period added Reverend Dr Heart. I'm sorry I'm sorry. I'm sorry I'm sorry I can't I live here. Ideal these morons every day. I can't stand when steeler fans act like this and they act like willows me.

"alex highsmith" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"Steelers MAKE THEIR SECOND. Pick the day to twenty twenty. Nfl draft third round. They take outside linebacker. Alex highsmith talks Charlotte. And if you're like me you said who who who Pass rusher laterano leads. Williams is with me. Here is always the joining us now. Not Scofield but Brian. Anthony Davis Brian. What's going on and got the big board here I've got. I've got draft fever still and I'm loving this Alex Smith. Pick because here's the thing last year in the third round we got a Lotta whose when we picked the day Johnson through the Pittsburgh steelers so I subscribed to the fact that they know a whole heck of a lot more than I do. Yes okay so Moore's okay with the tag you're okay with the heck that doesn't mean that you necessarily liked it well here. Here's my thought on this. I was high on Bradley and I and I figured that would be the guy that they'd be looking at. I knew they were going outside. Linebacker edge rusher with this pick and the resigned. Knew they were going to do. That is because they've got a lot to choose from on offensive line Pretty early in round four and they've got an opportunity to get a defensive tackle or maybe safety around for so I'm thinking you need to address. Edge rusher right here and there's a couple of guys out there but with Bradley and I being the best one where they kind of like this guy a whole lot more than Bradley. I just because I haven't heard of doesn't mean that he's not good in twenty one tackles for loss and fourteen sacks are pretty sexy than me. Yeah and I I did see on. Espn when they made the pick that they quoted some clemson offense Lineman who said that he was one of the most difficult defensive players to block. They played all season. Now I don't know you can take that for what it's worth glands. What were your thoughts on the? We'll let me just read. CanNot can I read his strengths and weaknesses from the draft guide? And I'm looking at to give some background. It says he rushes low in quick getting underneath blockers and forcing them to overset introduces hips into the rush plan. Using subtle movements to get blockers moving introduced more pass rush moves as a singer. Year progressed punches. Low to high in an upward motion to work off bodies and find the football revving. Motor verse to Run. Us dealing with chippers. An extra attention looks comfortable in his feet when asked to drop instead of rush former walk on who is motivated and self made. Let me give you some more of his. Twenty nineteen stats. Seventy five tackles twenty one and a half tackles for loss fourteen sacks one forced fumbles three pass defense. Let me give you his weaknesses. And this is according to Dame brute where of the athletic cut up and takes care of his body but framing lanes aren't ideal for NFL Work can get lost in the washes. An edge defender needs to better see through. Blocks the line of scrimmage tends to flow with the action it abandoned his gap instead of reading. The backfield moved to move counter sequence in his rush requires maturing snap. Anticipation needs maturing. With four offside penalties in two thousand nineteen ago. That's the breakdown I I don't know if you were to stay like a gate if you heard of this player from the SEC. You're like yeah. I I think I've heard that guy might have seen him play at some point in time during a random Saturday that sat down to watch of five minutes of college football. I did not see Charlotte play at all this year. I did not know or they no no no. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I never saw. I never saw the Charlotte. Hornets let alone. Charlotte's football team. Nineteen seventy lance when you were watching the watching a southern university. Do you remember watching mail blond though not in nineteen seventy because I probably about six months of age? But your to your point. Their job is to Scout. Their job is to find these. Yeah absolutely. That's what I Appel. Everybody on the last show outing departments. It's a narrative pick in what day was saying as a lot of times you can their narratives that are out there when it comes to picks clearly. They're looking for depth at the position in another edge. Rusher so of this guy pans out he could potentially be but debris used to place a replacement because from a CAP perspective. There's different maneuvers. You can do with the captain. Get Space. Tj. Watch going to be the most expensive player in National Football League defensive side of football he is going to be the highest paid player. So do you want to allocate that much cap space to the outside linebacker position? Hopefully if this kid pans out you may not have to the other thing with Dupree. Probably gone he's going to have a chance to take that number three spot in audition for the job next year. He's he would be the man and waiting right away over Ola. Over to czar skipper to get that job if he can shine. I like it. Let me let me let me just say that. I never said like I said I didn't know the player and I don't know a lot of these players so that's nothing new. There's only one pick that I can remember that I I said on air to anyone listening. What a stupid pick and that would be a six round long snapper from the Louisville. How Ola Alba? Yeah slave select snapping and six I. I thought I was going to. They did what they told you. That the only time that I can remember in recent memory me saying I can't stand that pick and that was just because of the position had mighty who call in Hobo was But at the same time. I'm with you Brian. I trust this team. I trust this organization. I trust the Scouting Department to do the job to get. That did have that inside information to go after a guy from Charlotte that no one else has heard of So it'll be interesting to see. Paints Brian but I know you said you got to go. You have some work to do before you leave. I want to get your thoughts on their second round. Pick their first pick of the draft that each as playful where you a fan of that selection or not. Oh Canada's all I've got to say I am loving this guy and I tell you what is your day was putting on the spot. He's like thumbs up thumbs down. I said look any find out so I'm GONNA go like this. I think there was pointing up. Give me some time is like all right. We're GONNA bust on you like. He has bus on me with Dante. Johnson. Like No. You've gotta give me a second. I'm not saying this is bad. All I WANNA do is no a little bit more everything I looked at fell in love with this guy right away. I'm already thinking of that number. Eighty Three Jersey with Klay poll on the back. Because that's what this guy is going to be wearing. And the he is going to be a special player six four with that speed two-thirty and a speed of a four point four two and what I saw on tape on him fantastic. So I'm really excited and the entire time we were talking. I'm watching on the loop. Alex Highsmith here this dealers put out a tweet or something and I just clicked on it. It's him on a loop. It's not lackluster stuff. He really gets penetration and gets in there. You gotta knows it's not he doesn't get eaten up so I'm really excited about both picks so anybody that hates this pick so much. Don't wear the Jersey in three years when he's awesome and what will but what what number. What number did you pick Brian? He's always good for this. What did you say three eighty three? I don't think any why isn't why receiving niece number mainly wears eighty three now and it's I mean it's a it's been a couple years in Ben. Does that crap like gentry? Last year. Eighty three shot. You know angst. Let me give you some egghead stuff that you guys will find probably pretty boring. Just get stuff from watching film when guys were eighty three in their defensive guys. It's really hard to watch field because certain numbers you having your head that those are offense of guys he's talking about clay's not talking about talking about okay. Wide Receiver Klay. Full were eighty three. It'd be like man. I don't think I don't think I don't think in the NFL you can is outside linebacker. Where like in eighty three? Oh I wish I wish it was like college. And you can have a kicker where in sixty four just like. We're the number. You would aware it's really bad film though. I get really take you like five. Let's take a few plays to go because you see certain numbers so you just look at the position group so if you see like sixty four you're just looking defense of my whole life. You're not looking at anything else. But then when sixty four if like a sixty four was a corner you just be completely confused did it. The steelers have a quarterback that were twenty two probably in ninety one lane. Bobby twenty two okay. I was GonNa say Dick Shiner. Maybe him probably would. They were the only. That's an actual player by the quarterback for for Chuck Knoll. Yeah China's an actual Pittsburgh steelers player. You can look it up on. Not just being funny. That's his name Frank. Web is made up player. I've made it up here. Is there's a Ralph Webb? But I call him frank. Franklin lives was has been justice. Joe Seven puts ten dollars in the ninety nine and we appreciate that That but still before you go Bryan quick question. How does highsmith tie in with this? In my opinion when you're talking about training camp the out the deficit outside linebacker is going to be one to watch you have anyway. You have skipper in your Smith and those are to be behind. T. J. Watt and bud debris would I don't think they're gonNA keep all them so who's the odd man out to skippers? Probably the odd man out Broke the heart of steeler fans everywhere. You Know Yeah we love these guys and you know what one of the reasons we love these guys because Jeff we have so much. We have to write about so much. We have to talk about in June in work. Highlighting guys like who's our skipper. And Doc Hodges and we knew everything about those guys and the reason we knew everything about those guys before training camp because we had nothing else to talk about. So we're talking about these guys that had that had training minicamp tryout and made it through so what? I'm getting the all right landscape. I don't believe that don't believe bad listeners. He only likes skipper because of his last name. And it's a great last names of Gilligan's island that he's the skipper that's it. That's the only reason why likes you? Know we talked about this Guy Ad Nauseam because we we have to know the names of these guys and then we're we we go crazy at the end of August like this guy has to stick with the team. How could they cut him? Because I want to raise with Dante Spencer but at the end of the day were were crying over guy. The was the fifty fourth man on a fifty three man roster and couldn't stick around and keeps getting cut at the end of the day. That's not the guy you want starting for you not on C. Brian Thought you learned from me. I don't know many names and I get the wrong when I try to pronounce them so I don't know many names outside the starters and I get them wrong and I just came up with the Acronym Dash. Come on man. You guys gotta go dash. Just call those guys dash guys the guy very go. He's a dash he's a. He's fourth on the depth chart and to your question. Jeff you're always looking at in terms of the three pres pay Pedigree he doesn't have the pedigree and performance. None of those guys have the performance. And they're not paid very well so it falls down to pedigree you're gonNA air on the third round you're going give the third round. Pick the opportunity to prove which is the fourth p. That your evaluation is correct would is Jeff. Always say these guys do not want to be proven. And that's probably the fifty that they're wrong so they're going to give the drafting. The third rounder every opportunity to make them look and so I think you're right. I think skippers the odd man out because the pedigree just isn't high as well. I'm a ninety nine glad he's watching. Thanks Buddy I appreciate by some of your t shirts. Jeff printed up You might need you know I'm subscribing to the three learning Lance Lingo. So with that being said I'm going to go bone up on some lance lingo. Oh my gosh. You're killing me tonight. Brian with your euphemisms and everything. But let's get a great for me. Real quick highsmith grade. Would you give it? I'll give it a C plus all right. That's the best we can do. But I'm liking it all right thumbed up. I'm talking to you. Brian is able to talk to you tomorrow. All right we'll see you when you get a seventy five great jeff. That's enough to get a lecture from from from your mom when you own seventy five's not good. That's no desert. Some more people in the live chat here. I WanNa see what are what are the grades right now for the Highsmith? And don't give me the incomplete stuff you know like I'm a I'm a teacher okay. I don't want us to adds an incomplete because I don't know gotTa Give Great. You gotTA GIVE. A grade eight through. How're you grading it self segregate that now? We can't go distance learning okay. This is the Care Wacko..

"The defensive Lineman from university North Carolina. Charlotte really cool guy. Seems like he's got a good head on his shoulders James and My my tip of the cap to you might tip the CAP. The new era cap to you outs came to us. Courtesy not only James Clayton but of new ERA CAPS. Who is a sponsor of the program? Seems like he's got a good head on his shoulders. James Guy that really to me. It seems like he's he's continuing to develop in he's in ascending guy You know the the the town started to kind of seem to be mined out over the past year or two but it seems now that as he continues to learn nuances of the position he gets settled in a specific scheme he could be. I think probably a pretty productive at least rotational player initially for team. Yeah I agree I mean the truth in the stops and he came on as a wolf onto a small program unfinished redshirt senior. Who I think was the in socks in the whole of cold triple and obviously if you can keep that exponential growth than you have got Kinda gotTa Start and I think. He's young as well as the bengals needing net rotational at Russia. Hell especially young Don KNAPP getting on and I just think he's the character that someone like Taylor would ready go off the draw especially as he still continues to set. Yeah good good character. Kid Hike character kid from What what reports said in on the interesting things to me James last year the bengals dabbled a little bit with Sam Hubbard? Kind of doing different things. Yes he rushed the passer off Player set the edge but he also drop back in coverage a bit. This is where the bengals have. Since in this offseason flirted. Really since last offseason they flirted with rotational. Pass help whether it was Shaq Barrett whether it was Chris Smith who ended up going Carolina They were talking with Derek Wolfe. So they're looking for guys that can move around in different spots up front and get to the passer and do so regularly. This guy seems like he could be one of those guys at least initially. You still got dunlap. You Still Got Hubbard. But he's a guy that can move in there and maybe to a couple of things he needs to learn. Some nuance isn't developed a little bit. But there's you know four seven forty A lot to live with this kid. Hi athleticism it seems like High Q. I like I like this kid. Yeah I agree. I mean he's a guy that can rush the pulse very well and as you were saying with them now Liking Moving Hubbard. Inside on the downside. I think Guy Can come in week one and set the edge. Seems like a guy you know if you're wondering where he may end up in the draft James In is before we took the air You know he he may be seems like one of those round project type of guys because you know he's got first round type of tools first round athleticism but you know the small school thing Where where's fitting specifically day one on your defense? Some of those questions may have him. You know in those middle rounds which is good. Because that's where you build your roster. That's where you build the depth on your team. I feel you know I. I saw a recent seven around mach from Chad Ruder of NFL. Dot Com highsmith coincidentally went third round to the Ravens. Seems like a very ravens like player. You know one of those hybrid guys so he had him as high as the third round going to the Baltimore. Ravens there I think maybe you're looking more around around five. Potentially but you know maybe you said it. James overtook the air teams are looking for pass rush out even if it's rotational pass rush help it. I. That's where this kid can can help. If he as a rookie and is still developing can come in as rotational guy. Gets you five six sacks right away in his rookie year in a non starting role while helping out on? Special Teams Valuable Player. I agree I mean that's that's a lot of nuance and scouting. But this is a guy that got socks on the whole. Nfl teams like getting sacks. So yeah I I mean I think you'd gain rappaport said that because of the situation wherein get the media's getting it wrong in times of ranking place so it's up in the I could definitely see him going day to day team? Well we're going to get on. Outta here next to my special co hosts in show producer. James Clayton who is joining us from London. Thanks for setting up that interview for US and I. I know you've got some more things we won't we won't say yet because we don't want to over promise and under deliver type of thing and obviously some of these draft prospects not only have a lot to go going on this week but they also want they also. WanNa see where they end up to see? Maybe what appearances stuff they WANNA do but potentially you. You have reached out to some some folks and some of these folks that the bengals made draft could be coming on the program shortly after the draft. And I thank you for your work it you know. I wanted to bring you on. Usually we have a co host. John Sheeran wanted to give him a day off on a Sunday. But also I wanted to bring you on. Thank you for your work. You've done a lot of stuff behind the scenes and You know since you coordinated this interview I WanNa get you on here dot net. Thanks thanks for letting me on. It's it's been awesome. I mean I can.

"Or on your favorite podcasts. At you do not use the PODCAST APP right. Let a great question Jesse David Fox and I'm just curious. I'm sure this information might be might not have been revealed through these. These talks these meetings. But there's a lot of questions regarding what their schemes going to be like in two thousand twenty with the new defense coordinator. Mike Nolan Leon. Let's been there for years to serve a coach up to Defense Align. But did they kind of mention at all what they were looking at it? You know as you if they were looking at you what they'd be doing. Would it be more of a you know a kind of a neutral edge? Rusher can play out COMPLA- down the hand up down an rush. The passer was it more of A. Hey We wanna get you on the weak side and lets you rush the passer. No it wasn't any really coming back here. You know. I think that the other thing about this like you said Becker do because now sure we'll Koumegni that's awesome. That's good to hear. I love to get into your career arket. Charlotte going to a small school in Charlotte. That really making a name for yourself. It's really cool to see you come in as a walk on in your freshman year and I want you to start there. You the recruiting process for you. I'm sure you know with that in mind. Probably didn't go as planned for yourself. But you get you get Charlotte you walk onto Charlotte kind of take me through that first year of you coming to. Charlotte is a walk on and kind of which you had to do to earn your role on that team from there on out this little bit. Sorry Yeah I was just a you walk on your first year in Charlotte get there. I don't know how the recruiting process went for you. You get to Charlotte though. You're a walk on What did that process? Take for you to kind of go through that walk on year and then get to where you're at today. Just kinda start with that first year and walk us through your process of of Getting to where you're at today and your football career. It was that the The asked me how the other way that'd be that walk on copy so much had a great word forget the LBJ Greece Day. You know this is Learn about perseverance. You know Saturday the best that can be everything those things right. You know. It is walk on. You know it's actually has a candidate to the campus rushing years came on. I walked on this show it whatever I could They up to you know I registered here by scouts. Oh year I'm going to do whatever I can to help the of the guys on the First Team. It'd be better. You know actually gives me better to smoke because I was going to guys and that was the best team so that was good for sure. And then you know. They weren't offering that next spring logging number to get a lot Discrimination Industry which is five a lot paddison and stuff like that was good and which you know starting to Europe and worked my way up to spend your TV. No work my way up here to to a backup role played. That for most of the year started more game of the year. Not really a freshman Richard brushing talk. Where you're you know really kind of taking pride in that. Be The best that I could be. Totally take product specialty afford. It is because they lose game so Especially like it's interesting something that they really take pride in so I really put up a best. Lewis is for those team. That'd be a really strong grave all YEAR EVERY YEAR. And then eventually you know get that started rolling that had a good soggy seasons the season that others do. You all had a good season. So it's been it's been awesome dirty you know just Make you walk on instead. They know that. Walk out of the rest of my life. Everything that is on the field. But it's back and everything I do sure. Yeah that's a great great story here. Perseverance and determination to be great. It can definitely it shows up on the tape and and my question for you is. What do you feel like? It took for you to develop into the player you know you get on a walk on you gotta earn. Your role was at more of an athleticism development and more of a technique development that got you to where you're at or is it kind of just a combination of all those traits that finally came together in that junior year and able to take off in your senior year and be the most productive players in the country ever played never rest of the passenger got college back in high school. So go backwards. Something new for me like I've always had on thought athletic ability and that's the best techniques are really working on my technique. We're all GONNA pass here Really helped me and also watch the films. That was something that didn't do much fresher year. Doing that next was well also Tricia aspect. I got there. We got about fifty Bob my retrogression here but it was unhealthy. Knows I gave it. They gave what they call the freshman point. Whatever I want. You know. There's teach out to Kathy. You know he didn't really know that much about the tradition and then helped me to exercise. Science Mitchell got into this program. You know it's what he ain't never really help learn so much about the class and that's really helped me to change my body feel healthier and play better build so covered better too so that definitely helped me just really just bouncing the techniques again. Sure let's get to hear you talked about that cross shop a little bit earlier with with Leon. Light at the shrine game That's obviously one of your go-to moves it pops up on the tape you see it you use it consistently but you're also able to win with some speed on the outside you're also able to win with some you know swim. Move on the inside the F. C. You break that out as well. You're also really good defenders. Well which is kind of looked over a lot in today's game What other kind of technique pass rush moves? What other moves? Do you use to kind of set up offense lineman or what kind of moves do offense alive and use it you kind of set your moves up on them Throughout a game you know I gotTa have a pay going into that. I do you know there are longer second pass situation. I haven't planted across or two S in here. You know W waking auto pay for that you'll be spots in the have moved with that or taking my move to that so mix it up. Sometimes you know a working party speech. We begin the game engine in. Beverly opens up from us. Being the spending side so season that's powered a house to be displayed in that. So Y- just really having a plan before he passed really. How did I say You know wants to know what kind of said they do where they were. They have listened to hire whether it's just a thing. He came into the next level for sure man. Like I said that's evidence tape and then the other thing that was mentioned as you run game how. How important is that to you to just be able to not be a third down player being able to be on the field on first second down and then back on third down. It seems like you kind of take your run defense very seriously and it looks like that. You've really develop that aspect of your game throughout your career. Charlotte is that something you're also looking to Kinda show to the NFL teams that you can be a three down player. The next level. Yeah it is you know of seeing how reports about some teams. They have doubts about the game. You know you know what the answer to that is you have to go back and watch much eight. Fill up until three down I was playing a four. I forty five now. The good one loss we were at South County. Run run deep into the country that year. So there's really no really taking your wise really got to the next level in this ad known that Bachelors Name of Junior How way feeling most people will see a guy not two hundred. Sixty pails just assumes that. They're not a good defender. That seems to be the common thing. Nowadays Cooman. I appreciate the time again. You know it's really glad to have you talk to you One of the most productive pass rushers in the country. One of the most productive run defenders in the country had had really eye popping numbers senior year. And I think you're gonNA have a really cool draft process. It sounds like you have some meeting setup and it sounds like you got a really good Shrine Week. You had good combine. You've talked with a lot of teams so it sounds like the the future is bright for you. Alex and I appreciate you coming on and talking with us today. We're GONNA make him happy. Of course. This is Alex Highsmith Charlotte Edge rusher. A very productive had a great senior season Really really good pass rusher with a good good long tool belt. So he's one of the most productive guys in this draft really looking forward to studying his tape more and getting more information on. Alex throughout this process.

WanNa get into your combine when to get into the entire off season for you but first I wanted to start off with spent interesting. I'm sure Being a guy going into the NFL draft with all of the corona virus talk. It's kind of shutdown. Allow the pro days. A lot of thirty visits a lot of the meetings private workouts. How you been handling this whole offseason with that? That impact of the current virus never been saw not normal to going on shutting down the team workouts shutting down furnish down differently. You know Hand well you know had a better place to work out You know this past week. They close everything down in canvas. You know the past week before this happened before he was suspended working out at Charlotte and Do Answers you post show up in the morning with their we were doing.

I can't keep working hard what I've been doing so that BECO- now for big events betting on long I'll be back and forth. Shaw but actually can be all talk. Yeah no no doubt about it and have you been in contact with teams. That have kind of been like. Hey you know like we wanted to bring it on this visitor this private workout. But we're not going to be able to do that now. Has there been any discussions between you and teams on like how you're Kinda got a handle this the rest of this process since you aren't able to do a lot of those things Better two thirty business plan already originating you talk politics so that's GonNa be down with them Again this is something that with other teams do want to come out on top huckabee long often. These Kinda Kinda sucks you know this is. You can't be getting into making working working out. So He's you got that well so good for sharing it's nice to still see the teams are still having some sort of meetings or visit whatever you.
