You mean #6 pick plus a LARGE contract, I think not, even if we trade back I still say NO.

They are both relatively same height, but I feel like Blackmon would have a better shot in a jump ball scenario due to being able to use his weight to box out defenders.

Long story short they are both great in their own right, but I prefer Blackmon. And the 6th pick, while not a top 5 pick, is still worth plenty and you have a lot more options with it. I just think the 6th overall pick would be a ransom for the Steelers.
My math teacher was lying to me all along...

Good question, but I would probably say no.

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

Yes. He's a dynamic player who is still young and does not have the "could very likely fail" label rookies-to-be-have. His returns are what you would expect AND want out of a top 6 pick.

Wallace maybe best down the field but he certainly can run all the routes. blackmon I would say has better hands and is more physical.

I certainly think if we are choosing between Blackmon and Wallace, Wallace should have a serious look. Blackmon could be a bust. Wallace we know can succeed in the NFL. But this isn't the case, so no we can do alot of things with that pick giving it up should be one of them. We need to build for the future, not spend to win now.

Picks are always given on a player regardless if the player was acquired through the draft or through other means, so "giving up" a pick is not really an argument against getting Wallace. What really matters comparing him with all the qualities of the other potential players you could possibly get with that pick. "Drafting" Mike Wallace with the 6th overall pick is an alternative, and a viable one, IMO.

Zero picks.
If he's a FA...fine.
The sixth pick needs to be used in whatever fashion to get us a proper ball chucker for the next decade.

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

He's certainly worth a look if Skins are considering a WR at #6 anyway.

Mike Wallace - Pittsburgh Steelers - 2012 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com

Restricted free agent Mike Wallace says contract talks are "ongoing" with the Steelers, but conceded Wednesday that he may not return to Pittsburgh due to the team's salary cap situation."[Pittsburgh is] where I would like to be, but we all know that it is a business," said Wallace. "... So if I have to go elsewhere, you know Pittsburgh will always be in my heart, but I have to do what I have to do." The Steelers are trying to sign Wallace to a long-term deal in order to avoid extending him a first-round tender. He is not expected to be franchise tagged. Feb 22 - 3:44 PM

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

If we had multiple first round picks, then i would send a mid to late rounder for him no question. Top 10 pick? No, I would only use a 6th as a barginning chip for a QB.

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

No!!!!!!!!! Hopefully this is the old way that the Redskins did business. I say we get a QB and some o-linemen before we start chasing free agent wr's. However, Wallace would look real good in a New England uniform and he's just what they need. I see New England making a play for him.

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

Absolutely not. He has complimentary receivers in Pittsburg, a good TE, a QB that holds the ball way too long to find him running around down field. No idea if Wallace can be a #1 WR, which if you give up a #6 pick, that is what you are going to have to pay him too. Remember the last complimentary WR we got from Pittsburg and tried to make him a #2,(not even a #1) that didn't work out too well.
