FOURTH ROUND (124): Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh

Devin Street is a smart receiver who, at 6-3, is one of the quicker receivers in the draft. The size and quickness combinations are something Dorsey tends to look for based on his draft history, and Street fits the bill. Because Street is also a quick guy and good route runner, he’ll do very well in Reid’s system.
Street is also known to be a hard worker and a good team guy. He’s Pittsburgh’s all-time leading receivers, which is impressive considering Pittsburgh hasn’t been a very good passing team in his time there. The production plus his size will go a long way for him in terms of his stock.
One thing to consider here is that Andy Reid likes to spread the ball around. There is nothing wrong with having a possession-type receiver in Reid’s offense. Jason Avant was very good in that role for the Reid in Philadelphia. The Chiefs can add some speed threats – like Reese – later in the draft to mix in with A.J. Jenkins and Weston Dressler. Having a consistent pass catcher opposite of Bowe would be a very valuable thing for Alex Smith to have at his disposal.
