The Pittsburgh Steelers had zero wide receivers listed by ESPN’s top 10 wide receiver list made from talking to NFL coaches and front office executives. While Diontae Johnson wasn’t listed in a group that included Davante Adams, Cooper Kupp, Ja’Marr Chase, Justin Jefferson and more, could his 2022 production put him in that conversation?
How the Steelers use their receivers in Matt Canada’s offense will play a big factor. Balancing Johnson with Chase Claypool, George Pickens and Calvin Austin III as well as Najee Harris and Pat Freiermuth will be a challenge. But new quarterbacks Mitch Trubisky and Kenny Pickett could attach themselves to a top target and give the Steelers their star receiver again. But who might become the Steelers’ next superstar wide receiver?
Also, a caller asks Chris Carter and Josh Taylor if Chris Boswell can make the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a kicker. Comparisons to Justin Tucker, Adam Vinatieri and Morten Anderson show that it’s a real possibility.
