Pros: Reid has the top speed and quickness to make an impact as a deluxe role performer. He is an explosive runner who accelerates once he gets his hands on the ball. He can get open consistently and run away from defenders. He has sure hands that will allow him to become a pro slot receiver with further development. As a punt returner he is elusive with the toughness to take a hit and keep his balance. He has the ability to make the first tackler miss. He secures the ball well and rarely fumbles. As a returner, he is much more effective on punts than kickoffs.
Cons: Lacks good size to win a regular starting job as a receiver in a pro offense.
Numbers: In 2005, Reid led Florida State in all-purpose yardage including 46 receptions for 579 yards and one touchdown, 31 punt returns for a school-record 541 yards and three touchdowns and eight kickoff returns for 145 yards. At the Combine he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds with a 37?” vertical jump and 9’9” broad jump.
Skinny: He may never be more than a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver, but his playmaking as a punt returner could earn him a fine career. He is similar to Chad Morton in many ways. Fine second day pick with the talent to provide immediate impact on special teams.

Pittsburgh - Reid, Willie - WR - 5-11 - 187 - Florida State

Another WR? When are we going to get a RB, or depth on the D-line?

Not so much WR as he will be a special teams player...which the Steelers need.
