    Steal of the draft? Too early to say. But he's ONE of the steals of the draft.

    Yeah, me too. He was on my radar for our 1st round pick. I think he’s going to be very good.

    Guy is going to be a monster. He’ll be the best receiver on the team in a year and will eclipse Claypools rookie season.

    Did the Steelers give her a physical before signing the contract?

    Knew we'd get him. That's why I hit the pick on draft day.

    Pat on back

    I'll be that guy...

    Meh. it's two days into training camp. Remember how everyone thought that Stefan Logan was going to be Devin Hester after the preseason he had? And that was two months of work.

    Pickens could end up being the best wideout of the draft. He could end up being Limas Sweed. We have no idea at this point.

    Yea. We were on the same page the moment Pickens got drafted. I think it's safe to say he's healed from his ACL tear.

    Can we at least wait until the pillows come off the helmets to call him the steal of the draft?

    It's early yet. I will admit the highlights I have seen have been impressive.

    Pickens could make Johnson expendable. The guy is a freak. Glad he's a Steeler.

    Sadly I have to agree with you. Been a big DJ fan from the start but if he’s looking for top dollar, I don’t think the Steelers will do it. Pickens makes him expendable.

    I hope they can work a deal out with him, I think him, Pickens and Claypool would be filthy. I’m expecting a big year from Claypool out of the slot.

    Difficult not to be excited about the possibilities with Pickens even though it's only training camp. It appears that the pro stage isn't too big for him. I hope he continues to trend upward. If this group looks fine without DJ, then they can tag him. He's not worth $20 mil a year, He's not a top 10 NFL receiver. I wasn't crazy about what Watt did or that they paid him, but he's the best in the league at what he does.
