Mendenhall to the Steelers at 23

With the 23rd overall pick

The Pittsburgh Steelers select…

Rashard Mendenhall, Running back, University of Illinois.

Mendenhall is 5’10” 225 lbs. and ran a 4.45 40-yard dash.

Just like the Dallas pick of Jones, this is a perfect fit. Mendenhall is a tough runner who can break off big runs and will be a perfect complement to Willie Parker who isn’t as good between the tackles. Mendenhall slipped a little in the first round and has great value at No. 23. I know Roethlisberger expressed his concern for getting a bigger WR but that can be addressed in the second round. Mendenhall will be great for Pittsburgh.
