New, comments

Well, it may not have been the WR with the first name of Mike that Steelers fans were hoping for or expecting, but Pittsburgh nevertheless has selected a speedster WR with their second of three picks in this year's 3rd round. Mike Wallace posted the 2nd best 40 yard dash time at this year's combine, clocking in at 4.33 seconds, second to only Darrius Heyward-Bey. Nate Washington, you have officially been forgotten. The Wallace selection should fill the need of a return guy additionally, as Wallace likely will find his niche on special teams in year one as he learns to be a bit more physical and run better routes at the next level.

If you think about our potential WR corps in 2010 it's downright scary. Hines, Santonio, Limas, and now Mike Wallace. WOW. More on Wallace later, but for now, a hearty welcome to the Ole Miss WR.



So far, so good.
