Losing Antonio Brown was a huge blow to this unit, but it was a move that needed to be made. Fortunately, the Steelers may have found some young talent who can help fill the void left by the former 4-time first-team All-Pro receiver.

JuJu Smtih-Schuster struggled a bit in his third NFL season in 2019 but was dealing with injuries. However, Diontae Johnson and James Washington flashed potential last year despite poor quarterback play.

In addition, rookie Chase Claypool not only offers a big target but his speed could prove to be beneficial for a team lacking explosive plays down the field. The Steelers appear to be young and deep on paper, but they are one of the most unproven groups in the AFC North.
