Re: Y didnt we take White?
No way is our philosophy changing .... because we took a WR 1st and 3rd ? Holmes and Reid are good players but nothing to say "we are chaning our philosophy over" Our WR core was NOT deep, it had a lot of mediocore talent and this draft upgraded that depth and talent. I think the Steelers were tickled pink they were able to get Holmes. I think he was probably the guy the wanted the most out of the guys there and were shocked he lasted to the 25th pick. IMO it's a no brainer when you compare trading up for Holmes or White. I would have been happy with either or in the first round, but if they would have taken White while Holme was still available ...I would have been really shocked. The guys a GOOD receiver.
