    Some execs considered Edmunds a top 15 player

    Some might have been surprised to see Terrell Edmunds go in first round but NFL teams were not. Spoke with several execs/coaches this week and all said hes a first-round talent. One likened him to a skinnier Keanu Neal. Another said he was a top-15 player in the draft.

    I think the Steelers hit a home run with this pick. If he is used, as it is being reported, like they used Troy, with his speed (closing ability), football intelligence, tackling and hitting ability, he is going to excel at a very high level.

    I hope you're right. I just start to get real nervous when I hear it said of a draft pick (as I've heard about Edmunds), "We think he'll make a lot better pro than he did a college player." What that usually means is that the player wasn't picked that high because of his past on-field performance, but mainly because of good measurables and perceived potential. Quite often, such players don't really pan out.

    Yeah, but will he make an impact this season?

    Hopefully they will not make a Subway sandwich of his face like they did with Jarvis Jones!

    Edmunds didn’t focus on one position in college...they lined him up everywhere from CB to high safety to LB...

    Jarvis Jerrell Jones is an American football outside linebacker who is currently a free agent. He played college football for the University of Georgia, and was recognized as a consensus All-American twice. He was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 17th overall pick in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

    I was trying to make a 'funny' about 1st round picks. Guess it wasn't . Back to lurking, LOL.
