Default Which WR do you think we'll take?

I think with the Steelers trading their most productive receiver we can safely assume that they're going to take a WR in one of the first two rounds. My question for you guys is, "Who do you like?"
I think I'll go with the best available. I really don't know enough about any of them to have a preference.

I guess I would agree with you if it wasn't for the fact that a majority (7) of their prospect visits were receivers.

We've got six receivers on the roster already, seven if you count Logan. So I doubt we take any unless we inexplicably plan on cutting someone who we just paid a $1 million signing bonus to.

I don't know why. Benn has never accomplished anything. And he is a super stiff WR who cannot move at all. Way way Overhyped is he. And what 6 WR's do the Steelers have ?


I know you ain't counting Sweed and Grisham. And even Logan might not make the team. Especially if the new drafted WR has return skills. Steelers will take a WR. I just HOPE it's not Benn, cause he will definitely Suck. Plus he has MAJOR Medical Issues as well. Take the SMU kid Sanders. And then take a flier on QB/WR/everything Joe Webb of Alabama Birmingham.

Freddie Barnes in the later rounds. I don't give a shit if he's slow in shorts and sneakers, he gets open, is strong, and has the surest hands of any WR in this draft. He's the anti-Sweed, meaning if the ball is near him, he'll catch it. Great prospect as a possession receiver who we can nurture along...he's also a blocker who doesn't mind contact, which makes him an ideal Steelers WR candidate.

I've seen him projected as low as FA, but I think he'll be scooped up in the 5th...hopefully by us. He caught 155 passes last year, for Christs sake!
