Steelers selected Auburn WR Sammie Coates with the No. 87 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
The pick is even more intriguing after the Steelers added Martavis Bryant last year. Coates (6'1/212) spent three seasons at Auburn, parlaying 82 catches into 1,757 yards (21.4 YPR) and 13 TDs. Long armed (33 3/8") and explosive, Coates blew up the Combine with a 4.43 forty, 41-inch vertical, and 10-foot-11 broad jump. The range of outcomes on Coates is wide. A dominant physical talent with poor ball skills, Coates dropped 8-of-75 targets in 2014 and has a floor in the Cordarrelle Patterson-Stephen Hill range. Working in Coates' favor is a relentless work ethic and ability to outrun coverage. The 22-year-old is a boom-or-bust prospect. May 1 - 10:58 PM
