Thread: Timing right for Steelers to draft tall WR

    And you have Bell in the backfield, who runs with patience and can also catch passes...

    Spaeth is only signed for one more season...
    If we go O, I want Ebron. Amaro's maturity has been called into question. I'm not sure if Evans game translates to the pro game.

    Round 2 (46) Pittsburgh Steelers: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State

    The Steelers missed Mike Wallace in 2013 and could use more receiving weapons for Todd Haley's offense, especially when you consider that Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery are entering free agency.

    The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Adams has a good combination of size and speed. He was extremely reliable for Derek Carr and gets open via quickness, size and route-running. In 2013, Adams dominated with 131 receptions for 1,718 yards and 24 touchdowns. He was one of the best receivers in college football. Adams has the ability to make receptions over defenders with the skills to get separation. As a freshman in 2012, he had 102 catches for 1,312 yards and 14 scores.

    the value at WR in the 2nd makes me believe the steelers will go elsewhere in the 1st, but I certainly won't cry if Evans is the pick.

    WR times at the combine are going to be inreresting, as always.

    Shouts out to Marqise, (Inglewood,...Fight on) but Brown has solidified and earned his position as the smaller, athletically gifted, hardworking and productive lightning bolt playmaker type of WR for this team.

    If we go receiver,...take the big, nasty, determined and talented WR with a lb's heart in the 1st,...Mike Evans. If not,...go Defense in the 1st as we should in EVERY other round this year.

    Oh that's weird, happened a day after I switched my mock. Adams makes sense. We need too much help on D to go after a WR with Vincent Jackson ceiling or a gamble at WR. It makes more sense to grab either Dennard or Mosley, then address WR in the second. Adams is well rounded. If it wasn't for the talent he played against, he would be a first round lock. He does all the little things well, big, great hands, faster than advertised. I read what the scouts have said, watched a bit of film on the guy...looks like a Steeler kind of WR.

    I think Ebron could make a huge impact. I've watch some of his college games and he can't be covered by LBs or DBs. Physically he creates huge mismatch problems.
    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!

    I LOVE Ebron, I have Amaro 4th after Ebron, ASJ, Niklas

    Amaro has Aaron Hernandez or Dallas Clark like potential but he really struggles to make catches in traffic
