Breaking News: Top receiver prospect Crabtree inactive for 10 weeks with foot stress fracture.

The Link is here:

Obviously this means Crabtree will not run any pre-draft drills, very similar to Johnathan Stewart's injury last offseason. He was taken at 13th overall but the reason I'm posting this is to pose this question: Is there any chance, any chance at all that Crabtree becomes a more realistic option now? I'm not sure, I mean a guy with Crabtree's talent is still likely to go top 15, but it becomes a major risk for the teams with top draft picks to pick a guy who has been injured and hasn't had any pre-draft evaluation.

I know that receiver isn't our most pressing need, but damn would Crabtree fit in with that "physical receiver" mentality. The guy is 6' 3'', about 210+ pounds, and refuses to go down after initial contact. His YAC is phenomenal along with his ability to make the big play. This won't be a question if Nate Washington does in fact stay with the Steelers, but if he doesn't the Steelers will be looking for a receiver at some point in the offseason.
