    Udfa

    Looking at last years UDFA's it seems we didn't hit on much. B Arnfelt is the only player on our team. Maybe he can provide depth on the DL. I like what the article says on him. Am I missing someone? I know Reggie Dunn opened some eyes only to get cut a few weeks into camp.

    Who are the top 3 UDFA that we have had on the Steelers? When were they signed (year)?

    Just off the top of my head....

    Kevin Greene - had prolific career in Pgh. He and Lloyd playing OLB was one of our best combos.

    James Farrior - was team capt. and voted MVP a few times.

    Jeff Hartings - we always seem to forget him. Very good center.

    Ryan Clark - I didn't think much of him coming in but he became a very solid FS for us.

    Kimo Von Oelhoffen - Solid contributor at DE

    JL Williams - towards the end of his career but still gave us some good play.

    Ray Seals - only played two years but he was good while he was here.
    --------------
    Sorry, all that for nothing. I was thinking you asked about Unrestricted Free agents, not UDFA, my mistake.

    Nik Embernate was running 2nd team guard before he got hurt last year. If I remember correctly he signed a fairly large contract for an UDFA and they were pretty high on him. Terence Garvin also was an UDFA.

    So I guess 3 guys made it to the roster if you count Nik Embernate....I don't see him on the roster any longer though.
    Garvin had 11 Tackles in limited role...Arnfelt played in 2 games and I don't remember when Nik got hurt.

    You don't see him as in you don't think he makes the team? Or his name isn't on the actual roster? I remember reading that most liked what they saw out of him before he got hurt. I believe it happened at the beginning of August, right after Nick Williams. I think if he comes back healthy he has a chance to make the final 53 if the steelers carry 9 lineman like they have the past few years. He can replace whimper if they draft a tackle to groom incase they don't want to bring back Gilbert.


    I think if Foote hadn't gotten hurt Garvin would've been on the practice squad. Same thing with Arnfelt and N. Williams getting hurt... The potential for another 1 or 2 guys to make it is there this year. But if the team drafts well hopefully they can be PS players they develop.

    I didn't see his name on our roster page. Don't know what that means...If he is a free agent or what.

    Oh that's weird. Last I heard he was put on IR, I never saw anything about him being released

    I was thinking the same thing about Embernate...and, if I'm not mistaken, he's still with the team. Garvin was clearly the top contributor as a rookie Udfa...but I think we have 4-5 that could potentially be contributors... Arnfelt, J. Brown, Moye, Embernate, Garvin.
