 Draft Scout Dri Archer News
05/18/14 - RB Dri Archer, the Steelers' undersized third-round draft pick, returned kickoffs, played receiver and halfback at Kent State. The Steelers hope to add a chore for him he did not handle in college, that of punt returner. He was fielding punts throughout rookie camp. "I am comfortable at both," said Archer, who is 5-8, 173. "I've been working on both."
05/13/14 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: PITTSBURGH STEELERS: Round 3/97 -- Dri Archer, RB/WR, 5-8, 173, Kent State...Offensive coordinator Todd Haley always has a small, quick, do-it-all back for a change of pace and to add some intrigue to his unit. Archer's announced 40-yard time at the combine was 4.26 seconds, but one official timer had him at 4.16, the fastest clocking at the combine this century by any method of timing. The Steelers plan to use him all over the place, including on kick returns. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Steelers' picks: Round 3/97 - Dri Archer, RB/WR, 5-8, 173, Kent State...Todd Haley always has had a small, quick, fast do-it-all back for a change of pace and to add some intrigue to his offense. Archer ran a 4.26 40. They plan to use him all over the place, plus on kick returns. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 100/17. Dri Archer, WR, Kent State, 5-08, 173, 4.16, 3...Archer is instant danger who can get to the end zone as fast as anybody who has ever played the game. Anybody. Really. He has the fastest time ever clocked in 40 yards at an Indianapolis combine -- 4.16 seconds, although his announced time was 4.26 seconds. He was used in college as a running back, wide receiver and as a returner who scored four touchdowns on kickoffs and would have scored more but teams kicked away from him.

An injury marred senior season (ankle)lends credence to concerns about his slight frame and durability. Frankly: Yes, Archer is small and probably fragile. But he's bigger and faster than Trindon Holliday (5-5, 170, Broncos in 2013) and you can't hurt what you can't catch. OK, go ahead and say it -- right now Al Davis is trying to communicate with son Mark to draft this kid. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
