Mendenhall making a positive impression in Pittsburgh

May 29, 2008



The way we hear it, Steelers rookie RB Rashard Mendenhall looks as though he will be a solid fit in Bruce Arians' offense. Mendenhall has caught the ball well in his brief Steelers career, and he's also shown the speed that helped make him such a well-regarded prospect. Mendenhall and probable third-down back Mewelde Moore are likely to be the first backs off the bench for Pittsburgh, which will have a more versatile backfield than it did a season ago. Mendenhall, who is healthy again after suffering a hamstring injury early in May, will primarily play the role of keeping starter Willie Parker fresh. At the NFL Players Rookie Premiere, Mendenhall told PFW he can learn a lot from the productive Parker simply by "seeing how he works every day, just his attitude about everything. I learned that when I got there, and I just feel like I’m picking up a lot just being under him."

Nothing but good news coming out of this camp! Impressive that the rookie is looking good enough to beat out some of the other RBs already. As for Moore, I don't know much about him but I found this nugget on his Wiki page:

"Moore took 24 credits in spring 2004 so he could graduate on time with a double major in Finance and Accounting."
