I just can't get excited about getting the best receiver in a small and questionably talented draft class.

Just keep telling yourself, he's the best WR in the draft .. allbeit a poor draft class for WR, he was the best available and we had to get one somewhere so it might as well been as good a one as we could have got.

Bottom Line - WR is a bigger need than RB. Even if you feel we need a big back, the Steelers are not ready to give up on Duce, who they feel can fill that role. Eventually we will want to add a quality "big" RB to complement Willie, but I dont think we need to address that this year with whoever the flavor of the moment is.
With Holmes, we now have three solid WRs we can depend on for a couple of years. Ward is good for another 3-4 at least, Cedrick stepped up last year in the playoffs, and Ben is even still improving and is going to need weapons. It's a great pick and is much better than L White.
Now, we need some D - Safety and LB, whoever we got ranked high.

Duce is the key, IF, IF he can only stay healthy, cross your fingers

Thats the million dollar question..if he stays healthy, all this worrying is a mute point, if not, we better make damn sure we have some insurance at RB.

I hope Ben is happy, I mentioned thois in another thread, I think Holmes is a gift to Ben, after losing Plax, and El in consecutive season, and him having no WR to grow with. Yes he has Hines but he needs someone that he can play with for along time. This could be he guy for the long hual. And our offense is changes to more pass, not all but more. Ben needed this pick!

Good point buddy, plus the fact that he returns kicks makes it an even better pick..

Great pick up in my books. Has more of better upside than Randle El will ever have.
