Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

I know many of you have read this article about the possibility of Mike Wallace being available for a 1st round pick as a RFA

Mike Wallace: I want to stay in Pittsburgh, but it’s a business | ProFootballTalk


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...

No. He may stretch the field, but 6th overall pick worthy? No. I'd give up a second for him, or a late first. I'd give up anything 25th overall or later, but 6th overall? No.

Yes. My reasoning is this:

1. He's younger than Wallace. Granted, 25 is not that old, but I'd rather have Blackmon. 22 > 25.

2. Blackmon is the kind of big bodied receiver who I can see making all the catches; short, intermediate, deep, sideline, ins, outs, etc. He's not the burner Wallace is, but I feel like that's the primary thing Wallace has going for him. 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.

Think about it would you spend a 6th pick on an unproven talent or a player who has had 3200 yards in his first three years in the league.

I'm with mooby. Although Wallace is the field stretcher that we need at wideout, he is not worth the #6 pick.

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

Is this topic worth its own thread? No offense, but there's already a FA WR thread.

And my answer is no, Wallace is not worth the #6 pick.

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

Is he worth just the sixth pick? Sure. Is he worth the sixth pick and the huge salary it would cost to pry him from the Steelers. He'd have to be the second coming of Rice to be worth both those things.

For the Browns, Ravens, and Bengals though, the added value of prying him from a division rival might be enough to make the price tag worth it.

Re: Is Mike Wallace worth the 6th pick?

Just a fun discussion in the offseason... in the free agent thread there is no real mention of Wallace. I was just thinking Wallace is a legit proven NFL 1000 yard reciever, young, blazing speed TD Machine.

Hell to the NO. Absolutely not. You crazy? Nope. Zilch.



That about sums it up.

No to Wallace and no to Blackmon with the #6 pick. Good WRs can be had anywhere. Shut down Corners on the other hand
