Ranking all 10 of the Pittsburgh Steelers undrafted rookie signings
By Andrew Falce
Steelers UDFA #4
Now we get into the top undrafted free agents. The top four share two positions and are some of the more talented names to come out of this group. Add in the Steelers inherent need at both of these positions and it becomes clear that these names are the best bets to make an impact sooner rather than later for this roster.
Jaylen Warren was one of the more productive running backs in college last season for Oklahoma State last year. He finally got his shot to shine as the primary runner in an offense and he didn’t look back. A lot of what the Cowboy’s offense was running through Warren. He produced both as a physical runner and a surprisingly efficient receiver.
Warren lacks elite size and athleticism though, and that is likely why he ended up going undrafted this year. Despite being an efficient back, he needs to overcome some of his deficiencies in order to become a capable reserve back. If he were a little bigger or a little faster, Warren would have a better shot, but his odds aren’t great due to his lacking physical traits.
