    Harrison 1st undrafted AP Defensive Player of Year

    [size=13pt]Harrison 1st undrafted AP Defensive Player of Year[/size]

    By ALAN ROBINSON, AP Sports Writer

    PITTSBURGH (AP)—James Harrison wasn’t drafted out of Kent State, was cut four times before finally making it onto an NFL roster, yet is The Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year in only his second season as a Pittsburgh Steelers starter.
    Teammate James Farrior said Harrison’s workouts remain the talk of the locker room. Harrison works out as many as three times daily during the offseason, adding an evening workout if he didn’t like one of his daytime sessions.
    Harrison still plays on special teams—he had 12 tackles there—and is so willing to take on extra roles that he filled in as a long snapper when Greg Warren was hurt Oct. 26 against the Giants.
    What a coincidence that two of the best linebackers in their history came from the same school—Lambert also played at Kent State—and both were downgraded by some scouts for supposedly not being physically equipped to play in the league.
    Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood. - H.L. Mencken

    It pains me to think that our former defensive coordinator was involved in this.

    i love the undrafted players making a big impact, its kind of a little "F-U" to everyone that didn't think they'd make it

    Yup, agreed.
    I feel good for him because it does show, lots of guys have the talent to play in the league, they just need a shot.
