    if they keep one beyond cordarrelle, he has got a good chance to make final cuts.
    Yeah right.
    What do YOU KNOW about picking what undrafted rookie running backs will succeed on this team?

    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    The fact that this dude was not drafted is insane to me.
    He was projected initially as a mid round pick. Not sure why he fell.. but im glad we got him. As a WVU fan.. i watched him all year. He has a real chance to stick for us.

    I think so too.

    as of right now, he's the only true slot/nickel CB on our roster.

    Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in seven years and counting. The earliest will be eight years. Art Rooney II, get a new head coach.

    Our 2024 draft is grade A.

    I was on Bishop earlier this year as a target and wasn't sure why he fell either. Is there an undisclosed injury/issue?

    Profile from wvsports:

    Beanie Bishop came to West Virginia in 2023 knowing it was his last chance to prove he?s an NFL level player. And Bishop did that and then some in his lone season for the Mountaineers.

    However, Bishop?s success at WVU was not enough to earn him an invite to the NFL Combine, something that added more fuel to his fire. But for a player who told WV Sports Now that he know he?s elite when the ball is in the air, Bishop is hoping one NFL team will give him an opportunity to carry that chip on his shoulder to the professional ranks and see how far his confidence and skills can take him.

    Beanie Bishop?s College Bio
    The Louisville, Ky. native, who was a star at Western Kentucky before failing to make an impact in the Big Ten at Minnesota, helped swing momentum in big games for WVU, most notably in a Backyard Brawl win over Pitt. Bishop made 67 total tackles, deflected 20 passes, picked off four and even returned a punt for an historic touchdown in a bowl victory.

    All in all, Bishop made the most of his time as a Mountaineer. In fact, he will forever be part of West Virginia history despite only playing one season at WVU. Bishop was named the program?s 13th consensus All-American for his 2023 season.

    Teams to Watch
    Bishop had pre-draft visits with the Cleveland Browns, Washington Commanders and even the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Could Bishop be a fit as a slot option for Mike Tomlin?

    Pros for Beanie Bishop in NFL

    • Work ethic
    • Confidence
    • Won?t back down from anyone
    • Not afraid to get physical
    • Can run with most receivers
    • Gets hand on the ball
    • Ability to return kickoff and punts


    Areas of Concern for Beanie Bishop in NFL

    • Should have come up with even more interceptions in 2023
    • Dropped picks
    • Undersized for a cornerback
    • May draw penalties
    • Issues locating the deep ball
    • Only had one successful season in a major conference


    Big 12 Pro Day Testing

    • 40 time: 4.39
    • 1.82 ?flying 20?
    • shuttle time: 4.15


    So he's a CB that can't catch? If he can be an Ike Taylor2.0 I'll take that every day of the week.

    Yup, many had Beanie going in the 4-5 round range, solid UNFA pickup, he may raise some eyebrows in camp. Of course, I'm just a homer....

    I think I’ve figured why. He gave up 5 scores. STILL dude should have been drafted.

    But if you consider his stats, he was attacked a lot. Without film this rells me:

    Receivers APPEAR open against him but he closes fast. Thus gets hands on the ball a ton but gets stung on occasion.

    Save for a shared lack of hands he seems the polar opposite of JPJ who prevents attempts altogether.

    I think he has nice skills for a slot.

    How Likely Pittsburgh Steelers Undrafted Free Agents Are to Make Roster

    1. Beanie Bishop DB, West Virginia

    Of all five Steelers undrafted free agents, Bishop is head and shoulders the most likely to make the team. While Pittsburgh had a great draft, they didn't do anything to address their need at slot cornerback. They will probably sign a slot-capable veteran, but Bishop could fill that role perfectly for them. Bishop was a second-team All-American and first-team All-Big 12 selection last season. He is the embodiment of a playmaker, totaling four interceptions and 67 tackles last year. Bishop is very solid in run support, too, which the Steelers always expect of their nickel cornerbacks. Pittsburgh will sign another cornerback, but Bishop will compete in training camp with a real shot of making the roster.
