ESPN Steelers reporter Scott Brown expects second-year WR Markus Wheaton to "emerge this season" opposite Antonio Brown.
Wheaton was limited to 12 games (161 snaps) as a rookie due to injuries. Despite his lack of playing time in Todd Haley's system, the Steelers are likely to use him in the Emmanuel Sanders role, starting Wheaton at Z-receiver and moving him to the slot in three-wide sets. Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey were signed to replace Jerricho Cotchery, and will compete for the No. 3 receiver job. The Steelers could also upgrade at wideout in the draft. They've been linked to LSU's Odell Beckham and Florida State's Kelvin Benjamin. Apr 12 - 6:03 PM
