Default Mardy Gilyard

What do you guys think the chances are of us picking up Mardy Gilyard in the second or third round? I think he would be a great slot receiver plus hes an excellent return man. Hines isn't getting any younger and Santonio is probably going to want a fat contract when his current deal is up. I'm anxious to hear your opinions.

Chances are slim and none.........and Slim just left the building. Ward, Holmes, Wallace, Miller are enough targets and it sounds like they are still going forward with the thought that Sweed can contribute.

If we use a pick in the top 3 rounds on a WR, I'll eat my hat.

NO way we take a WR in the 1st/2nd/or 3rd....maybe in the fourth.....but we got good recievers already w/ the exception of LameASS Sweed...lol....hope he steps up his game next year.....but I do acknowledge the fact that Ward is getting older and injured more than he used to but he still has a couple of more years left in him!!!!...Man it will be a sad day when Hines Ward retires!!!!!

I wouldnt hate seeing them take a WR, unfortunately ward is gettting older and that leaves wallace and holmes with a very questionable sweed, taking a solid WR 2nd or 3rd round wouldnt be the worse thing in the world


Im not sure about Gilyard but a WR nonetheless.


I would like to see other positions filled dont get me wrong like corner saftey d line and even oline im just saying a WR isnt horrible.

Steelers have a thing for picking a position no one excepts them to on draft day. But I highly doubt we neglect the OL in round 2.

I don't see us taking a receiver in the top part of the draft. If there is a decent one later in the draft and we pick him up it would not make me mad.
