The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to bounce back in 2021 after an early exit from the playoffs. Pittsburgh once again boasts a deep receiving corps around Ben Roethlisberger as it contends in a deep AFC North.

Here's a look at the Steelers' updated WR depth chart for 2021.

Steelers WR Depth Chart 2021

1. JuJu Smith-Schuster

The Steelers beat out other suitors to re-sign JuJu Smith-Schuster this offseason. The 24-year-old posted a whopping 75.8% catch rate in 2020 while grabbing 97 receptions for 831 yards and 9 TDs. He'll be a top target for Big Ben once again this year.

2. Chase Claypool

Chase Claypool is coming off of a standout rookie campaign where he grabbed 62 catches for 873 yards and 9 TDs. Claypool excelling in a big role right away is great news for his sophomore season.

3. Diontae Johnson

Second-year wideout Diontae Johnson actually led this talented WR group with 923 yards in 2020 on 88 receptions. Johnson also saw a team-high 144 targets, but he'll look to improve upon his 61.1% catch rate from last year.

James Washington played a perfect supporting role for the Steelers in 2020. He turned 30 receptions into 392 yards and 5 TDs, rounding out this top WR corps.
