With a void left by Mr. Big Chest, the Steelers went out and selected Diontae Johnson in the early third round. In my opinion, this selection didn’t make much sense.
Just last year they spent similar draft capital (2.28) on James Washington, a receiver who passed the century mark three straight years in college while also totaling 33 tugs over that span. He wasn’t given much of a shot last season due to the dynamic duo of AB and JJSS hogging a good bit of targets, so I doubt they’ve given up on him yet. Not to mention, the guy is just half a year older than the recently acquired Diontae.
