Cant judge a draft for at least 3 years. This grade crap they do after is like saying a new born baby is going to be this or that. How the hell do we know.

I think the Wallace pick will be great,that is my point of view,I just think He will end up being better than Nate.

Ward is going to retire or drop off in skill soon, Holmes might demand a huge diva contract in a couple years, nobody knows whether Sweed will be great or whether he'll turn out to suck, and we're basically getting our fourth receiver out of the garbage can. WR isn't a huge immediate need for next season, but we'll need at least one guy to step in over the next 2-3 years. Definitely worth taking a chance on with a third-round pick. It's called thinking ahead.

Nate Washington was a speed guy who could get separation downfield.

I think this pick with Wallace replicates what Nate brought to the team plus some exceptional return skills.

He was not brought in to replace Hines. They are two totally different kinds of receivers IMO

Just maybe helping the team is what the draft is about.......Just trying to figure out a 3rd pick on a project wideout does for our future. Keep in mind our other needs.

Simple.

The Coaches saw needs.

The coaches filled needs.

Or the coaches saw BPA

Teh coaches drafted BPA.


Not sure about your point.

I won't question the pick but it's not like the original poster doesn't have the right to pose the question. Hell, who knows, he may be right. It's not like the Steelers are "always" dead on with their draft picks.

Let me see, hmmmm , lets see, hmmmmm. Jermaine Stephens, Troy Edwards, just to name a couple.

If you really think he was the best player available in round 3....I really have to question your football judgement. The coaches may see or know something i don't and i hope this is the case. Just not sure why, with Sweed, Nance and Baker waiting in the wings, we spent a 3 on a raw wideout.
