Entering the supplemental draft. Any chance the Steelers are interested? He was academically ineligible to finish his senior campaign so he has decided to enter the supplemental draft. 6'2-ish/6'3 200lbs...

I don't see the need at Cb but I wonder if Edmunds gives him some 411

I hope so, I had him ranked as one of my top CBs entering the 2017 college football season. Has a lot of potential.

Some talent there but a head case...pot arrest...academic issues...big head at times.

Love his size though. I might consider a late rounder for him.

Could play either Safety or Corner. Has excellent length and decent athleticism. Has the college production desired for transitioning to the Pros. Had he not blown his free ride in college played out this season and waited to be drafted next year. I think he goes fairly high in the draft. In the top rounds. I seriously doubt the Steelers are going to spend a draft pick for this guy. Just wondered what Fury posters thought. Slower part of the year..., good for some discussion. ;)

I fully agree FC. I doubt the Steelers do.

After this year, you could definitely consider moving Artie Burns or Sean Davis.

IF they play okay/well but others (Sutton et al) play better... you could consider trading one of those two 4th year DBs for some value. IIRC, they'd have one year left on the cheap and then become RFA.

I guess I'm saying... at the right price, adding a cheap rookie with upside might be worthwhile. Maybe Haden hits his downside suddenly–you never know.

Regardless, they're going to have some good problems at DB.

Haden, Joe
Burns, Artie
Davis, Sean
Burnett, Morgan
Edmunds, Terrell
Sutton, Cameron
Berhe, Nat
Allen, Brian
Allen, Marcus
Dangerfield, Jordan
Sensabaugh, Coty
Golden, Malik
Phillips, Dashaun
Johnson, Trey
Summers, Jamar
