    I have to agree, this is a little more like it. I d say he has a higher diva probability than bust probability.

    Based on what? His amazing college career? Teams passed up a 6 foot 4 guy who runs a 4.4 for a reason. That doesn't happen unless there are major deficiencies in his game. That screams project. Maybe the Steelers can get this guy to play up to his athletic gifts but I just don't see it happening any time soon. Too much to work on.

    2015 NFL Mock Draft

    May 15, 2014.

    Round 1) Pittsburgh Steelers: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State

    The Steelers want to land a big receiver for Ben Roethlisberger. They took Martvais Bryant, but there's a reason he dropped all the way to the fourth round. The 2015 receiver class is a promising one, so Pittsburgh may decide to go wideout in the first round if Bryant doesn't do much.

    you said a 3+ year project. thats what i find absurd

    of course his game needs work, most WRs do coming out of college. you obviously dont think the guy will make it, no biggie. i feel the same about McCullers

    time will tell

    Wouldn't be a first. I just don't see him being more than a redzone target period. But, if he does eventually start it will take him until his 3rd season to get it. My opinion.

    I agree that Bryant's game still needs significant work, but I'll still take Bryant 10 times out of 10 compared to Derek Moye. Moye's scrappy, but limited athletically, whereas Bryant could be a monster if he is able to put everything together. Just staple the kid to Antonio Brown, tell him to work like AB84 works, and watch him blossom eventually. For this year, though, it will be Brown as the flanker, Wheaton as the split end, and Moore in the slot, with Bryant learning. It shouldn't be a 3 year deal, though. At this time next year, we could be looking at Brown as the flanker, Bryant as the split end, and Wheaton in the slot. I don't see possible starting split end potential in Moye like I see in Bryant. If Moye ever had to start for us, something has gone horribly wrong.

    we drafted him in the fourth... why should we expect more than a 4th round talent in his first year?

    We shouldn't expect more than 4th round progress, only fans that don't like the pick or don't like him for some reason believe he should be working his way into the lineup ahead of any schedule for a 4th round pick.

    I hear ya, and see where you are coming from. No doubt Bryant has a higher ceiling but man I love the way Moye plays the game. In every preseason game he was running like he was running for his life. He was determined, made plays and I loved the "scappiness" he displayed. My hope is Moye really steps up this season because honestly right now as they stand I believe him to be the better WR.

    I think it's the Steelers who are setting that tone by talking about him being a future starter.
