Steelers WR Breakdown: Complete Position Evaluation and Depth Chart Analysis

Emmanuel Sanders caught a career-high 44 passes in 2012.

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost a speedy, high-impact wide receiver in 2013. Then they tried to replenish the position in the third and sixth rounds of the NFL draft.

Markus Wheaton and Justin Brown heard their names called by the Steelers on draft weekend. Wheaton, in particular, will try to help fill the void left by Mike Wallace, who signed with the Miami Dolphins.

This formula worked pretty well for the Steelers three years ago. They traded Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes in 2010, then drafted Emmanuel Sanders in the third round and Antonio Brown in the sixth round.

Brown and Sanders joined Wallace to make up the formidable Young Money Crew. With Wallace gone, it's a crew of two.

Those two need to elevate their performances for the Steelers to return to the playoffs in 2013.

Wheaton, Justin Brown, undrafted free agents and veterans will battle to fill out the depth chart behind Brown and Sanders.

Here's a look at what the Steelers' wide receiver depth chart will look like when everything is sorted out.

Unless otherwise noted, statistics are from NFL.com.
