Not getting much attention

I've been reading posts on BTSC for a few weeks now and i love to hear what everyone has to say.  I'm begining to get a little more vocal now and I would like to talk about a position that has not gotten much attention.  The offseason talk has been focused mostly on our lines and I would like to point out that the depth at WR is not that deep at all.  I think this is a position that needs serious consideration since our best option behind our SB MVPS is Limas "Oopsy Daisy" Sweed.  I like the potential Sweed has and he is obviously getting open big time but hearing footsteps and dropping a ball is a little different than being wide open with no one around and dropping a ball.  A simple injury to Hines or Santonio can devastate our passing attack.  Both of them have had injuries that have sidelined in the past and Hines Ward is no spring chicken.  Don't get me wrong though i love Hines just as much as the next Steelers fan and hopes he plays forever but we all know that won't happen.  One day Hines will walk away from the game either when he is ready or forced by injuries, the man lays his body down for his team.  I think it is important that the Steelers draft a future starter while adding depth for this season.  There is no one better to learn the position from than Hines.  A little bit of Ward even rubbed off on Limas with his huge block in the AFC Championship Game.  Below are some guys that I like alot.  Let me know what you guys think.

 

Darrius Heyward-Bey - This guy is a blazer with good size.  Is very raw but has the potential to be a star.  There is a chance we can grab him at 32.

 

Juaquin Iglesias - I like this one the most.  I think he can become a very good possetion receiver.  He might be around in the third but not when we pick.  Possibly use our 3rd and 5th to move up.

 

Ramses Barden - This guy is huge.  He could dominate any corner he comes across and could be a great Red Zone target for Ben.  Maybe our 5th or 6th.

 

Keep in mind that even though each of them have their own speacial talents they each lack a characteristic the other has.
