Default Mike Wallace for another #1 pick?

The Steelers losing Mike Wallace as a restricted free agent may not be all that far fetched from actually happening. With Josh Mcdaniels back in New England and having his best success when Randy Moss was there, isn't a big play receiver the one thing the Patriots offense is missing? Isn't that why you knew they had little chance of beating the Giants at the end because they now have become a dink and dunk offense. Imagine what Brady's accuracy could do with Wallace who was missed by Ben many more times then he was connected with.

The Patriots pick is 31st and they have no chance of finding a Mike Wallace in this year's draft where the first round talent grades actually stop around the early 20's (this being a very weak draft year).

It's almost a no brainer for the Patriots. But what if say the Philadelphia Eagles who might not want to franchise Desean Jackson offer up their 15th overall pick for Wallace?

1st round Draft could look something like this for the Steelers.

15th pick OG David Decastro
24th pick ILB's Burflect, or Hightower, NT Poe, WR Mohamed Sanu or even OG Glenn

or with the patriot's pick:

24th and 31st could snag 2 of these guys
ILB's Burflect, or Hightower, NT Poe, WR Mohamed Sanuor or even OG Glenn as well.

A tall receiver in the 2nd or 3rd could be
Rueben Randle, Dwight Jones, or Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa my personal favorite and I think the Steelers should look at even with Mike Wallace on the roster.

It's Unlikely be get a top 20 out of Wallace but it is very likely the Patriots would give up a 31st pick for him.

the steelers will put the high tender on wallace. any team that wants him will have a chance at him for a 1st and 3rd.

i wouldn't give up the 31st pick for wallace. if they tender him, i hope they match any offer from any team who doesn't have a top 15 pick.

i hope they keep wallace though, you don't let your best player on offense just go.

He'll be gone one way or another, IMO. Someone will offer the price and take him. However, I won't really miss him. With the rest of our WR crew stepping up, and anticipating Heath being our go to guy to establish the short pass, not to mention Wallace showing glimpses of personality issues, I don't think we'll miss a step.

This isn't Holmes, they'll get the most out of him they can, and that'll be a mid-first rounder and a late third or early fourth rounder. I'm guessing 13-19 round one pick and a 26-32 third rounder or a 1-4 fourth rounder. I doubt we'll get a top ten pick out of him, but anything's possible.

To be quite honest, Rooney said one of there main priorities is to sign him, so this discussion may be invalid altogether, lol. Just speculation at this point.

That's true, but we're also extremely hard against the cap. He could very well be saying that, looking to keep the price high. Obviously he wouldn't come out and say "Fire sale! Someone take this guy off our hands, please...". I just think we're good to go at WR with or without him.

he makes the other recievers around him better...

i dont see anyone else going 95 to the house, or 81 to the house..


when you got speed guys, you keep speed guys..



he blows the roof off the building with his speed..



and rest of our receiving core?

okay i'll give you miller, brown and sanders

but if we lost wallace after that ?


ward? cant go deep,

crotchery? no guarantee he is even here...




losing wallace would be big ... especially with haley here now...

and one more thing, why on Gods green earth would you trade him to the pats? so he could smoke us in the playoffs i dont think so..


hes a steeler guy, learning to run routes and block.. he'll be here till he loses his wheels

Lets halt right there for a second. We're maybe a bit spoiled as Steeler fans, but really, there are plenty of teams out there that would kill to have just these 3 guys.

On top of that, where do we get the money to pay him? If he returns to form and keeps his play up, he's likely going to be looking for 5+ mil a year. We're 25 mil over cap. We currently have a very strong Defense, a good array of offensive stars, and some guys drawing massive superstar salaries. We can't keep juggling it all. Someone has to go, so who do you choose to part ways with?

We have a history of letting extra WR's cut free, despite their potential.
