Default Re: Can Steelers count on AB,Wheaton, Moye/Cotchery next season?

Drafting a WR early is one of the biggest wastes of picks IMO. So much has to happen in order for a WR to make an impact, like pass protection, having a good QB and defensive coverage.

Look at the WR's taken in 2012 in the first 33 picks. #5 Justin Blackmon JAX, Michael Floyd #13 ARZ, #20 Kendall Wright TEN, #30 AJ Jenkins SFO, #33 Brian Quick STL.

In 2011 there was AJ Green #3, Julio Jones #5, #26 Jonathan Baldwin.

I think Sammy Watkins and Marquise Lee are sure things in this draft, really not sure on the Evans hype, I personally think he will be mediocre. One thing I do believe is that we have enough WR's on the team for Ben to complete passes to without looking to reach for one at #20. I also think we have a lot bigger holes to fill in the first 2 rounds than WR
