Steelers Sign A Trio Of Draft Picks Including WR Markus Wheaton

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed three of their draft picks today. CB Terry Hawthorne, WR Justin Brown and WR Markus Wheaton have all agreed on 4-year deals.

Of the three, Markus Wheaton is the name to watch in fantasy circles. A while back, our very own Jason Davis talked about him and gave some good insight on what to expect. He could be a valuable fantasy commodity in deep leagues this season and should be able to overtake the #3 slot from veteran Jerricho Cotchery at some point.

As a dynasty league candidate, Wheaton could be in for a much bigger role in 2014 if the Steelers let Emmanuel Sanders go via free agency.
