Steelers selected NC State RB Jaylen Samuels with the No. 165 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
Samuels (6’0/225) was an all-purpose receiver/tailback/tight end for the Wolfpack, graduating with a career 201/1,851/9.2/19 receiving line and 182/1,107/6.1/12 rushing. He played extensively on special teams. PFF College charted Samuels with 70 career missed tackles forced – 38 on carries and 32 after the catch – and 42 slot receptions in 2017, second most in this year’s tight end class. Samuels helped himself with 68th-percentile SPARQ results at the Combine, including 4.54 speed. Samuels offers similarities to Bears TE Trey Burton as a catch-first weapon in the middle of the field. It's worth noting that the Steelers announced Samuels as a running back when they drafted him on Saturday. Apr 28 - 3:15 PM
