At wide receiver, the listed second-year pro
At running back, the team listed newcomer
"We feel like he can be our ace in the hole, or the joker, since we can use him in various positions," Mann said. "We can move him around. We can utilize his running ability by lining him up as a running back, and he also has receiving skills. I think it's up to coach (Todd) Haley and the offensive staff to put him in places where he can succeed. I think he's going to be a weapon for us."
Archer tallied 10 total touchdowns and 854 total yards on less than 100 touches at Kent State last season.
"I'm not sure," Archer said of what his role will be. "It's going to be a big role, but I'm just going to do whatever I'm asked to do. Play receiver, play running back, helping special teams. Whatever they want me to do, I'm going to do it."
Archer could see time in the slot as well as in the backfield but is unlikely to unseat Le'Veon Bell or LeGarrette Blount as key running backs in the Steelers offense.
In 10 games last season with Kent State, Archer tallied 10 total touchdowns and 854 total yards on 68 carries and 25 catches.
