A supremely confident Cedrick Wilson insisted the other day that he is not concerned with the Steelers' decision to draft speedy wideouts Santonio Holmes and Willie Reid in the first and third rounds, respectively, of the NFL draft.

The way the veteran pass-catcher sees it, the new blood on the roster is only going to make the team better.

And, it will force the receiving corps to play at an extremely high level.

"Competition is great," Wilson said. "Because the thing with competition is, it brings out the best in you -- or, it should, anyway. It's either going to bring out your best or you'll be destroyed. By competing, that's how you win games and how you win Super Bowls. So, it's great that Santonio and Willie are here. They're great guys, good kids willing to come in here and learn."

Wilson is penciled in as the heir apparent at split end to Antwaan Randle El, who left for the Washington Redskins via free agency this offseason. Some might have questioned Wilson's credentials as a Steelers starter based on his 2005 regular-season statistics -- 26 receptions for 451 yards (17.3 per catch) and no touchdowns -- but he came to life in the playoffs and quashed any concerns about his abilities.

In four postseason games, he had nine catches for 216 yards (24.0) with two touchdowns. Against the Denver Broncos in the AFC title game, Wilson had five receptions for 92 yards and a score.

"Ced's a great player; we always knew that," wideout Hines Ward said. "He's another playmaker on this team."

Wilson might even get a chance to be a playmaker with his throwing arm next season, like Randle El was throughout his Steelers career. Wilson was a nationally recognized quarterback as a prep star in Memphis and originally signed at Tennessee to play quarterback (and be the successor to Peyton Manning) before moving to wideout.

"I want to help us win games any way I can," Wilson said. "I want us to win another Super Bowl."

Wilson, 27 and a six-year veteran, is philosophical heading into 2006 training camp, where Holmes, Reid, ever-improving second-year man Nate Washington and Quincy Morgan will be battling for playing time. He understands that those players could reduce his opportunities to make plays, but he sees that as a healthy situation -- not a negative one.

"You have to be secure with yourself," Wilson said. "You have to be confident that you're giving all you have, and, at the end of the day, whatever decision the coaches make, or the organization makes, whatever direction they have to go, you can't point the finger at yourself and say, 'Oh, I (stink).' You have to know that you don't (stink)."

Wilson said he often repeats three important words to himself.

"Catch the ball," Wilson said. "That's all I worry about. If I catch the ball, it doesn't matter what my statistics are. When the ball is thrown to me and my team is counting on me to make the play, I need to make those plays."

Wilson felt he wasn't making enough of them in the 2005 regular season, and was not shy about making it known publicly. He wondered out loud if Pittsburgh was the right place for him and if he fit into the offense.

The former San Francisco 49ers wideout voiced his concerns after going through a two-game stretch in Weeks 6-7 during which he had no catches. In a span of five games from Weeks 4-7, he managed a total of three receptions.

"It wasn't even a case in which I thought I wasn't performing at a high level; it was a case of circumstance," Wilson said. "We got into certain game plans of how to beat other teams, and that's how we played. But it's tough to sit back and say, 'Wow, I'm in my prime and I only have 26 catches.' And at the same time, if you don't get frustrated, you shouldn't be here. I don't know one receiver in the league who doesn't want the football."

As he continues to participate in voluntary workouts with the Steelers, Wilson said he is taking nothing for granted. He knows the NFL is a business, and that if he doesn't meet expectations, he could lose his job as a starter.

That's why he stayed around Pittsburgh for much of the offseason, and it's why he'll continue to do so when the voluntary sessions conclude June 8.

"I can't live off of what I did in the playoffs," Wilson said. "I was fortunate to get some huge opportunities and to make plays -- and hopefully, it gave the coaches and Ben (Roethlisberger) confidence in me, knowing I can perform on a big stage. But you have to continue doing it. Last year was last year. Nobody cares what you did last year if you can't do it again, or make yourself better. I know what's expected of me -- and what I expect from myself -- and I'm going to work to keep getting better every time I step on that field."
