Steelers Draft Hindsight Exercise: Would You Still Take Dri Archer In Round Three?

When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted running back Dri Archer in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, I made it clear that I wasn’t a big fan of the selection. Now, six games into his rookie season, Archer has played all of 28 snaps in the four games that he’s dressed for and has registered 39 yards of offense on nine touches. Needless to say my opinion of the selection hasn’t changed.

I thought we would have a little fun today and run an exercise similar to the ones that we ran immediately after the draft. Now is you chance to change that pick or stay with Archer.

We have a few rules that you must follow, however, as you must select one of the 20 players drafted after Archer was taken and before wide receiver Martavis Bryant was taken by the Steelers in the fourth round with the 118th overall selection.

For easy reference I have included those 20 players below. In the comments below, let me know whether or not you would stay with the Archer selection and if not, which player of the 20 listed below would pick instead and why.

This should be fun now that we have six games behind us.
