Steelers wide receivers options for each round of the 2021 NFL Draft
By Tommy Jaggi
Round 2: Terrace Marshall, Rondale Moore, Kadarius Toney, D’Wayne Eskridge
Wide receivers are one of the most coveted positions in the NFL, so I wouldn’t be surprised if several of the above names were already off the board early in the second round. However, these are the four receivers I would consider taking in round two for Pittsburgh.
Terrace Marshall is a tall, lean receiver who is a very smooth mover for his size (6’3”). At 20 years old, he’s one of the youngest players in the draft class and was a former 5-star recruit coming out of high school. He’s not a finished product yet, but the upside to be a go-to guy is there.
Rondale Moore, Kadarius Toney, and D’Wayne Eskridge are all cut from the same cloth. All three are a bit undersized with questionable ball skills at times, but they are lightning-fast and electric with the ball in their hands. These three players are brilliant after the catch and almost always make the first defender miss. Of this group of second-round prospects, Eskridge is the most likely to be available to Pittsburgh, as he just turned 24 years old and is coming from a smaller football program at Western Michigan. All of these players, however, would add an instant boost to Pittsburgh’s potentially JuJu-less offense.
