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

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.

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.

Cleveland does and they are in desperate need for a WR.

Let's say we go for the 2nd round QB and sign a vetran like PM, Orton or other. Would you be willing to forfiet the 6th pick for Mike Wallace.

Let's take RGIII and Luck off the table for a second.

Wallace has blazing speed and is true number 1. Here are his stats over his career.

Mike Wallace, WR for the Pittsburgh Steelers at NFL.com

only 25 year old. Discuss...
Absolutely not.

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

Mike Wallace is a proven talent and still young. And he gives what we lack the most, speed and big play weapon at WR position. Much much less roll of the dice with the much older and 1 strike away V Jax, the non clutch, head case Stevie Johnson, the head case, inconsistent D Jax or the multiple knee surgury Colston. Mike Wallace a tier above these guys imo

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

Am I the only one who thinks that the "Stevie Johnson is a head case" comments are too much? I mean the guy made two stupid TD celebrations last season...other than that, what has he done anything else to be labeled a head case? I'm sorry but to me a head case is TO/Randy Moss in their troublesome primes.

I'd say he has some maturity issues to work on. Head case is definitely over the top.

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

Remember when Vinny was willing to send two 1st rounders for Chad (ochocinco) Johnson AND then give him a huge deal? Aren't we glad those days are over. (and glad the Bengals said no)

I don't know who was more stupid. Mike Brown for turning that down, or Vinny offering that deal. No wonder his phone hasn't rang since he was fired.

Both, except that Mike Brown is a lucky SOB.
