The NFL has become more and more dependent on the talent available among undrafted free agents. Going over NFL rosters, you see a growing number of UDFAs on game day rosters. This is good news for all these young men who didn’t get selected. In fact, in some cases, being able to pick their team rather than the other way around helps the prospect.
This year’s draft yielded the Pittsburgh Steelers several very talented football players. Don’t be shocked if four of five of them are key contributors in 2014. Regardless, with a draft class so deep, general manager Kevin Colbert is going to have a great pool of talent to draw from.
Pittsburgh isn’t among those franchises which have had tremendous success recently with undrafted players, but historically, linebacker James Harrison and defensive back Donnie Shell are standouts.
Be sure to keep checking back here to keep up on all the latest information on the UDFAs the Steelers sign.
