Straight from Robinson's question to Colbert's response:
Q: Has Ben (Roethlisberger) ever come to you and asked for a tall receiver tan (sic) than a shorter receiver (like wide receiver Lance Moore)?There it is on paper. Not that Roethlisberger, or even Colbert, would mind if the Steelers did get an opportunity to draft 6-foot-5 Antonio Brown (if such a human exists). The 2014 NFL Draft class is stacked with wide receivers, and could have as many as 14 of them selected in the first two rounds - the most since 2005.
A: “No, he hasn’t. Everybody wants big, fast – but guys get open, too. Guys that know how to get open. Our best receiver is 5’10”. I’m sure teams would rather have him than a big guy. So, size, sure it’s important and there are plenty of big receivers in this draft, but really if you get caught up just looking for a specific, you’ll miss out on a good player.”
If there is a year for tall receivers in Pittsburgh, this is it. Just remember, though, Colbert didn't hear that from Roethlisberger.
