    I'd really like to see Dallas Baker make this team as the 5th WR. I don't think Willie Reid makes the cut this year; he hasn't done jack to contribute since he's been drafted. I'd like to see Baker rise to the challenge.

    Top, I agree. I think Willie Reid had his chance and he blew it......He hasn't shown nothing as a kick returner.....I know he flashed at times at WR in camp and pre-season.....But I don't think he makes the team....I think Dallas Baker will win the 5th spot....

    I see the top five WRs being

    Hines Ward
    Santonio Holmes
    Nate Washington
    Limas Sweed
    Dallas Baker

    I also only seeing 4 RBs making this team....

    I have a feeling Ryan Mundy makes the team also ...I'm starting to really like this pick....I forgot he played at Michigan and when reading his bio it clicked in my head that was Ryan Mundy that played at Michigan a few years ago...I remember watching him at Michigan...The West Virginia thing threw me off....Wasn't sure it was the same guy...lol

    Didn't say he was jack bag... But Washington does have NFL experience and knows the playbook....So he has leg up on Sweed for the time being...

    i said all that because i thought the only way to get him was with the first round pick.......... washington has never impressed me, even though he got better when we got worse last year......... limas has actually played big in big time games, and has played pretty good competition in his college career

    Dude I didn't have a problem with the Limas Sweed pick...I'm not saying Nate is better then him...Just saying rookie WR's don't have an impact usually in their rookies years...Yes Randy Moss had a great rookie year...But I think its safe to say Sweed won't have that type of rookie year...Plax had a very bad rookie year....

    The good thing we can bring Sweed along slowly and just put him out there in multiple WR sets....Still Nate will have an edge on Sweed with NFL experience and knowing the play-book...Hopefully Sweed catches on fast and nails the 3rd WR spot....But I'll settle for him being comfortable and making some plays as the 4th WR in his rookie year...

    Rookie RBs do make impacts their rookie years...So I wouldn't bet against that....But Parker will be the starter at the start of this season and I could see him remaining the starter all year...Now in 09?

    I agree Willie Reid has done nothing. Cedric Wilson getting released gave Reid a shot to stay on the team. I was excited when the Steelers drafted Baker last year, I really liked him at Florida. But, his lack of playing time last pre-season said a lot IMO. I know coming in his speed was not up to par, so I'm not too sold on his prospects as a pro.

    The Steelers did sign Dorian Bryant (Purdue) as a UDFA. He's a guy I could see making this team. I really like him and I'm surprised nobody took a shot on him. He smallish like Reid and is a dangerous return man. I'd say he more polished as a wide receiver than Reid. I think he's certainly good enough to make a team as a 4th or 5th receiver/return man. Keep an eye on him. There's always the chance they carry 6 receivers, and if James Farrior is cut WR, CB, or S should get the extra roster spot.

    Also, I added the UDFA's the Steelers signed and expanded a bit on a few things and added a depth chart.
