2012 NFL Scouting Combine Open Thread: QBs and WRs Begin Workouts

These may not be the positions of immediate need for the Steelers in terms of the draft, but the fact WRs Emmanuel Sanders and Mike Wallace was taken in the third rounds in 2009 and 2010, respectively, and WR Antonio Brown was taken in the sixth round, it may be interesting to watch some of the projected middle round guys work out at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Baylor QB Robert Griffin III already made the news of the day, running an unofficial 4.41 and a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash. Assuming those are legit, they're absolutely sick numbers for a quarterback who made a Heisman-worthy impression this past season with his deep ball.

Considering QB Byron Leftwich's recent string of injuries, and QB Charlie Batch's age, along with the imminent departure of QB Dennis Dixon, it's not a stretch to suggest the Steelers look to bring in a back-up QB presence for the next few years.

Watching a few of those prospects could be a glimpse into the next Brian St. Pierre clone. And that's always a good time.
