  • Willie Reid-My sleeper WR

    I'm very excited to have Willie healthy and ready to return kicks this year, but I think he might surprise as a WR. He was solid in pre season and TC last year catching balls and I honestly feel he could see the field more at WR.

    Potential WR depth chart by end of season:
    Ward
    Holmes
    Reid
    Washington
    Baker

    Ced gets cut.

    I know it might seem like a stretch, but does anyone else see the potential in this kid as a slot WR?

        i think willie can be a straight baller for us, fo sho

        but i think if he does well returning the ball, we dont use him that much as a receiver to keep him healthy

        thanks to steel man for the fresh sig

          NO more Sant returning, most muffed punts, though he did take one back but still, find somone to return

          didnt Taylor and Colocgh return at one point i thought Colocgh was decent at it

              no noone but ARE did punt returns and Colclough was never good at KR. Taylor and Morgan were. but for some reason Colclough kept ending up back there.


              Silverback....still the best.

                Does anyone think that maybe with the practice he got last year and some coaching this year in the offseason, Holmes might actually be good at kick returns this season? Its just a thought really. I dont know how many reps he got in preseason doing that last year, and now he's made lots of mistakes that he can hopefully learn from. We saw at the end of the season that he could take one to the house, so there might be some potential there.

                Im all for Reid getting a shot, cause thats why we drafted him and he knows how to do it. But I have to wonder if Holmes made any improvements there since last year. I wouldnt be suprised to see him starting back in the endzone to return a kick during one of the preseason games this year and having half of steeler country shouting at the tv because of it.

                  Last preseason, Reid was flatout our best receiver, he caught everything and was dangerous every time he had thte ball in his hands. Watching him return punts in college, especially against PSU, gets me excited as I cringe every punt that Holmes touches.

                    I hope Dallas Baker does something but I bet you he gets cut in training camp

                        I liken this years draft to last years draft

                        Charles Davis=Spaeth
                        Spaeth will make the team so we can cut Tuman

                        Orien Harris=Ryan Mcbean

                        I think we will again have many cuts after the fourth round. I hope Dallas Baker and Gary Russel make the team but i think they will go the way Fred Gibson and Cedric Humes

                          I still like Nate at the slot.

                          If Willie can stay healthy and that's a big if, then I think he can be a great kr/pr. Kind of like Jermaine Lewis was for the Ravens, I think Willie could be like that to the steelers

                            yeah I agree with you there. I do think that it might be a bit of risk having him play too much WR, but I do think he has potential there. If he does a great job as a KR and a PR then we might not want to risk it.

                              I don't think that is going to happen. I am actually very excited about the whole draft, but especially the last day. The DL coach said that McBean is a project, but he has a better motor and lot more motivation than Orien Harris did.

                              Spaeth had great production in college and likely would have gone a lot sooner if not for the shoulder injury, which is supposed to have healed up nicely.

                              Gary Russell is someone that I am excited about. I think that he will have his motivation issues worked out and really want to play hard and get in shape. The guy had a 1,200 yard season with 18 touchdowns while sharing the load with Maroney, and in the Big Ten no less. That's impressive and it far outweighs anything that Humes ever did. I think Russell will pan out nicely.

                              As far as Baker, I don't know. But he looked very good in the national championship game and you don't call someone "the touchdown maker" for just anything.

                              I'm happy. I wasn't at first but I am getting more and more so. I can't wait to see what LaBeau will do with Timmons and Woodley. These guys bring a huge presence to the special teams immediately, but also on 3rd down when we can allow Harrison and Haggans to get more rested.

                              I'm very excited.. Let's go Steelers!

                              Thanks to Jakey for the sweet sig
