Exaclty -- at WR all we're looking for is depth in a four-wide look. We have much bigger needs to adress first (O-line???)

If we can find a tall receiver late (6th-7th round)go for it. If no tall receivers we should wait until next year.

No, is my answer.. I dont see anything wrong maybe in the 3rd or 4th round selecting another reciever with some good size, but I think that the Steelers must get some depth here at WR.. I guess the WR from the Saints which was what a ..... 6th round pick that ended up being NFL Rookie of the year... late round WR's can be found no doubt about it..

If the Steelers draft a WR in the 1st round, they are crazy.

Agreed, as well as some other positions. If we found a best available beast WR 6'2', 4.4, With great track record,early/middle rounds, maybe. Otherwise, just hope for a late round steal/project, like saints....never know..

1992
Charles Davenport North Carolina State WR 4th...bust

1995
Henry Bailey UNLV WR 7th ....bust


1996
Jahine Arnold Fresno State WR 4th.....bust

1997
Michael Adams Texas WR 7th....bust

1999
Malcolm Johnson Notre Dame WR 5th...bust

2000
Danny Farmer UCLA WR 4th....bust

2001
Chris Taylor Texas A&M WR 7th... bust

2002
Lee Mays Texas El Paso WR ...6th...bust
