Competing for the job: Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton

Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant are both fairly new to the team, Wheaton in his second year, and Bryant coming in as a rookie.  Both men have a chance to win the starting job in Pittsburgh, with Emmanuel Sanders departure this off-season.

The Steelers have Antonio Brown and Lance Moore already in the line-up, but now they have to figure out who they want to put on the opposite of Brown to make their passing game more complete.  I think when the question of completion from the Wide Receivers comes into play, the thought process has to be, what does this guy give us that we don’t already have from our other starters?

I think when you evaluate that, along with the other Receivers (Moore and Brown) already in the lineup, the answer you have to go with at Receiver is Martavis Bryant.  Bryant gives them the deep threat ability that the other two don’t feature.  The deep ball is Bryant’s best quality, and while Brown and Moore could make plays down the field, they are better off running shorter, and more precise routes.

Also, Bryant has the size that none of those guys have.  Bryant comes in at about 6’4, and is the big receiver the Steelers have talked about bringing in this off-season.

While it may seem crazy that the Steelers would start a fourth round pick at Receiver, it makes it a bit more reasonable when you consider that Bryant was a projected second round pick coming into the draft.

Winner: Martavis Bryant

  1. The Korean people pay much attention to social classification; therefore,
    if you are invited for meal, you should bring a gift to the host.
    The British often use fork and knife for most
    of their dishes except for soup. Wyatt is lobbying that this issue needs to be taken serious and is of great need to eliminate
    the number of cockfighting rings in West Virginia.
