I follow the Steelers so I have been keeping up with Maze. He was a long shot to make the team when camp began but he has been looking good every day. He's returning kicks and punts with Chris Rainey and has been making some nice catches at receiver. Here is a statement on him today.
"We are hearing the name of Marquis Maze every day it seems, as the smallish receiver continues to make some nice catches." - From steelersdepot.com
I have read positive comments on Maze like this every day. Hopefully he will make the team.
Here is another comment from behindthesteelcurtain.com:
"From today’s practice only, the job of returner seems to be a two-man battle between rookies Chris Rainey and Marquis Maze, the diminutive receiver from Alabama. These two guys were the story of the practice for me today, just because I saw them quite a bit – they were standing out, despite being of a similarly miniscule nature. I don’t want to jump to conclusions or cause too much speculation off one very early practice, but there could be an interesting battle developing between two like-skilled players attempting to fill that Darren Sproles/Dexter McCluster role Todd Haley likes in his offense. While Maze didn’t take any snaps at running back, he did make a hell of a play today in 7 on 7s. He was being covered by fellow rookie Terrance Frederick, who immediately went into press coverage on the rookie. Maze beat the jam at the line and sped past T-Fred, beating him to the sideline, and hauling in a nicely-thrown fade pass. Maze kept the burners on after he looked the ball right into his hands and took off for what would have been a touchdown."
Good to hear. I actually forgot about him being up there.
I think there have been some favorable comments toward Darius Hanks as well. He is in Redskins camp.

Pretty good breakdown right here...
There is one Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver on everyone's mind right now—Mike Wallace—who is currently holding out from camp...
I have heard good reports on him here on Pittsburgh radio as well.

Pretty good barometer of how good your program is when you have 7-8 guys drafted (4 1st rounders) and another 7-8 undrafted free agents that sign with teams and prove they should've been draftees also

If you learn how to compete in Alabama's system the transition to the NFL is pretty smooth. Its starting to show more and more. Chapman will make some noise once his knee heals. You heard it here first. The numbers of Alabama players getting drafted will increase every year.
Seems that every player coming out of Bama has great things said about them when they transition to the NFL. Even the undrafted guys are ready to come in and compete. If you want to be ready to play in the NFL there really is not better program.
He could be a very nice addition to their team this year (if he does make the final roster) It used to be a 53 man roster but I think that number may have changed with the new CBA? or it may be going to change in coming years. ???
We all know if he's healthy, he can change a game with his returns alone. And he doesn't even have to score to do so. He can change field position in one play, making everything change to his teams favor. LOVE the guy returning punts. And in space with receptions....Hope he continues to do good things and suits up for the black and gold - black and gold....
