We might see some more of Nate Washington. I think the Steelers are going to draft a WR to give us a deep threat.

Michael Robinson isn't going to be an NFL player. He's not a natural quarterback, and the general opinion coming out of the Senior Bowl is that he's going to take a very long time to develop into a wide receiver, if he does at all. Regardless, he's not going to be the answer for ARE.

with Pittsburgh drafting No. 32 this year (fingers crossed), their first round pick is probably going to be more of a second-rounder, their second-rounder will be more of a third, and so on.

I think the best fit for their offense - assuming they choose to go with a high pick on a WR - is Hagans from ASU or Avant from Michigan. Both of them are Ward-like in their abilities. They aren't going to blow you away with their speed, but they're tough, precise route-runners and have excellent hands. Hagens' stock dropped a bit at the Senior Bowl, and might be available in the second round. Avant will more than likely be there in the third.

Also, Miami's Sinorice Moss (Senior Bowl MVP) was said to have impressed scouts quite a bit last week, and might be an intriguing pick-up considering he has the same abilities as 'Twaan (extremely quick, fast, multi-use athlete).

But I have been very impressed with Cedrick Wilson's play in the post-season, and I loved what Q (uincy Morgan) brought to the table until he got hurt. I don't think Pittsburgh needs to draft a wide receiver to play next year. They might want to bring in a guy to compete for the 4th WR spot with Nate Washington, but I think they'll be fine with Hines, Ced and Q next season, assuming Randle-El leaves, which is very likely.

Love the Q... Quincy Morgan (not the question). ARE will be back in Black in Gold IMO.

Why is it very likely?? He had his crack at a solid #2 spot and did not produce as a solid #2 WR, he had a decent year, but....nothing that is going warrant a huge contract. He had 35 catches for 500+ yards. Yes he does bring a little more to the table because of his PR skills and the fact that he can be involved in gadget plays, but ......since the Desmond Howard signing there really haven't been any huge signings for players that have this type of skill set.

i think michael robinson will not fit in the nfl... this draft is not high on star power at the wr position but i do think it is pretty deep. A wr anywhere for 3-5 round would be good for the steelers, they dont need to go gettin a wr in the first and have to pay alot of money for him. i like mike hass from oregon state, but i dunno wat free agency has either

He's done enough and has enough potential to merit a raise. His punt return abilities definitely put him a step ahead of similar players for his size. This isn't to say he's going to be making Harrison/Moss like money, but he'll definitely ask for more than the $2 million the Steelers have already committed to Ced, and I can't really see the Steelers - knowing that organization - ponying up for more than that. Randle-El is a class act and a fine representative of the type of people Pittsburgh likes to keep around, but I couldn't see the Steelers going more than $3 mil per, and I bet he could get more than that somewhere else (read: Dallas)

$3 million per year for Randel El? No way. He's barely worth half that and that contract would kill our future. Remember we are already paying Ward, Hartings big money, our LB's each make $3-5 million a year and we are going to have to pay Ben and Polo big time money to keep them. Also Willie P. is going to get a nice pay day.

ARE is probably gone and it doesn't really worry me too much. He won't be as good on other teams because he can't really beat you on talent alone.

We have a good running game, a good #1 WR in Ward, and a good TE so whatever Randel El gets is because of that. Put him as a #1 WR on a team that does not have as many options and he'll get shut down. As a #2 he has some worth but not $2m a year. I really hope someone does pay him that, it will be like the Chief's getting Kendrell Bell. Their loss is our gain.

I also think we will draft a WR, hopefully #1. A 1st round pick at the 32nd position is NOT someone who is going to get a lot of money. Martin Nance is my favorite because he was Ben's favorite WR in college but Nate Washington and Quincy Morgan will also compete for the #3 WR position.

If we do keep Randel El I think we should cut Cedric Wilson. Yes I know he had a couple of catch's in the playoffs but he's not worth $2.4 million especially since we need to be mindful of our future salary cap situation. I'm very sure that Morgan or Washington can put up Wilson like numbers for half the price.
