Steelers underrated player #1

The hate Terrell Edmunds gets as a player is really too much. Sure, the former first-round pick had a slow start to his career, and he hasn’t been a dynamic player all the time, but he isn’t a bad starter. He has made small improvements every season to this point, and now he is a solid starter who you know what to expect during any given game.

It seems like Edmunds has an unfair perspective due to his early struggles. Similar to a Bud Dupree, Edmunds took a few seasons to find his way. That led to a group lambasting him and claiming he was a bust. While his improvements haven’t been as obvious as Dupree’s, he has still become a steady starter. Yet, there are still people that hold the same opinions about him as before.

While Edmunds isn’t perfect as a player, he knows this defense and is an average starter in this secondary. Anyone saying otherwise is wrong. People seem set on only viewing him as a bust due to his slow start to his career. I expect a good season out of him though, as he has continuously improved and is set to benefit from a great defense around him.
