    We would have to give up the #8 pick and a **** load of $. Ya it's not gonna happen. Unrealistic.

    Not for a first rounder......8th pick at that. He isnt worth that even knowing what he is capable of as an NFL player. He is fast, but not physical and not worthy of a 1st round pick. He's good because the Steelers have soo many other targets to open him up and Ben is throwing the ball to him. Pet him on another team and and I doubt he would have the same success.....

    I may argue that he is better then what we probably would get at number 8, but the giant contract he will get makes it unrealistic. He is exactly what we would need at WR though to compliment Marshall.

    Maybe if we picked in the 25 to 32 range, had two first round picks, and could trade Marshall for at least a second...

    Wallace is better than anything we're going to get with the 8th pick. You do this, but it won't matter since the Steelers will match.

    Only if WR was the only position in need. Not many teams can say that's true so no for Miami IMO.

    doubtful. I heard on NFL radio that the Pats are considering franchising Welker. I hope they do.

    Only if we can trade down and acquire extra picks. Maybe a 1st and 2nd for the 8th pick.

    We can probably get a good wide receiver like Muhamed Sanu of Rutgers with the 42nd pick, if that is what we want. Sanu didn't have the best Combine in terms of 40 yard dash, but he is one of those guys who plays better than individual stats. There should also be other WR's in the 2nd and 3rd round who are really good. Hopefully we won't need to draft a WR, and can get a guy like Reggie Wayne through free agency.

    If someone signs Wallace to a big deal there's nothing Pittsburgh can do. There hands are tied because of their cap situation. They've already restructured Roethlisberger, Woodley, Timmons, Colon, & Taylor's contracts plus cut Ward, Kemoeatu, Smith, McFadden, Battle & today either Farrior or Foote. There's not much else they can do. If a team signs Wallace to a deal that includes a huge base salary this year, Pitt is screwed.

    You have to use your pick to sign a restricted free agent. So if we trade down in the first it takes us out of the RFA market.
