What this pick does is give the Steelers another dimension to throw at teams, as they spend the week planning to face them. Remember ARE? He was not a great receiver, and certainly not the best on the board at the time. He was never going to unseat Ben as the QB. So why take him? Because every week, the opposing DC had to gameplan for the "what if". And that is a very legit concern when it comes to Archer. It is not that the team will put the ball in his hands every time he is on the field, but the D has to prepare for that every time they see him on the field.
