The Pittsburgh Steelers’ recent draft classes have been nothing short of surprising when pressed into duty.
Sometimes it will be a good surprise like Mike Wallace emerging as a premier deep threat in his rookie season. Other times it will be a bad surprise like Limas Sweed dropping passes on his way to the unemployment line.
Whatever the case, you can rest assured that players from this year’s rookie class will be on each end of the spectrum. Of course, none may do so as notably as Wallace or Sweed, but there will be surprises nonetheless.
Some men will emerge as 16-game starters, while others will see limited snaps. One player in particular could be up for Pro Bowl honors. Read on to find out which incoming rookie fits these descriptions.
