Default Kudos to the Front Office: Mike Wallace

What do the following NFL wide recievers have in common?

Darrius Heyward-Bey, Michael Crabtree, Jeremy Maclin, Percy Harvin, Kenny Britt, Brian Robiskie, Mohamed Massaquoi, Derrick Williams, Brandon Tate.

Actually all these players share two common traits. Each of them were drafted before the Pittsburgh Steelers Mike Wallace....and each of these players trail Wallace in yardage this year.

To be fair, all of the rookie recievers in last years draft are trailing the young Steeler WR. As of week 7, Wallace has quietly racked up 368 yards as the Steelers #3 reciever and also leads the rookie class with eight 20+ yard catches.

The Steelers drafted Wallace #84 overall in the third round in the 2009 draft, for his ability to stretch defenses deep as an outside receiver. Much was made about Heyward Beys 4.30 forty at the combine but somehow Wallace, and his 4.33 forty, flew under most teams radar. 8 teams picked WR's before the Steelers chose Wallace, with the woeful Browns having the pitiful distinction of drafting two WR's before Wallace came off the boards.

All Wallace did at the combine was post the second best forty, the 4th best vertical junp, and tied for the best broadjump among wide recievers. Take that, his Senior Bowl performance, and Wallace's 18.9 yards per reception as a junior and his 20.1 yards per reception as a senior, and you can begin to see that the Steelers had some idea that they had drafted lightning in a bottle.

Kudos to the Front office and to young Mike Wallace.

He looks like a player for sure and looks like a steal at the moment in the third round...... I remember feeling the same about Health his rookie year although he was a first rounder... but you could just tell he was a football player..

I would really hate to see our team without him this year!! I mean the guy brings so much to our offense and he is just a rookie!!! I tell you what the sky is the limit with our offense with wallace in it and to think he is only going to get better is just crazy!!!!!!!

I gotta be honest...when I saw us draft Wallace with players like Austin Collie, Louis Murphy, Johny Knox, and Quan Cosby still available, I thought we left more talented players on the board.

I was looking for us to draft a player that was a KR first and a WR second. This is why I am glad that they do what they do for a living...and I will stick to what I do.

Wallace has been a good pick and he is stretching the field very nice.

I'll admit, initially I questioned the front office's sanity when the Steelers chose an aging "60 Minutes" correspondent to fill a spot at wideout, but, I'll admit, I was wrong.

That old man can play!
