However, reflexively naysaying every move the organization makes isn't reflective of independent thought...
Glad to hear you are continuing to work on understanding the game more...for the most part, I think that this community strives for the same thing...

The rest of the draft was solid.
That's what Archer is...RB/WR. The Steelers aren't going to line him up & try to make him a work horse between tackles. He is going to be the top of the "I" in "20" series personnel to create mismatches. Johnson will be the guy staying in to block. Archer will be matched up on a LB or S if the defense stays in base. They will run PA or shift him out. If the defense starts to counter to nickel the Steelers can do the same or run outside zone, sprint draw, or screen. When you go "10" series personnel...Archer goes in the slot for reverse or PA patterns with Bell in the backfield. He can make the offense dynamic. You create identification nightmares between snaps for DCs trying to put their right personnel packages on the field. WHATEVER package they run out...BB will counter with an audible. That creates the "chess match". With the weapons in place for BB...There is a very high ceiling this offense could obtain.
Archer will get a helmet gameday because of his return ability. He will be worked to try & take over PR too. Archer has RB vision & great change of direction to go along with his homerun speed. What he also has is body control similar to a receiver & looks capable of running the whole route tree. 99 catches for 1,194 yards & 12 TDs over his college career to go along with 325/2,342 & 24 TDs rushing. When he is on the field...DCs have to guess. As long as the Tavon Austins, Dexter McClusters, Ace Sanders, & Darren Sproles of the world show they could do it in the NFL...There is nothing stopping Archer from being productive. Since he now is a Steeler...I'm all in
