The Pittsburgh Steelers have had an interesting draft to this point. With their first two picks, they got younger and faster on defense, and with their final pick of day two they added some blazing speed to the offense with the selection of Kent State wide receiver /running back / kick returner Dri Archer.
Although he is small, he does play a physical game and will not shy away from contact. Good hands, he looks the part of an explosive slot receiver that can take the top off the defense. Of course, he will have to stay healthy and demonstrate the ability to take the pounding in the NFL.
On top of the obvious size limitations and questions, he also has some performance questions coming from a smaller school and conference. He will also have to adjust to a position change of sorts, as he was a running back in college and will not likely be able to withstand the punishment from running between the tackles in the NFL.
