It's no secret that the Pitt receiving corps underachieved big time a season ago, and Street is one guy that must step up this season.
With Mike Shanahan being held out of practice, Street has done a lot to open up some eyes.
Street has stepped up his game this spring and has especially impressed wide receivers coach Bobby Engram, who told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Paul Zeise:
And it is encouraging to see that Devin wants to be a consistent playmaker, a guy we can throw the ball to and a go-to guy. I want to continue to raise the level of play of all of them, and this, being our first spring, is a great opportunity for them to establish themselves.
Devin has the skill set to be a go-to guy, but I am looking for the mental and physical. So it is, 'What is his mentality, is he willing to do the extra work, do you want the ball?' It is all earned around here, you have to earn it every day by the way you perform, and these guys are working hard to earn their spots.
Someone needs to step up and become a playmaker, and Street will certainly be given the opportunity to do so.
