Terrell Edmunds was the Steelers' #1 pick in this year's NFL Draft. Edmunds played at Virginia Tech. The Steelers picked him over Ronnie Harrison of Alabama and Justin Reid of Stanford at the position.
Edmunds is 6 feet 1, 217 pounds, and safety was another need on defense for a team that released starting free safety Mike Mitchell. They also signed veteran Morgan Burnett in free agency.
“He does fill that void of a nice young defender on the back end,” Colbert said. “Terrell Edmunds is a very gifted, athletic, physical safety who has played free safety, strong safety. He may rotate from one to the other in the same play.”
Mike Tomlin said they can use Edmunds all over the secondary.
