4
5
6
7
8
9 Ike Hilliard
10 (Maybe) Darrell Jackson

I remember the last overhyped Gator WR, Taylor Jacobs. He was picked in almost the same spot, and has torn through NFL defenses, catching 30 whole passes over the last 3 seasons.

That's THIRTY passes...TOTAL...averaging 10 catches a year.

But I bet he was great on that Juggs machine!
Don't forget about Jabar Gaffney

Holmes is a Steelers now, so we all got his back. But I`m sure the Steelers did thier homework, and thye would have taken alot more than just a competion to make the pick.

Props Steelers great move.

You are right of course Cleve,

there is no way im going to say that the Steelers have drafted a bum receiver - I would personally have been happy with either.

I hear alot of good things about Holmes breakaway speed once he has caught the ball - and his ultra precise route running - one thing I have seen red flagged a couple of times is his method of holding the ball which leads to fumbles - but such a minor problem with a rookie should be easily rectified by the Steelers coaches.

Im expecting both players to make an impact next year.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

After all, they all saw the overwhelming success last years winner, Troy Williamson had in Minnesota!

I also didn't notice Santonio Holmes in the competion at all.

And you wonder why you were asked to leave for 3 days?

He needs 3 TV's: 1) Livingroom 2) Kitchen 3) Toilet:

- so he will not miss watching a single moment of Pittsburgh in SuperBowl XLI ! ! !

Should the Steelers have drafted Jackson over Holmes? hmmm?
Santonio: SB XLIII MVP

C. Jackson: Has yet to do anything in an NFL game

Yep we should have got Chad Jackson
