Today in the black-and-gold links article we take a look at how the deepest position in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft is wide receiver.

Let’s get to the news:

  • Could the Steelers be picking a wide receiver with their top pick in the 2nd round? It isn’t as crazy as it seems.

The Triple Take: WRs

In our first edition of “The Triple Take”, the Steelers Radio Network trio of Matt Williamson, Dale Lolley and Mike Prisuta give their takes on the top prospects in this year’s wide receiver class. If you want to hear the audio version of “The Triple Take”, click here.

Matt’s Take

Matt Williamson: “Simply put, this is an exceptional wide receiver class. It has star power with quite a few prospects that would go in the first round in any year. It has outstanding depth. In fact, teams that don’t have a major need at this position will be taking wide receivers in the middle rounds just because they fall in the draft and are the highest graded prospect on the board. They will be too good to pass up. This wide receiver class has prospects of all shapes and sizes. It has great testers. It has great producers. Whatever you are looking for from this receiver class, it should be available. Rarely do we see such a situation. Here are my top 10 prospects at this position.”

The Pittsburgh Steelers are doing their part, too.

The Steelers are among area businesses trying to feed such workers thanks to a partnership with Slice, an online and mobile ordering platform; and the non-profit Slice Out Hunger.

Since the Pizza vs. Pandemic campaign was launched March 21, the initiative has raised more than $260,000 while delivering 6,800 pizzas throughout the country.
