Scouting Report for Steelers Draft target, Youngstown State EDGE Derek Rivers.
I think it’s fair to assume that acquiring some young EDGE talent is the biggest priority for the Steelers Draft class.
James Harrison, while still producing at an admirably high level, is nearing retirement. Jarvis Jones is expected to sign elsewhere in free agency, and the hopes of him ever reaching his 1st round potential are long gone.
Therefore, finding an impact EDGE rusher to pair with Bud Dupree is integral to this young defense’s future.
One name to watch may be a small school prospect at nearby Youngstown State, Derek Rivers.
