Devlin Hodges looks to impress Steelers Empty
PostSubject: Devlin Hodges looks to impress Steelers   Devlin Hodges looks to impress Steelers EmptyTue Jun 25, 2019 1:30 am

He’s one of the longest shots among the 91 men on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ training-camp roster to still be standing with the team by the start of the regular season. But Devlin Hodges has 14,584 reasons why he believes he can make the Steelers.

“As far as me feeling like I should be here, I definitely feel like it,” Hodges said from the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex earlier this month. “I have got that confidence.

“If you ask me, I think I should be No. 1 pick. I feel like everyone, if they are confident in themselves, that’s what they should think. I am a confident player; I know I have a lot of to learn. But I am excited to come out and … take each opportunity I have to show the coaches that I can play at this level.”

Perhaps if the NFL draft went solely by statistics, Hodges would indeed have been the No. 1 pick. The 2018 NCAA Division I leader in passing yards per game (389.4), Hodges wasn’t drafted, though. Worse, he wasn’t even signed as an undrafted free agent. Instead, the reigning Walter Payton Award winner as the top offensive player in D-I FCS had to settle for a tryout with the Steelers at the rookie minicamp.

Hodges impressed enough that May weekend that the Steelers signed him.

Here's to hoping this kid is some kind of stellar diamond-in-the-rough!

He could be the next Tom Brady. Minus the cheating. Devlin Hodges looks to impress Steelers 1797695198 That's 3 QBs behind Ben who have the potential to start. This is going to be some training camp.

I never write off the guys from FCS. Kurt Warner played his college ball at UNI and then he played for the Iowa Barnstormers in the AFL. Is Hodges Kurt Warner? At this point it's way, way too early to tell that, but Warner proved you can't write guys off just because they came from what many deem to be "lesser" competition.

I think we'll see a healthy competition come training camp. May the best man win.

Kurt Warner was OK Devlin Hodges looks to impress Steelers 2981382511 what with the "greatest show on turf". Devlin Hodges looks to impress Steelers 1797695198 If Hodges is the real deal it should come out in camp. How many teams do we know who will be having a 3 way competition for the #2 QB spot.I'm not sure if he gets a fair shake or not in camp. I think he'll have to kick the door in to get a shot but that would make it really interesting. Who would be the odd man out? It may not amount to anything or it could be one of the bigger shake ups in Steeler's history.

Kurt Warner is a fine example of a RB and WRs make a good QB look great with a really good o-line out in front.

Kurt Warner was a stud. He wasn't just a "good QB". Warner got the Arizona Cardinals into the Super Bowl when they barely had any business making the playoffs. Sure he had good receivers in Boldin, and Fitzgerald but they weren't exactly unstoppable when it came to their offensive line and running backs (30yr old Edgerrin James way past his prime, and Tim Hightower). Warner put that team on his back. Great quarterbacks do that, not just good ones.

JMHO but any player that gets into the Hall of Fame is a great player or they wouldn't have been inducted.

I agree with everything you say. Warner was a stud packing groceries before he got his second chance. Maybe I'm wrong but I think character factors in to whether a player is one of the best or great. You're right too that anyone in the HOF was a great (individual) player but I admire guys like Warner who handled their "lack of recognition" with style and grace. Whether they accept it or not professional athletes are role models. Bell and Brown are examples of "me first" guys who at the very least disrupt the team and at the very worst (which they were at the end) are cancers to the cause. Sure they were leaders for us but in the wrong direction.

Warner was the complete package. There are a lot of players in the HOF that had they been judged by their ability to be a team first guy would not have made it.

the legend Larry Fitzgerald a #2 WR named Anquan Boldin and a position WR Breaston and Whisenhunt HC and OC with a RB duo of Wells and Hightower yes Warner was good in Arozona. but was surrounded by very good talent just like in St. Louis.

imo it was the level of talent around him, don't get me wrong Warner was a very football smart accurate QB.

I really liked Whisenhunt's offense when he was the Steelers OC.

I believe it was Warner making good players better. I agree Whis factored in and I also liked him as our OC.
I see Warner a little like Ben. Look at AB and whoever was our #2 when Ben was not in and a lesser talent like Jones and even Batch ( who was in my IMHO the best backup we ever had) could not duplicate the production.Larry Fitz is no doubt a HOF candidate when his time comes but didn't have nearly the production when Warner left.

Yeah as when Kurt left, Larry had to deal with a lot of QB's there. And that he is still clutch. But his production left when Kurt did.
