Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said fifth-round rookie Jaylen Samuels is "highly evolved in the passing game."
Samuels has been working as a running back with the Steelers, but he played everywhere during his time at NC State. That experience has given him some earned confidence in the passing game. "Not to be cocky or anything, but I just feel like I have great hands, great route-running," Samuels said. "As a runner, I can make guys miss in open space. That's kind of what I did in college, try to make guys miss in open space." Samuels is at best looking at a backup role behind Le'Veon Bell, but it would not be surprising to see him make some plays as a rookie. Jun 18 - 9:52 AM
