1. Nathaniel "Tank" Dell, WR, Houston

Tank Dell was one of the most fun players to watch in this class.  The Houston receiver would make a good day two pick for a team looking for a dynamic, slot receiver, with YAC ability. This is a good skill set that’d be a valuable addition to the Steelers offense.

Dell was a massive part of Houston’s offense as he doubled the next closest player in targets, receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns in each of the last two seasons. He’s also amongst the most productive receivers in college football as he went for over 1300 yards in 2022 and 2021.

He did everything for that Houston offense. He could win vertically and track the ball on deep routes, he could win in the short and intermediate area with his route running, and he could create extra yards with how dynamic he was with the ball in his hands.

It was apparent watching him that he was simply at another level athletically than his opponents. His selling point in the NFL will be how dynamic he is with the ball in his hands.

The thing that holds Dell back from being a first-round caliber receiver is his competition level and size. Playing in the American he was at another level athletically than everyone else, which won’t be the case in the NFL. Dell would make for good value for the Steelers in the third round if he’s still on the board.
