We're doing a series on the most important players on the Steelers offense going into the 2017 season. Here's # 2--
#2 - Antonio Brown
An elite receiver, he forces defenses to overreact to his presence. Any type of single coverage and he torches people. What makes him so special is his ability to take easy throws (screens and such) and create big plays out of them.
I’m not sure we’ve really seen a talent like him at the receiver position in a long time. A veritable slot receiver who is as uncoverable as him, he’s that good. His route running is impeccable and with Ben’s accuracy, we’re not really sure how you can play against him. With 481 catches over the last 4 years, it’s not like any team has had an answer for him. He’s just a joy to watch and a gamebreaker whenever he has the ball in his hands.
