Second-day surprises

Pittsburgh Steelers

Player/Position: Mike Wallace, receiver

Round: Third

Why: Picking a second-day rookie from the Steelers is challenging, because Pittsburgh had a total of eight players taken after the second round. But if I had to take one under-the-radar player it would be rookie receiver Mike Wallace from Mississippi. Wallace is already one of the fastest and quickest players on the team upon his arrival, and that speed should help him see the field in some capacity. Wallace will get a chance to compete for a backup spot at receiver. But most likely his immediate contribution could come in the return game.

That is some good news a Steeler getting some respect. Hopefully he is right and Wallace will contribute some this year.

I think that Wallace will be a big boost to our return game this year and hopefully help out in some capacity at WR.
