Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Steelers will draft Texas A&M’s Mike Evans if he’s still there when the team is on the clock.
I like Beckham as a receiver and think he would be a good fit for the Steelers. But, after talking with Lance Moore yesterday, I was reminded just how small the Steelers’ corps of receivers really is. If they are going to draft a wide receiver on the first round, they are going to draft a receiver who is unlike what they have — a tall one. Beckham is right around 6-feet, but that’s not what they are seeking. Believe me, if Mike Evans is available, they will draft him. But they do not expect him to be there at 15.
