    Probably because he or Meredith can be had with our last pick in the 3rd.

    Even in his college days, Ben has always severly underthrown WRs that go deep. I'm a little worried about this pick just for that reason. The Steelers need to stop trying out new WRs in the deep threat role. What they need to do is talk to Ben and let him know to pull the trigger earlier instead of waiting for a WR to get obvious separation.

    Here is what ESPN says about him in detail:

    Scouts Inc. Player Evaluations
    ProfileNewsESPN LocalBlog NetworkGrading Scale ConversationESPNDB
    Overall Football Traits
    Production 3 2004: Wallace signs with Oregon State but does not enroll or play football. 2005: Wallace enrolls at Mississippi 2005 and appears in 10 games that year. He returns four kickoffs for a total of 48 yards. 2006-'08: Wallace starts 28 of the 37 games he appears in catching a total of 101 passes for a total of 1,910 yards and 15 touchdowns. He carries the ball 11 times for a total of 97 yards and returns 56 kickoffs for a total of 1,343 yards and two touchdowns.
    Height-Weight-Speed 2 Adequate height, adequate bulk and excellent speed.
    Durability 1 Durability is not a concern to our knowledge.
    Character 2 Majoring in African American Studies. There have been no off-the-field incidents to our knowledge.
    Wide Receiver specific Traits
    Separation Skills 3 Explodes off the ball and eats up cushions. Tempos routes well but a bit high coming out of cuts and needs to transition out of breaks better. Showed better-than-expected upper body strength at the combine but doesn't use hands well on film and going to have problems getting a clean release working against press coverage. Can get pushed around by bigger corners.
    Ball Skills 3 Shows sound body control. Does a nice job of positioning body between defender and ball. Tracks the deep ball extremely well. However, lets the ball get to frame on occasion and can drop passes that should catch.
    Vertical Speed 2 Goes from 0-60 mph extremely quickly and can run by most corners.
    Run After Catch 3 Slippery open-field runner that can make defenders miss and flashes breakaway speed. However doesn't show great vision and won't break many tackles.
    Competitiveness and Toughness 4 Does a nice job of going up and fighting for the ball. Willing to attack the middle of the field. However, needs to develop a mean streak. Effort as a run blocker is inconsistent.

    They just talked about him on NFL network. And Frankthetank Tate went the pick before to the Patriots.
    oh i know i meant i wish he was available. i would have rather had tate than wallace, but i didnt know wallace can return play as a return man. that makes a big difference

    I can't find any punt return stats. Please tell me we didn't take a guy who has no experience returning punts. My three areas of highest need going in were the interior offensive line, defensive end and a return specialist, so I'm very happy. But punt return is a more glaring need than kick return with Mewelde Moore on the roster. If Wallace isn't that guy, I think this is a pretty bad pick.



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    "Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

    Re: 84 - Mike Wallace, WR

    Height: 6-03/8 | Weight: 199 | 40-Time: 4.33
    Strengths:
    Outstanding speed...Excellent athlete...Dangerous vertical threat...Is quick and agile in space...Solid ball skills...Adequate height and bulk...Is tougher than he's given credit for...Also a terrific return man.

    Weaknesses:
    Average instincts and awareness...Not a great route runner...Doesn't have natural hands and drops some balls...Gives okay effort but isn't much of a blocker..Will struggle to beat the jam...Average production.

    Notes:
    First name is actually "Burnell"...A three-year starter in the SEC for the Rebels...Holds the Ole Miss records for single-game, season and career kickoff return yardage and ranks second all-time in all-purpose yardage...Led the SEC in yards per reception in both 2007 and 2008...Doesn't profile as a starter at the next level but he will keep defenses honest with his deep speed and contribute on special teams.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    If you're watching the draft coverage they said he'll likely be used in the slot like a Wes Welker type and no doubt they snagged him up as a developmental guy behind Ward/Holmes/Sweed and will use him to return punts/kicks immediately.

    Moore can return punts. IIRC, he led the league a few years ago in punt returns.
