Default Steelers digging Bryant's ability

As if I wasn't psyched enough for this offense.

Steelers like Martavis Bryant's talents in red zone
Marc Sessler

We've written a bunch about Pittsburgh's intriguing collection of running backs, but the Steelers have something cooking at the receiver position, too.

Antonio Brown dialed in at No. 23 on NFL Network's The Top 100 Players of 2014, second-year man Markus Wheaton is one of our "Making the Leap" candidates, and fourth-round pick Martavis Bryant has been talked up as a potential starter in Pittsburgh's versatile no-huddle attack.

"He's a big guy, different from what we've had, as far as his length," Steelers wideouts coach Richard Mann told the team's official website this week. "We feel like we can utilize his talents in the red zone. He has a big reach. He has good speed. So we can use him in various ways, as far as cleaning things out. He's also a deep threat. He does have the speed."

A handful of NFL scouts before the draft described the 6-foot-4 Bryant as a "Randy Moss-type build" with better on-field speed than the No. 4 overall pick Sammy Watkins, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Bob McGinn.

Throw in former Saints target Lance Moore, and Pittsburgh boasts a crop of receivers ready to badger secondaries on passing downs. Fellow Around The League scribe Chris Wesseling is pounding the table to make the Steelers our 2014 Team of ATL. Not everyone's buying in just yet, but we all can agree: This team will be a joy to watch in 2014.

I'm excited too. I have a feeling this kid is going to be the steal of the draft. It is a nice luxury to have a tall receiver near the goal line. Just the threat of the corner fade and corner comeback opens up the middle for the tight end near the goal line. Also the kid can fly. Just hope he is mature enough to handle it all. Look at Josh Gordon. It is extremely hard for a rookie wideout to develop chemistry with your QB early in the season. That is because timing is critical in the passing game.

If he catches TD's like Plax, he can shoot himself all he wants.

When Plax shot himself, he didn't catch TDs for a couple of years.

yeah, one of the big reasons why it's not wise for NFL WRs to shoot themselves in the leg...
