Im going to say Mike Wallace, the dudes speed with arms. Definitely has a lot of potential, and Im not having to much trouble imagining Santo, Sweed, and Wallace out there once Ward retires.

Personally Im rooting for Frank Summers the most though... Id love to see the run game improve just so we can be able to move the chains not only by the air but on the ground.

Wallace wins this easy for me though, definitely gonna be a factor as time progresses...

I have to agree with the rest of you. Mike Wallace looked pretty great out there. He caught the ball cleanly every time, from what I can remember. Plus his 4.28 forty time is just amazing. I don't know if we have any other rookie capable of making an immediate impact on the team like Wallace can.

Burnett looked good i know he fumbled, but after that he seemed to get his head into the game and his INT was pretty sweet. He was more determined to get the the ball.

I have to agree. Wallace has good hands and will provide speed and a nice 4th option for Ben.

Wallace should get more chances than the other players. But I would expect his chances to mostly come on kick returns. He's going to have a tough time getting looks among the group we have! Hines Ward and Heath Miller, Santonio, Mewelde and Sweed will all get the majority of Ben's looks. God are we deep!

My choice is still Wallace with Ziggy a close second.

That is what I was thinking as well. Wallace played well for his first game and will only get better. Ziggy was in on a few plays as well looked good.
