Steelers speed at WR right now

Antonio Brown 4.43 low
Emanual Sanders 4.40 with a low 4.30
Jerricho Cotchery 4.54
Plaxico Burress 4.59


Does Sanders display his 4.40 - 4.30 speed? He has 6 total catches for more then 20 yards in his career. 2.5 million this year is nothing. They paid Foote that to back up Farrior and Randel El to come back and be a third WR. What they may not want to do is pay him 5 million a year or more starting in 2014.

I'm begining to think speedy WRs do in fact grow on trees.

Top speed in this year's draft at WR:

Tavon Austin 4.28
Cordarrelle Paterson 4.33
Robert Woods 4.42
Justin Hunter 4.36
Terrance Williams 4.48
Quinton Patton 4.48
Markus Wheaton 4.40
Marquis Goodwin 4.21
Ryan Swope 4.28
Steadman Bailey 4.46
Aaron Dobson 4.43
Kenny Stills 4.32
Tavarres King 4.40
Josh Boyce 4.34
Corey Fuller 4.32

Counted 13 more 4.4 range times in the top 40, then there is all the guys that run in the low 4.5's who are highly regarded receivers like Keenan Allen, DeAndre
Hopkins, and Da'rick Rogers to name a few.

Two or three times last year I watched Brown outrun Wallace and Sanders, and to top it all off, he has some serious quickness. Maybe more quickness than Wallace and Sanders combined. Wallace had excellent straight-line speed, sure, but I think we can find someone in the draft to fill that gap.

Where did you get these 40 times? They are not accurate.

I went to the nfldraftscout.com website. Double checking it did say 40 range. Not sure what that means. Maybe this is their lows? Please make any corrections needed thank you. Should have stuck to the nfl.com web site however they may still have run these times at some point as their low.
