At Pittsburgh Wilson played in 48 games catching 88 balls for 1,431 yards and 15 touchdowns. The second team All-Big East selection signed a four-year contract with the team, the terms of the deal were not disclosed.

McIntyre signed a three-year contract with the team, as with Wilson the terms of the deal were not disclosed. He played sparingly as a Tiger only starting 13 games in four years with the team. As a senior McIntyre started nine games with a career high 41 catches for 621 yards and three scores.

The two draft picks will join the team when they open up training camp on July 29. Also joining the team will be third round linebacker Keyaron Fox out of Georgia Tech and seventh round offensive tackle Kevin Sampson from Syracuse.
