Default Re: Which WR would you want drafted by the Steelers?

Why not? All of our Wide Receivers declined in 2012. Wallace is most likely gone with our cap situation and there's only so much bringing back Burress would do for us. Plus, we NEED more of an Explosive Offense so Ben can thrive and be the Elite Quarterback we know he can be. By picking a WR in the 2nd or 3rd round that has a lot of talent and a RB in the 2nd or 3rd round that has a lot of Talent then our Offense could actually be good for once and we'd have a chance to be a lot better. Look at how badly Baltimore's defense played this year and yet they're in the Superbowl and we aren't. It's because they have an offense with many weapons, Ray Rice, Bernard Pierce, Boldin, Smith, Pitta. People always say Defense win championships and that's true to a point, however without a dominant offense to help your defense it's pointless. The Ravens defense sucked this year, but made stops and big plays when it mattered to Win games, something the Steelers have been known to do in the past but haven't been able to do as of late. Having a moderate defense like we have now for 2013 would be okay, as long as the players are able to make key plays like they're paid to do. Plus drafting a Defensive Stud in the 1st round and another good defensive player in the 4th round, like a safety, we would slightly improve our defense while also dramatically improving our offense if those high offensive draft picks perform at a high level.

Projected WRs for 2013:
Antonio Brown
Emmanuel Sanders
Jericho Cotchery
Plexico Burress
Draft Pick
Reserve Player

My Mock Draft and Mock Draft 2.0 are in my Signature. I have a WR in the Top 3 in both of them.
