WR Markus Wheaton, Oregon State

Steelers, 3rd round. Ore. St.: Slightly below-average size. Average hand size.

Positives: Above-average hands when extending. Willing to hit DB for extra yards instead of going out of bounds. Moves well in the open field. Adequate routes. Quick feet. Tracks well. Adjusts fairly well. Above-average speed. Above-average upper-body strength. Adequate hands in traffic.

Negatives: Body catches more than he should. Inconsistent hands overall. Suspect concentration over the middle. Inconsistent downfield blocker.

Projection: Will probably see the field quite a bit in 2013, and his physicality will be an asset for the team, but isn’t likely to ever be a dominant fantasy WR. Draft as a WR5 with WR3 upside.
