Congrats to Conner but we have to be careful as much as we want a Duke to shine on Sundays. Toney Clemons is a tremendous athlete. The Steeler coaches are raving about him and his availability at 7. He is 6'2" and although not has tall as Conner he is not a smurf so he may be the bigger guy. Height is only one factor. They can use one of their tight ends with height if need be. With the signing of Cotchery, Wallace and the youth of Sanders and Brown, only one spot really exists for a receiver. And don't forget about he kid from ALA, Maze. He may take Battles place as the 6th reciever, special teams guy. Conner has his work cut out for him. As much as we are pulling for him, the Steelers, as other teams, keep only a small percentage of their free agents. And they dont do favors. I dont remember but i dont think Conner ever played special teams. As talented as he is , he needs a little luck here even to make the practice squad. Godspeed to him.
