I'm sorry. Drafting players only to make them learn new positions is just not that smart. Sure, it can work out, but more often than not, it adds another hurdle to an already arduous task of making the transition to the NFL. Then we will have to hear the obligatory, "He needs time to learn the system..." Add in that you are putting a small guy at ILB who has already been noted for "willing hitter who takes hits more than he gives them" and you have an injury trend waiting to develop. To me this is Butler's make or break moment: Playing safeties at ILB better work out, or maybe he should be replaced. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2783076-every-nfl-teams-riskiest-move-this-offseason The Steelers will give first-rounder Terrell Edmunds a chance to show his versatility. He took reps at linebacker through rookie minicamp. On one hand, it seems logical to keep rookies focused on their natural or most recently played position early, but the Steelers may have bigger plans for the Virginia Tech product, per Pittsburgh Gazette reporter Gerry Dulac: "Right now, Edmunds, a safety who will play like a linebacker in some of the Steelers sub-packages, is trying to absorb as much as he can as quickly as he can, knowing he will be an early contributor in Keith Butler’s defensive schemes." Pittsburgh signed ninth-year veteran Morgan Burnett to a three-year deal. He'll pair with Sean Davis at the starting safety spots. It's possible the coaching staff could prepare Edmunds to fill in for inside linebacker Ryan Shazier, whose future remains uncertain due to a spinal injury. Edmunds lined up in different spots in the Hokies defense, but a fluctuating role could hinder his development, especially if he's overthinking instead of moving freely. Training camp will shed more light on his fit in certain packages, but the coaching staff may put the 21-year-old on the fast track to a prominent role.
