    Don’t know the first thing about Johnson but wish him well as a Steeler

    Anybody got an idea why Winovich has fallen this far? I was sure they were picking him

    I would guess the OP was based on Johnson's lack of production last season. Johnson is fast, but from what I read, he is often neutralized with press coverage. Anybody who starts thinking Antonio Brown when they hear about a guy with a quick change of direction and excellent speed needs to remember that Brown is also very strong. Defenders who try to hand fight with him lose and lose consistently.

    If they were going to go wide receiver, Hakeem Butler seems like a much better choice at that point. Terry McLauren from Ohio State was still available, too.

    Unless I missed him looking through the lists, neither CBS nor the Sporting News has him among the top 100 players in the draft.

    He is inconsistent. He disappears in games

    And that excitement was bought at a ridiculously-high price.

    Expert ratings only mean so much, but, there were 20 higher rated WR's available.

    Could have traded way down and got him.
    Or, pick someone else and pick him later.

    Wow... what a great, great, great move to replace Antonio Brown!!! I am psyched up.

    The Steelers only used a 3rd round pick to select a 5th round talent. Genius man... pure genius. This made up "need pick" reminded me of the time they took Troy Edwards in the first round of the 1999 draft.

    Johnson would have easily been available in the 4th round and most likely 5th round. This is a desperately ridiculous reactive pick to losing Antonio Brown.

    I'm thinking Johnson must have some compromising pics of a few people in the Front Office. Make no mistake, picking this particular player, so early in the 3rd round, is an embarrassment.

    It's not fickle to praise one pick and criticize another. Some picks are good and some are not. This one was not. Johnson would have been available much later.

    Of course, the damn Patriots ended up getting Winovich. Winovich at 66 and Hakeem Butler with the second third-rounder would have been a much better way to go.

    We drafted a slow midget. You telling me he's better than Hakeem Butler or Miles Boykin?? Johnson is tiny & too slow to stretch the coverage, Butler & Boykin are taller & faster ....NOT HAPPY!!!!!!

    One would think if you miss out on Winovich, you'd go for Ximines!!?? OMG, we missed-out again ...OK we better start trading-up to get somebody before they all disappear!!!!

    Well, if the Steelers want to motivate him they can just show him this thread.

    Been watching some clips since the pick, I think they are hoping he has some AB in him. He's a playmaker for sure. Good freelancer too which is obviously a good compliment to Ben.

    I think the kid can play. I wasn't really wanting a wr at all but knew we would take one. I like the kid. he fights for the ball and some say he is the best route runner in the draft. that is underrated. you want the receiver to be where he is suppose to be

    I'm so mad & disappointed right now. At the very least I would've been happy with a Darius Slayton. Even Baltimore got a speedster. I'm just curious ...did Hakeem Butler & Miles Boykin rob a bank recently?? Nobody's touching them with a 10 foot pole...

    According to the YouTube highlight reel, unless my eyes is lying to me Butler & Boykin's highlights is far more impressive than Johnson's. I hope your right tho...

    No hate for Diontae. Just the pick when D was a higher need.
