With their second choice in the fifth round, the Pittsburgh Steelers made UNLV RB Frank Summers the 169th player to be drafted.
Summers came to the Steelers with alot of fanfare. Nicknamed "The Tank," Summers was an internet sensation who was supposed to be the answer to the Steelers short-yardage problems.
But Summers upright running style and a season-ending injury derailed "The Tank."
Summers seemed to be versitile in the limited time that he played this season.
He beat out Carey Davis for the FB job, and proved he could be used as a HB. He also showed flashes of catching ability, and was solid on special teams.
While he may not be the second coming of Jerome Bettis as many fans hoped/thought, Summers could still be an productive player for the Steelers in 2010 and beyond.
Summers likely will not only battle for the fullback position, but with Willie Parker likely leaving via free agency, Summers will also likely battle for playing time as halfback.
