PITTSBURG, Pa. (AP)- The Pittsburgh Steelers have given quarterback Ben Roethlisberger another big target, selecting Notre Dame wide receiver Chase Claypool in the second round of the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-4 Claypool caught 66 passes for 1,037 yards and 13 touchdowns last year.

He joins an offense in search of another playmaker. The Steelers finished 8-8 last year after losing Roethlisberger to a right elbow injury at halftime of Week 2.
