Default NFL Team Report: Sanders Makes Steelers Coaches Take Notice

Third-round WR Emmanuel Sanders(notes) has been one of the surprises of camp. The coaches knew about his speed and playmaking ability before the draft, but they have been impressed with his route-running and quickness in and out of breaks. In that regard, offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said Sanders is ahead of where Mike Wallace(notes), last yearís third-round choice, was at this point in 2009. Wallace won the No. 3 job in camp last year and became a big-play receiver during the season, catching six touchdowns.

Sanders probably will be the teamís fourth receiver and back up Wallace at the split end position. But, if he continues his development, Arians will find ways to get him on the field. Sanders and sixth-round pick Antonio Brown(notes), who has also been impressive, will help ease the loss of WR Santonio Holmes(notes), who was traded to the Jets after repeated off-field incidents.

i would love to see both sanders and brown play like wallace did last season. its almost gurenteed that ward will be hurt during the season so we really need someone to step up. plus it would be nice to have 3 young wr's who can actually change a game

Limas is done. A torn Achilles is impossible to come back from for a WR that relies on fast break away starts from a dead cold start and the quick snap cuts that are demanded on almost every play of a game. Its just a simple fact of the human anatomy.

I liked Limas I thought he got a raw deal by many of the fans that wanted his head. That being said I think the young mans career is over in the NFL. A torn Achilles is just way way too hard to recover from playing at that position and its demands on the human body.

I was looking at the combine results..I am not surprised at all that he is making a splash. He was one of the quickest players in the draft and had the most athletic ability. The only knock on him is that he was small.

I know he isn't "small" but that is what the "experts" were saying.

I originally HATED this pick when we drafted him, I was PI$$ED that we took a receiver in the third and passed on Golden Tate...but then about a week after the draft I started watching some of his film and stuff and realized how foolish I was to not trust the Rooneys lol, ever since then I realized just how good this guy could end up being and Im actually SHOCKED he wasn't ranked higher on draft boards, I think if he went to a more nationally recognized college he could have been a first/second round pick...I love Randle El but I really hope Sanders beats him out on the depth chart and gets in on a lot of plays, this guy has ROTY potential IMO if we throw to him enough. Not to mention he's one of the classiest guys too, check out his Facebook page he actually takes the time to personally respond to everybody's (I literally mean everybody's) comments (at least he did before camp started).
