Emmanuel Sanders: Worth it or not?

As reported yesterday by ProFootballTalk, the Pittsburgh Steelers put an original round tender on Emmanuel Sanders. As he was a third round pick, the Steelers don't seem too worried of any offer sheets, according to espn.com. Sanders is expected to make around $1.3 million this year, he's not expensive in the slightest. I've been eyeing him all year as a guy way under the radar. So let's take a look at the guy.

According to Rotoworld, Sanders put together his best season last year in the 2012 dink and dunk offense in Pittsburgh. Dink and dunk, hmm, sounds familiar. He played all 16 games, 44 receptions for 626 yards and one touchdown averaging 14.2 yards a catch. He did lose two fumbles, which isn't good.

He does bring some intangibles as well. He can also take kick returns, as he did plenty of in his rookie season (2010), and he can return punts which he's done in each of his three seasons.

He isn't a huge signing but with the departure of Harvin he could be an interesting target. Is a third round pick and possibly a contract around $2 million too much for a wide receiver with his stat line? Maybe, but to his credit he's a 5'11, 180 pounder who played behind the duo of Antonio Brown and Mike Wallace. He's young, quick, and agile. He might be one of those diamonds in the rough.

What's your thoughts? Is he as appealing as I think or do I need to step of the ledge?
