Steelers Sign 10 UDFAs

Now that the NFL draft is over, teams are beginning to sign undrafted free agents. As teams officially announce their entire UDFA classes, we’ll be posting them. The Steelers became the first team to make such an announcement, inking a crop of ten players:

The Steelers didn’t sign any of the biggest names available, but a few of the signings are notable. McMillan spent the first three years of his career at Virginia Tech before transferring to Colorado, and he had a very productive senior season. Last year he carried the ball 201 times for 1,009 yards and seven touchdowns. The last Colorado running back to sign as an undrafted free agent was Phillip Lindsay, and he ended up making the Pro Bowl. McMillan will be competing for a backup spot behind James Conner.

Wright is the all-time career points leader at UCF. The Steelers signing a kicker is notable because Chris Boswell struggled mightily last season. Boswell had been widely regarded as one of the league’s best kickers, but he collapsed last year. There was talk of the Steelers replacing Boswell mid-season during the 2018 campaign, and Wright should have a legitimate shot at unseating him in training camp.

    Love the draft class. Top 4 picks could all develop into something special (although I see Diontae as more of a short-term return guy,,, so was that the start of AB & Emmanuel Sanders initial roles as special teamers.

    Ben, Dobbs, Rudolph
    James, Jaylon, Snell
    Juju, Moncrief, Washington, Eli, Diontae
    Vance, Gentry
    In-short the O-line is stacked with mouths to feed on the bench. Top3 NFL line

    Super young, high upside offense for Big Been to work with.
