Sarcasm? He's on pace for 1000+ yards as a rookie with guys like Gilbert, Denucci and Dalton throwing to him for most of the season.

Yeah, they throw the ball around a lot in Dallas. Anyone can g et 1,000 yards there.

When I watch him play, he doesn't have great hands, looks slow and doesn't break tackles like he did in college.

Hes mediocre, not a high ceiling.

Was so wrong on Higgins. He is going to be great with Burrow. Missed on Claypool too, Steelers have tbe magic touch with drafting WRs; Juju, Diontae Johnson, and now Claypool.

The Steelers' success is waaaaaay bigger than that group. Their ability to draft WRs is f**king insane. Check out this list. This is every single WR they've drafted under GM Kevin Colbert. Emmanuel Sanders AND Antonio Brown in the same draft...

2019-Diontae Johnson (3rd round)

2018-James Washington (2nd round)

2017-JuJu Smith-Schuster (2nd round)

Member Milestone: This is post number 2,100 for JaggedJ.
And they haven't even used a 1st since 2000.

Is it drafting, scheme or development? Or a combination of them all?

It's always interesting how some teams just have the magic tough in certain positions.

It's impossible to have coaches/scouts who can nail every position, but they definitely have someone there who knows how to pick/develop WR.

Personally I think alot of it is scheme. They basically run exclusively out of 4 wide sets. Throwing a bunch of short quick passes.

Not saying the guys aren't good cause they are. In fact I wanted Washington over Pettis and Smith-Schuster when he came out. But it's easy to put up numbers in that kind of offense. Well, if Ben is healthy anyway.

Yeah thats kinda what I meant when I said they have the magic touch. Johnson should be bolded as well. AB clone. 5'10, 185. Out of that football factory Toledo. Lol. Leads them in targets, second in yds, 4TDS.
Man I haven't seen that name Limas Sweed in a long time

Checking in on this list.

Hamler (out for season), Mims, and Reagor all have battled injuries. Ruggs.. Career over.

Outside of those, the rest of the group is doing quite well.

Shocked Jefferson didn't make your list. He seemed like a safe bet coming out of LSU as a solid slot wideout at worse. Still, your list is strong and looking good.

Great pick on Mooney though

Truth be told, I just didn't watch him as much as the others. Indeed that was a miss. Mooney badly needs a better guy throwing him the ball. He cooks even the best corners and they can't get it to him..

Mooney has been good. even last year he was beating 1 on 1 coverage but didnt have anyone throwing him the ball.

Personally i was never a fan of ruggs even with the whole webzone going gaga over him. This WR class was loaded im so happy we didn't get Raegor or ruggs both are huge busts
