Second-year pro Antonio Brown might not be a household name, but he has become one of the Steelers' playmakers as a receiver and returner. He broke the franchise record for all-purpose yards, with 2,170, and has come up with so many big plays that he was voted team MVP. He has benefited from defenses' paying attention to blazing No. 1 wideout Mike Wallace, who, like Brown, surpassed 1,000 receiving yards this year. With his sure hands, Brown has also earned the trust of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger: The wideout ranks second in the AFC with 29 third-down receptions. Catch him if you can.
