The Steelers traded Martavis Bryant during the draft and then selected James Washington in the second round in a move that may give them a replacement for Bryant in the wide receiver group.
Washington isn’t the only option for the snaps opened up by Bryant’s departure, however. Justin Hunter remains on the Pittsburgh roster and he’s gotten chances to run with the first team with Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster missing some of the team’s OTA practices.
Minnesota is slated to pick at No. 30, which is essentially a second-round pick, so it can capitalize on teams wanting a quarterback and still get the player it wants early on Day 2. Outside of the top two to three offensive linemen, most of the guards the Vikings have their eyes on will be available from Nos. 33-40, so they’re in a favorable position to get the player they want there and pick again at 62.

Game Youth Conor Timmins Jersey Aundray Bruce edges out Bruce Pickens (No. 3 overall in 1991) as the biggest draft bust in Falcons history. It hurts a little more with Bruce, because many thought the team was giving plenty of consideration to taking Brown, fresh off his spectacular Heisman-winning season at Notre Dame. While Bruce flamed out as a little-used player over four seasons in Atlanta, Brown immediately exploded with the Raiders as a dynamic return man. He went on to play 16 seasons in Los Angeles and Oakland as one of the game’s most reliable all-around receivers. He got his well-deserved place in Canton in 2015.
