I know you probably aren’t surprised by this, but the crack team in the Steelers scouting office is at it again.  He found the camp arm in Mike Reilly, but wait, this might be a little more than we think. Escapability of Ben?  Check out this video as DII Central Washington takes on DI Montana.  About 3:40 is where he does the Ben impersonation.

We took a quick look at the undrafted QB and instantly found some great stuff.  It looks like the 49ers worked him out and many people liked him.

"03/05/09 – Mike Reilly opened a few eyes at the NFL scouting combine. The quarterback from Central Washington also prompted at least one double take. It occurred during one of the countless meetings he had with one of umpteen teams in Indianapolis two weeks ago. “One of the coaches asked me that — ‘Coming from Division II, how is it coming to this combine?’ “Reilly said this week. “I told him straight up, ‘Hey, I think I’m the best quarterback in this year’s draft.” “I think I caught him off guard, because he looked at me kind of funny. Then I said, ‘Hey, I’m not projected as a first-rounder. I’m coming from a small school. But if I don’t have that kind of confidence, I’m never going to be able to compete at this level.” “Score one for the big-armed quarterback from the little school in Ellensburg. “You’ve got to love a kid with an attitude like that,” said Scot McCloughan, general manager for the San Francisco 49ers. “He’s a big kid (6 feet 3, 214 pounds) with a good arm and he’s going to get a shot somewhere — probably late in the draft,” Mayock said. But the 49ers rank players in three tiers, and they consider Reilly a second-tier player — which puts him into the late third- to fifth-round category. “I hear a lot of positive things about him,” McCloughan said. “Our scouts think he’s a pretty good prospect. Not a high-round guy, but a middle-round guy that’s got some upside.” – Clare Farnsworth, Seattle Post Intelligencer"
