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.
