Mike Wallace is having one heck of a rookie year

Sixty Feet, Six Inches Correspondent IOctober 12, 2009

Steelers WR Mike Wallace, the team's third round selection in the 2009 NFL Draft, is having the best rookie year of any receiver from the current draft class.

The speedy Wallace has caught at least two passes in every game he's played this season, averaging 48.5 yards per game and 15.4 per catch. He had a 100 yard game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and added his first NFL TD against the Detroit Lions in week five.

Rated the 14th best receiver by most experts going into the draft, Wallace has more receptions so far than all of his draft mates. He has been so solid this season that the Steelers have officially moved him to the No. 3 receiver slot ahead of 2008 second rounder Limas Sweed and free agent acquisition Shaun McDonald.

I'm officially using this time to declare Wallace one of the rookie players to watch this year, and I may even recommend you fantasy football players out there who are hurting for receiver debt to give Wallace a look.
