As a Steeler fan I couldn't be more excited to be able to root for Cam on Sundays. Nice pick Steelers, and good luck Cam!

I'm a big Cam fan and I truly appreciate it that he stayed for his senior year. He exemplifies everything good about being a college athlete.

Maybe he can get a free "31" tattoo on his arm before he leaves C-bus.

As I gazed through the top 10 NFL picks, I noticed that the SEC had 5 of the Top 10 picks (4 of the top 5 picks) and I noticed that the Big 10 had NONE. In the first round, the SEC had 10 players drafted and the Big 10 had just 6 players drafted. This is just more proof on how much superior the SEC is than the Big Ten. The SEC players are better and of course the SEC has the best coaches in the country. Just the facts!

He fits right in with the Steelers. He's a hard worker and a good guy. Great pick.

As I gazed through the top 10 posts I noticed that Gator Gary was an idiot...Seriously dude, Cam Newton? Jamarcus Russell was also from the SEC.

My thoughts exactly. There was a post from a Carolina fan on ESPN that said they might as well call Carolina the Raiders East. Terrible front office, can't find a good coach, and draft an overhyped player that can't even remember his playbook. Not to mention has been at 3 different schools, has been in trouble with the law, and left his school hanging high and dry to run from his problems. He is a mess off the field, and won't be able to fit into a pro offense. He couldn't even give examples of his own playbook in an interview by Gruden. Carolina sunk their #1 pick into a QB to try and save the program...if they were going to do that they would have been better off with Gabbert.

The school that has the most players in the NFL is The Ohio State University. Google it.
Go Bucks. I think they're in the Big 10. Just the facts!!!

Been on the juice again haven't you Gary boy? There has to be a problem when you have to brag on a league rather than your own team. By the way, what's going on with the Gators these days???? Hasn't been an arrest now for at least 5 days.

Browns yet again miss a chance to take a Buckeye that would fit needs---reminds me of Winslow and Edwards (miami and misagin guys) watch and see who is more valuable in 3-years or even in the league.
Also, GAYTURD can' you figure out how to get on the SEC websites, great life you have...

Don't need to do better. Makes the point perfectly. Got you to comment, right? Must be hitting a sore spot and the truth. Poor Buckeyes.

I certainly hope that no one gets OUR Heyward mixed up with the, uh, well, uh, gentleman that the Panthers picked.
Our Heyward comes from 4 solid years of playing good football from a football family. That's why the Steelers chose him. Work ethics and experience.

News from down here does not make good reading and can be over looked. I tend to believe that after different meetings with the Panthers owner, yes there was different meetings with the Panthers owner, one gentleman drafted by them knows where he stands. Now, lets see what type of a man he is.

This is not a hate thing. Just the facts.

Yes, YOUR Heyward comes from a program that likely will have to forfeit wins from last season and one that has a coach who has been caught in more lies the past year than a 3-year-old. More facts for you.

Gaytor: 2 of the top 10 were from Mizzou (that perennial power house from the Big 12). The SEC has dominated and produces excellent football players, but there are good teams and players in every conference.

Your talking about a kid that lost his dad to cancer while he was in high school. A kid that is finishing up his degree. A kid with a great relationship with his mother. Taking a shot at him just shows how you feel about your own life.
