Pittsburgh kept up their tradition of putting quality receivers into the NFL Draft as another Panther underclassman wide out went in the first round last April.  Moving forward we don’t see much in the way of receivers or first rounders coming from the program any time soon.  Louisville offers a few underrated prospects including one of the best centers in the country.
