Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Steelers' picks: Round 3/84 -- Mike Wallace, WR/KR, 6-0, 195, Mississippi...Fills a need at both his position and the long-sought kick returner the Steelers have not had in a long time. Wallace has 4.3 speed and will compete for playing time at wide receiver, but really get his chance as a return man in 2009. - by The Sports Xchange
