It is a natural habit to tend to forget about a player once he lands on injured reserve for a season. Out of sight, out of mind, as the saying goes. That is kind of how the rookie campaign went for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ fourth-round offensive tackle out of LSU a year ago. Jerald Hawkins was having an encouraging summer until he suffered a shoulder injury in the opening preseason game that sidelined him for the rest of the year.

But while he may have been out of sight, he was far from idle.

I thought Hawkins should have stayed in school one more year, so being on injured reserve is just his red shirt year so to speak. He has the look and athleticism of a LT with long arms and legs and is a solid in line blocker. The knock on him is that he doesn't have a thick base, so will he stand up to NFL bull rushes. Kind of reminds me of Jordan Gross in that regard, so will see if he can prove the naysayers wrong under Munchak.
