Both could be corrected this season and the emergence of Santonio Holmes could open up the field for Ward. I say this because I see Ward being undervalued in too many drafts. If Grossman focuses on the game and stays healthy Berrian could really come on. More of a sleeper than a Smithian breakout type. Braylon Edwards if the Brownies can find a decent QB. Too much skill not to be able to break free for a long pass a few times a month.
Just a couple of the top of my head.
Guys like Ward always have a low ceiling though because of how much Pitt runs the ball. I know they're supposed to loosen the offense up some under Mike Tomlin, but you know they're still going to be a run first team. Ward's not the kind of guy to put up a 1,300 yard season. 1,000 yards is more like it, and his TD totals usually hover around 5 or 6. I'm starting to think the 11 TD season he had a while back was an anomaly, but at least he showed the potential for it.
Mark CLayton's in the same boat, the Baltimore O is too conservative.
