Steelers selected Kent State RB/WR Dri Archer with the No. 97 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Archer (5-foot-7 3/4, 173) was an all-purpose weapon for the Golden Flashes, amassing 1,956 yards and 22 touchdowns on 227 carries (8.62 YPC) over his final two seasons, to go with 99 college catches. Including four on kick returns, Archer accounted for 40 career TDs. His 4.26 forty was the fastest at the 2014 Combine, and just .02 off Chris Johnson's record. Unfortunately, Archer will be a 23-year-old rookie and has likely maxed out physically. He'll probably always be below 180 pounds. Archer offers gadget and "package" potential. The Steelers failed when picking Chris Rainey, and this is another shot in finding a similar player. May 9 - 11:16 PM
