The youngster is hopeful that his speed will be a huge asset to the team, and he is expecting to be a part of the Steelers' plans from an early stage next season.
Archer told Ohio.com: "I'm not sure (of my exact role). It's going to be a big role, but I'm just going to do whatever I'm asked to do.
"I'll play receiver, play running back, help special teams. Whatever they want me to do, I'm going to do it.
"I'm living my dream. This is something I've always wanted to do as a kid. We're just out here having fun, doing what we love to do."
Archer ran for 567 yards and six touchdowns for Kent State during the 2013 season.
