Shazier, who underwent spine stabilization surgery in December after getting hurt in a victory over Cincinnati, slowly walked onto the stage, his first public steps since sustaining the injury.
The Pittsburgh Steelers secured one of their two biggest draft needs in the first-round of the 2018 NFL Draft with the selection of former Virginia Tech safety Terrell Edmunds with the 28th overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft and general manager Kevin Colbert immediately talked about the team's newest player during the post-pick press conference.
The Buffalo Bills may have found their franchise guy in Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen and a future star linebacker in a young Tremaine Edmunds out of Virginia Tech.
The 2018 NFL Draft is tonight as Tremaine Edmunds is set to attend tonight's festivities in the green room of the NFL Draft ahead of his first round selection. His junior season in 2017 was cut short by a shoulder injury that required surgery, though Colbert said it won't be an issue when he reports for organized team activities next month. "That's my game", Edmunds said.
In addition to the 16th pick to take Edmunds, the Bills also got Baltimore's 154th overall pick. The year before, Edmunds finished with four interceptions. Coach Mike Tomlin lauded his versatility as a free safety, strong safety and subpackage linebacker. He scored 17 touchdowns in 36 career games, averaging 15.3 yards per catch.
The Steelers welcomed Bryant's return with open arms last season, but he was slow to return to form and lost his spot as the second receiver on the depth chart behind All-Pro Antonio Brown taken by rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster.
Colbert then expounded on what Tomlin said. The Steelers see improvement all the time.
"He didn't do the drill work at the combine at the doctor's recommendation", Colbert said.
