Where does former rugby player Christian Scotland-Williamson fit with the Steelers?

Where does former rugby player Christian Scotland-Williamson fit with the Steelers?

If former professional rugby player Christian Scotland-Williamson doesn’t end up on a roster in 2018, it might be the best thing that could happen to him to advance his career — and his childhood dream of playing in the NFL. So, a 6’-9” rugby player walks into the Steelers’ practice facility and says... Stop me if you’ve heard this one. No? Me neither. Thanks to the NFL’s International Player Pathway program, the Steelers get to carry a 91st player on their off-season roster, with the addition of former British rugby player Christian Scotland-Williamson, who dwarfs everyone on...

2018 NFL Draft Reaction: Steelers finish controversial draft strong

2018 NFL Draft Reaction: Steelers finish controversial draft strong

The Steelers are hoping they saw something in first-round pick Terrell Edmunds that most of the NFL pundits missed. But it’s hard — nigh on impossible, really — to deny the high upside and value they added on Day Three. As 10 different people for their opinion of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first four selections in the 2018 NFL Draft and you will probably get at least nine different takes. While the team clearly loaded up on a combination of athleticism and statistical freaks, they started off by selecting a player who was anywhere from the late first to the mid-fifth round on teams’...

2018 NFL Draft Reaction: Making sense of the Steelers’ Round 3 picks

2018 NFL Draft Reaction: Making sense of the Steelers’ Round 3 picks

The Steelers’ 2018 draft will be remembered for its polarizing picks, if nothing else. Safety Terrell Edmunds was the most surprising pick of the entire first round. Some loved the pick, some hated it outright. Others loved the player, but felt he could have been had in a later round. In the second round, Pittsburgh opted for the...

Steelers 2018 NFL Draft Reaction: James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State

An obvious pick when you look at it. The Steelers’ first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Terrell Edmunds, caught just about everyone by surprise. Their second-round pick, Oklahoma state receiver James Washington, might as well have been born with a Terrible Towel in his hand, because the pick was that obvious by the time Pittsburgh was on the clock for the 60th overall pick. When the Steelers jettisoned somewhat disgruntled receiver Martavis Bryant in a trade with the Raiders on Thursday evening, it set in stone what was already expected, anyway: Pittsburgh would draft a receiver fairly...

Steelers 2018 NFL Draft Reaction: Terrell Edmunds, S, Virginia Tech

The Steelers’ first pick of the 2018 NFL Draft caught just about everyone by surprise. Very few “experts” saw him as a first round talent. Of course, many of those same “experts” thought former Browns quarterback Tim Couch was a slam dunk. Maybe, the lesson here is that we should see for ourselves before we pass judgement. What I’ve seen so far of Terrell Edmunds has me wondering if the “experts” are wrong again. My first reaction to Ryan Shazier announcing the Steelers’ 2018 first-round pick Thursday night — aside from getting a bit teary-eyed at the sight of him...
