In the past draft, the Steelers didn’t shake too much up as far as the wide receiver position goes. Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders are still going to be the starters. Both are small, shifty wide receivers that are threats for the end zone every time they touch the ball. Jerricho Cotchery will be the third receiver, as he will continue to be the mentor to the young receivers, as well as a sure handed option for Big Ben. Plaxico Burress could be a nice surprise for the Steelers with a full offseason under his belt. The new young receivers, Markus Wheaton and Justin Brown, will be asked to be apart of the offense in a limited role. This group will be intriguing to watch as they fight for 5 roster spots.
