Steelers wide receivers options for each round of the 2021 NFL Draft
By Tommy Jaggi
Round 4: Tutu Atwell, Tylan Wallace, Cade Johnson, Seth Williams, Tre Walker
If the Steelers miss out on a wide receiver in the first three rounds, I would almost bet the house that they address the position with one of their two fourth-round picks, as they will want a player who could at least serve as their number four wide receiver during the 2021 season. If they do go this route, these five players will be on their radar.
Tutu Atwell is a name I’ve seen mentioned as high as the late first round (which seems insane to me). By the looks of things, he will probably be off the board at this point. Atwell is tiny (5’9”, 165 lbs), but can create a ton of separation and to all of the work over the middle of the field.
Tylan Wallace and Seth Williams probably won’t test as terrific athletes, but they are physical wide receivers. Wallace is probably the better option if the Steelers are looking to replace JuJu’s role on offense. Cade Johnson will probably be restricted to playing the slot at the next level. He doesn’t have great athleticism, but he’s a good route runner with terrific ball skills. Meanwhile, Tre Walker is a small school receiver from San Diego State who really impressed in 2019.
