Brown can be highly productive inside working off the hash. That is where he belongs...Working under the X or opposite. Brown outisde doesn't force a S to the hash...He plays CF.
I hope that some good times from some of the smaller guys pushes a big guy down to the Steelers, maybe in the second. A tall, fast WR would be great, but I would sacrifice a bit on speed to find a big WR that presents matchup difficulties and that compliments Brown.
Stedman Bailey is IMO the best receiver in the draft if you are looking for an outside receiver. He doesn't have the blazing speed but he has great body control and catches everything thrown at him. He understands how to run routes as well. Tavon Austin is the best play maker in the draft but he is not an outside receiver. Put him in our system in place of Rainey and watch the points go up.
LETS GO MOUNTAINEERS!
Here We Go Steelers!
22 OLB Eli Harold UVA
56 CB Kevin Johnson Wake
87 RB TJ Yeldon Bama
121 TE Jeff Heuerman OSU
160 CB Darryl Roberts Marshall
199 G Mark Glowinski WVU
212 OLB Kyle Emanuel NDS
239 WR Mario Alford WVU
Still think Hopkins may be the best WR is this draft.
Very productive in college
Good size 6'1+
Great Hands. Mayock said he probably has the best hands in the draft. He made a great catch on a very low pass at the combine.
He FIGHTS for the ball and catches it at it's HIGHEST point with this hands (not his body) <---- Something Mike Wallace could learn from
Decent (not great) speed 4.5 flat.
