Back-up Running Back a Priority for Steelers – By Smokin’ Jim Frazier

I believe you can become a lawyer by going to YALE or by going to JAIL like Judge Mathis and still make it to the TOP!  You can also go to the NFL from YALE.      Tyler Varga, (5’11 , 230 lbs. Running Back – Yale) rushed for 1,500 yards and scored 26 touchdowns in 2014 for Yale University.  Extremely smart – 3.6 GPA and speaks 3 languages! He has appeared, at times, to be unstoppable — a running back built like a nuclear warhead, with a bodybuilder’s physique.      By drafting Varga, the Steelers could be catching “LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE”!  Tyler Varga can do it all.  He is tough, hard nose, fundamentally sound, can run, block, catch and will be an asset on special teams. Pound-for-pound he is the strongest players in the draft.  I CALL TYLER VARGA ‘ALCATRAZ’, BECAUSE HE’S BULT LIKE A ROCK!  Tyler’s meticulous training and nutrition built his massive physique. Tyler Varga, is the hardest working running back since Walter Payton and Rocky Bleier. He is a goal setter.  A well-defined GOAL is like a MAGNET, it will pull you in that direction.  But, the key is in your belief.  BELIEF IS THE ‘THERMOSTAT’ THAT REGULATES WHAT YOU ACCOMPLISH IN LIFE!      The Pittsburgh Steelers have to fill defensive needs in the 2015 draft, but cannot ignore the running back position.  If the Steelers select Tyler Varga in the 3rd round they will immediately get a leader in the locker room, weight room, class room and the room of team improvement. Backup running back will move from the weakest positions on the team to the STRENGTH of the team in more ways than one.
