Season 8, Episode 101 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get right to recapping what happened Thursday night during the first-round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
We both give our quick overviews of what all transpired Thursday night for the Pittsburgh Steelers before diving deep into each specific topic. We start with the Steelers decision to trade wide receiver Martavis Bryant to the Oakland Raiders for a third-round selection and why it didn’t make much sense ahead of time for either side to do that deal. That said, we were both impressed with the return that the Steelers got for Bryant. We also go over the salary cap space the Steelers saved by trading Bryant in addition to talking about the current wide receiver depth chart now that he’s gone.
David and I recap the first-round of the 2018 NFL Draft and go over several specific selections. We talk a lot about what the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens both did Thursday night.
David and I finally get around to talking about the Steelers decision to draft former Virginia Tech safety Terrell Edmunds in the first-round with the 28th overall selection. We go over the reach factor with his selection and if Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert might have too many boxes for prospects to check at this point in his career.
We move on to talk more about Edmunds as a player and how the Steelers might ultimately use him out of the chute during his rookie season.
Day-two of the draft will get underway Friday night so David and I go over potential position targets for the Steelers in addition to several players they might decide to pick with their currently scheduled three selections.
We discuss the future of Steelers safety J.J. Wilcox with Edmunds now in the fold and wonder if the Steelers might add another cheap free agent wide receiver now that Bryant is gone. We even name a few names.
Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier made a monumental appearance during the draft Thursday night and David and I close the show out by discussing that topic.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
