Ranking all 10 of the Pittsburgh Steelers undrafted rookie signings
By Andrew Falce
Steelers UDFA #3
One of the ignored positions during this draft, edge rusher has a lot of question marks amongst the group outside of the starters. T.D. Moultry flashed some while at Auburn, but his size makes him a hard player to bet for heading into camp. That said, he has gotten better every season while with the Tigers and could be a potential depth player this season.
Moultry’s motor is easily his best trait as a player. He never gives up on a play no matter where he is at, and that will likely endear him to future coaches and on special teams. As well, Moultry has violent hands as a pass rusher which aids in his ability to get after the quarterback. The issue with Moultry is his lack of size and length. He will struggle to get his hands onto offensive tackles at the next level.
The reason he makes it this high up the list is due to the lack of depth at edge rusher in general. As well, the lone free agent brought in, Genard Avery, is a very similar style of player to Moultry. It seems unlikely that he earns snaps over him. Unless Moultry can get some run as a core special teamer, he will likely be a practice squad player at best early on.
