    I'd take Tevon Austin over Bailey Dee Dub.

    Yeah but I think Austin's lack of size and the fact that Bailey scored 25 TD's....that's just unreal. And I know Bailey isnt that much bigger but again...25 TD's. I dont want either one of them though. I want one of the bigger WR's...Terrance Williams, DeAndre Hopkins, Robert Woods, etc. That too me would be a better compliment to what the Steelers currently have.

    There is a good chance Austin goes in the second round as well.

    Wasn't there a WR from Louisiana Tech who scored like 27 TDs or something one year?

    I think Austin scored like 7 TDs in the Orange Bowl against Clemson last year, or maybe 6, I can't remember exactly. Anyways, yeah, we need a big target for sure. Austin would make a better version of what they wanted out of Rainey this past season, he's faster and has incredible balance and vision.

    Yes indeed. And he actually had a decent rookie year with 61 receptions. But Pittsburgh (fans), expected more out of him (being a first round pick-13th overall), and made their displeasure known quit often.

    I don't know if the Steelers would pick a WR that early in the draft under the circumstances we have. A bigger need might be a TE, we don't know how long it will take for Miller to recover and he's getting up there.

    TE will be a bigger need earlier in the draft.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    2014 Draft

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB
    7a. Aaron Colvin, CB
    7b. Storm Johnson, RB

    A lot depends on what happens with Wallace. If he returns, then WR is not a huge need. If he does not return, WR becomes a major need.

    Wallace returning isn't a topic we need to spend more than one sentence on because it won't happen. It will be much more meaningful to discuss who joins Brown, Sanders, Cotchery and Burress. I think they try to keep Burress and get him at a vet minimum salary. Although not a fan he did perform in limited opportunities.

    Personally, I would be looking at adding a TE near the top of our draft. We have seen that with Haley this position is a real weapon.
