Pete Prisco: He was a guy who was really rising late in the process. The Steelers get a nice playmaking safety.

Chris Trapasso: Height, speed safety prospect with below-average recognition ability. Easily sucked in on play-action and against double moves. His athletic profile as an explosive linear athlete makes him an enticing project.
Jamey Eisenberg: The Steelers took Edmunds and added a key piece to their secondary, which will look different in 2018, with Morgan Burnett in and Mike Mitchell, Robert Golden and William Gay gone. Edmunds could be a sleeper in re-draft IDP leagues, and he's worth drafting with a third-round pick in dynasty leagues that use IDP options. Edmunds also makes the Steelers DST better in 2018.
R.J. White: A 247Sports Composite three-star recruit out of Ringgold, Virginia, Edmunds made eight starts as a redshirt freshman while racking up 34 tackles (1.5 for loss) and seven passes defensed. He broke out the following year, piling up 101 total tackles (4.5 for loss) and intercepting four passes, including one in a Belk Bowl win over Arkansas, and was named honorable mention All-ACC for his fine season.
Edmunds made just 10 starts as a junior due to shoulder surgery but still managed to be named third-team All-ACC after recording 61 tackles (2.5 for loss) with 1.5 sacks, four passes defensed and two interceptions.
