There is no doubt that Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Antonio Brown is the standout pass catcher for the team. However, the Steelers are hyped about their 2014 fourth-round pick Martavis Bryant when it comes to their no-huddle attack.

Steelers’ wide receiver’s coach Richard Mann had some positive insight to share regarding Bryant through the teams’s website (h/t NFL.com).
He’s a big guy, different from what we’ve had, as far as his length. We feel like we can utilize his talents in the red zone. He has a big reach. He has good speed. So we can use him in various ways, as far as cleaning things out. He’s also a deep threat. He does have the speed.
According to Bob McGinn from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, NFL scouts described the 6’5″ Bryant as having a “Randy Moss-type build” with better speed on the field than first-round pick Sammy Watkins.

If you think about it, the Steelers have a pretty loaded receiving unit with the versatility of the former Saints wideout Lance Moore, second-year player Markus Wheaton, Brown and Bryant.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger should be in quite capable hands for 2014.
