While his instincts, cover skills, and overall football IQ make Terrell Edmunds one of the great safeties to play in the NFL, his mental fortitude and work ethic have allowed him to reach an elite level in his career.
During Terrell’s time at Virginia Tech, Hokies Head Coach Justin Fuente described him as the team’s best defensive back…despite playing with a torn labrum his final collegiate season before going pro. Though this injury created much uncertainty around where Terrell would end up, he never faltered and kept faith that everything would pan out as it should… And so it did. Terrell was drafted 28th overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2018 NFL Draft, and by week three of regular season, he would earn the starting strong safety position as a rookie.
Today, Terrell continues to dominate. Through his outgoing personality and communication skills on field, he has emerged as leader - the QB of the Steelers’ secondary.
