Steelers 2018 Draft Class
Topping last year’s mystifying selection of a long-snapper, the Steelers sure surprised us by not drafting any linebackers and picking up a QB for the second year in a row. Join us on this week’s podcast for our breakdown of the Steeler’s draft selections.
- Did this draft improve upon the 2017 Steelers?
- Any weird picks in this class?
- Is Mason Rudolph the heir apparent?
|1 / #28||Terrell Edmunds|
Better in the box - contains the edge
Misses tackes in the open
Tends to bite and get faked
Less effective in coverage
|2 / #60||James Washington|
|Wide Receiver||Oklahoma State||PFF=2
Led the nation with 815 yards on deep passes in 2017 and ranked second with eight touchdowns on deep passes
|3 / #76||Mason Rudolph|
Finished each of the past three season with the second-highest grade in the draft class
|3 / #92||Chukwuma Okorafor|
|Offensive Tackle||Western Michigan||PFF=11
Impressive physical traits; athletic in space, but slow out of stance; lack aggressiveness (played in the MAC). Needs to learn how to use hands and feet; total project
|5 / #148||Marcus Allen|
Solid run stopper; iffy range at FS; loads of missed tackles; big enough to take on TEs
|5 / #165||Jaylen Samuels|
|Tight End||NC State||PFF=7
Possible dual-threat HB
goal line back; red zone TDs=12
Compiled receptions through bubble screens, shovel passes
|7 / #246||Joshua Frazier|
Backup; played<18% of snaps
Can eat blocks or play through a blocker's edge
Lacks quickness and pass rush
