Earlier in the 2023 season, you could have convinced me that the Pittsburgh Steelers could select a wide receiver as early as the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. Now I don't think that's very likely. Late in the season, George Pickens has been electrifying and Diontae Johnson has severed as a solid counterpart.

This means that the Steelers might be able to wait to address the receiver position toward the end of the draft. If they do, Sam Wiglusz could be an option. Mike Tomlin is no stranger to taking small-school, undersized receivers from the MAC conference, and Wiglusz fits the bill.

After being buried on Ohio State's crowded wide receiver room for three years, Wiglusz transferred to Ohio. In his first season with the Bobcats, he recorded 73 receptions for 877 yards and 11 touchdowns. His production came back down to earth in 2023, but he still managed over 1,500 yards and 129 receptions over the past two seasons.

At this point in the draft, teams are throwing darts on the wall and hope they stick. At 5'11'' and 188 pounds, Sam Wiglusz can play on the outside or in the slot while carving out a role on special teams. Wiglusz would be far from guaranteed to make the final roster, but the Steelers could use depth at the wide receiver position.
