I have a feeling Payne is a smokescreen and might drop ala Andrew Billings a few drafts ago

Also, the Virginia Tech trio are all in play.

Alabama, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech so far in play.

I wouldn't rule out Tim Settle if the board falls a certain way... he's an underclassman, apparently looked totally different at pro day in a good way, it's a position of need, and Tomlin/Colbert were at the pro day-- it's not like they think they're going to get Tremaine Edmunds (they don't even have ammo to move up far enough for him in a trade).

I’m told Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin had dinner with receiver James Washington and safety Tre Flowers last night. http://draftanalyst.com/oklahoma-state-pro-day

Am I the only one who is unimpressed with James Washington the NFL prospect? JW the college player was great, but Washington reminds me of a slower, tighter Jeff Janis. Kinda plays stuck to the ground and isn’t fluid enough to get open sconsistently in the NFL. He’s not going to outrun anyone- is going to depend on hard work. I’m not even sure his catching is all that natural. Don’t get it.

im not a big fan either but if theres anything at all to give the Steelers the benefit of the doubt on, its probably WR prospects.

I am hoping that either Anthony Miller or James Washington is there at the end of the 3rd round.

I think the Steelers spent a lot of time looking at tape of Rudolph and it was hard to ignore all of the long passes to Washington.

I know people look at his so-so 40 time of 4.54 and say, he is a deep threat? But the 40 can be a bad barometer sometimes in determining a deep ball artist. Washington can be 30 yards down the field and the CB is there with him stride for stride but then James is able to pull away with those powerful long strides. It is one thing to have that great start or burst, but quite another to have an extra gear at the end and being able to accelerate away from people. This is what I saw when I watched him. I am not comparing him to Bolt but you look at how many people would jump out to a great lead on him only to watch him accelerate by in the middle and end of the sprint.

Washington is built more like a RB, seemed to work out well when we drafted JuJu last season, also, has pretty good hands and ball tracking deeper down the field. More trouble with shorter passes but I think that is more to inexperience. I think our new WR coach would be thrilled to get him and coach him up. I see Washington as Sammie Coates done right and they probably are looking for that deep threat to replace Bryant after this season.
