That's a big TE

It turns out that he is a rugby player from the UK. Should be interesting to watch.
I read somewhere that the steelers have taken rugby players twice before. Neither made the team.

You should see the D3 and NAIA guys.

Actually, I'll bet Gannon, on average, played vs better players than the Ivy league guys do. Ivy League is technically higher division, but... yikes.

Maybe it's just the picture, but man it looks like Edmunds has some long ass arms, for a Safety.

Terrell Edmunds is 2 inches shorter than Rashaan Evans but has arms that are 1/2' longer, 32 3/4".

And, if memory serves, probably close to a 10"+ better vert.

Yeah, Edmunds had a 41.5 inch vertical and Evans only managed a 30 inch.

I still contend that he (Evans) is not in the same class of say a Mosley, and I think he is much slower, I think he is a 4.75 guy, and those groin injuries don't help with that. I just really don't see him as being that much of an upgrade over even a Vince Williams. I hear people say, well, hey Evans has talent as a pass rusher, so what? Vince Williams had 8 sacks last season. What we needed was a fast ILB who can play sideline to sideline, not another pedestrian ILB like Williams or Spence where their lack of speed becomes an issue.
