So here's what's bothering me. Santonio Holmes, the Super Bowl hero, and legitimate #1 receiver is worth a fifth round pick, 155 overall, to the Steelers organization. Ted Ginn Jr, a speed demon and nothing else, is also worth a fifth round pick, 145 overall. Logically, this means that in terms of value, they're equal. Of course, if you ask any casual fan, they'd tell you of the huge discrepancy there. They're similar in age and physique, but that's it. Despite playing only twelve games this year, Santonio is a far better asset as a receiver because he makes big catches (see his week 17 catch a couple of years ago to beat the Ravens, the Super Bowl catch, and more), while Ginn's only other quality of note is his return ability, of which there is no doubt he's explosive. But look at the numbers.
What does this discrepancy tell us?
Steelers FO really pulled a rush job.
