Yeah, I can feel that too. That said they know more about it than I do. Just when I think they made a pick that makes no sense I remember JuJu or pulling an AB in the 6th round.

They should have traded down but with Shazier announcing the pick they probably didn't want to do that. Imo they are too focused on stopping the Patriots* as one of this guy's biggest strenghts is covering TE's, but I think he's not strong enough to stop Gronk. He will be used as a hybrid LB/S, basically what Deone Bucannon does for the Cardinals. He's kind of Shazier's replacement. I think they will still draft a FS somewhere, but maybe not as early as expected.

Looking forward to tonight. I hope they get Washington, St Brown or Pettis as receiver and Reid or Bates at FS. Awesome to have an extra 3rd-round pick in this draft.

From what I have been reading on him the kid looks like a versatile player that will be able to help this team a ton. They tried to move up to get Evans but it didn’t work out so they went with the second area of need. I am content with the pick sure it could have been another Safety that was projected but I trust the process the FO and coaches go through to decide on players.

but burnette was also used as a hybrid lb/safety.

i'd think that with the addition of a second strong safety, that the intention is to move davis to free safety. they passed up the best FS prospect to pick edmunds. justin reed. could be they passed on reed because of his brother and the kneeling thing.

Yeah, but Burnett is more a safety than a hybrid, Edmunds is a natural hybrid. I think the defense will change a lot this year. More subpackages with 3 safeties and more difficulties for the opponent in guessing what we're going to do. Edmunds is both good in covering the zone and covering man to man. He can cover the TE or the RB. Davis will indeed move to free safety. In contradiction to what I said earlier I don't think they will draft another safety. Berhe will be #4. He and Edmunds are both excellent special teamers, so that's a bonus.

In short, I like the position, I like the player, but it's a huge reach and they should have traded down. His SPARQ-test shows he's a typical Steeler btw.

Today I certainly expect a LB and a WR and maybe a NT or a OL. We'll see.

I like the pick for this hybrid defense the Steelers are putting together.

28. Terrell Edmunds, S, Pittsburgh Steelers

He's a very physical football player. Played him a lot in the box, almost played Dime linebacker. Explosive athlete. I think the key here is he can match tight ends.

Quote :
Edmunds' father, Ferrell, was a tight end with the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks. Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert was scouting for Miami when the Dolphins drafted Ferrell Edmunds and has a history with the family.
Colbert and coach Mike Tomlin dined with the Edmunds family the night before Virginia Tech's pro day, which was March 14. Edmunds said his mother peppered the Steelers brass with questions.
"To see that family interact, it was encouraging to see two great players coming from such a great family," Colbert said. "It was a neat moment."
It was the first time the Steelers selected a safety in the first round since taking Troy Polamalu in 2003.
Edmunds will join a reconfigured secondary that added safety Morgan Burnett in free agency. After the season, the Steelers released veteran safeties Mike Mitchell and Robert Golden and cornerback William Gay.
Colbert said Edmunds can play free safety, strong safety and nickel linebacker, and he can match up against slot receivers.
"There is a lot that he can do," Colbert said. "Really, he's a four-down player in our opinion."

This was a good pick by the Steelers. I was hoping for a good ILB, but the good ones were gone at 28. There's no way this guy would be sitting on the board when the Steelers drafted in the 2nd round. Think about this: the next safety taken was later in the 2nd and the following in the 3rd.  Funny, because the talking heads didn't see it and have been quick to knock the Steelers for the pick, but the league obviously knew Edmunds was the next guy on the Safety list and he wasn't going to sit until the 60th pick. Another thing to consider is if you look at his 2016 sophomore season production, do you think the pick is good? As a sophomore, he was in on over 100 tackles and had 4 picks. His production dropped in his junior season due to his shoulder injury. He was the guy who kept the secondary in alignment and called out the coverage based on the offensive lineup.

With a 41" vertical and over 11' broad jump, he's a very athletic guy.

The Steelers sent the army of staff to the VT pro day and I don't think it was to see his younger brother (because there's no chance he would drop to the Steelers). From the stories I've heard, the staff went to dinner with the Edmunds. At that dinner, Edmunds' mother was grilling Tomlin about taking care of her son (Terrell, not Tremaine). So this was a guy they have been thinking about for quite a while.

Welcome to the Steelers Terrell!

if the players you're looking at like safety take the guy with the highest vertical jump in my book.

I also think the Steelers are stocking up on in the box Safeties as 4-3 outside linebackers for their 2 d-linemen sub-package they got 3 of them this offseason. to get as many DBs on the field as they can in this package, against 4 or 5 offensive sets. also over the years the Steelers have had a hard time with pass catching TEs.

one thing I know with a new DB coach the Safety position is not the weak link.

another thing I'm seeing in the 2 d-linemen package is the rotation that could be Tuitt , Heyward, Alualu and Hargrave. imo Dupree would be best used as a stand up DE against run or as a pass rusher quit dropping him in pass coverage as for Watt the other stand up DE the fire blitz would work great from his side same with Hayward for the inside fire blitz.

a look back to the 70s Steelers LBs Jack Ham was a OLB/SS of that time in that defense so why not put 2 SS/OLB on the field at the same time in the 2 d-linemen package. with 2 SS/OLB on the field the ILB just reads run or be another pass rusher.

you 3-4 Steelers fans most likely think I'm stupid i really liked the Cowher/ Lebeau defenses until quality teams spread out those Cowher defenses and when quality offensives figured out Lebeau's blitzes.

imo as quality offenses have evolved into a spread the field and hurry up good quality hybrid defenders are really needed on the back end of the defense not to invent but play less on their heels between the 20s. still when the game gets in your face in short yardage you still need the tree stumps they're not drafted as high as they use to be.

I am done rambling I really like this draft.

But that's coming from NFL execs and coaches. They're not as knowledgeable as fans and other draft "experts."

No, agreed. The guy at my local Quickie Mart says Edmunds was at best a 4-5th pick best suited for special teams

Mike Tomlin impressed with Steelers rookie safety tandem

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a pair of rookies at minicamp this weekend, and Mike Tomlin likes what he sees — so far.

By Jeff.Hartman
May 13, 2018



The Pittsburgh Steelers struggled on defense on more than one occasion in the 2017 season, and even the most untrained football eye could tell you it was commonly a lack of communication, and poor tackling.

Throughout the 2018 NFL Draft, the Steelers focus when selecting a defender usually revolved around the aforementioned attributes. Players who communicated well, and were known for their tackling.

Out of the seven picks they had in the draft process, the team took two safeties. Both of those safeties were lauded for their ability to communicate well, and their rather sound tackling technique.

Early impressions of all 32 NFL first-round picks

No. 28: Pittsburgh Steelers

S Terrell Edmunds. He looks athletic and hasn't made many glaring mistakes, but the reps are fairly limited, with Morgan Burnett and Sean Davis entrenched as likely starters. The team likes that Edmunds is an active communicator on the back end and is willing to play multiple positions -- safety or dime linebacker -- when needed. Status: Right on track. -- Jeremy Fowler
