The 2018 NFL Draft is complete and the Pittsburgh Steelers have already landed a few coveted undrafted free agents. NFL teams start trying to sign these UDFAs the second the draft ends and the moves became official this week.
While most UDFAs end up being little more than camp bodies, there are players that make the 53-man roster each season. The prospects all went undrafted for a reason, but they all have the potential to make it in the NFL in some role. And sometimes, teams strike gold with an Arian Foster or Tony Romo.
We have every player the Steelers have signed below.
Olasunkanmi Adeniyi, LB, Toledo
Parker Cothren, DT, Penn State
Jarvion Franklin, RB, Western Michigan
Greg Gilmore, DT, LSU
Quadree Henderson, WR, Pittsburgh
Trey Johnson, CB, Villanova
Pharoah McKever, TE, North Carolina State
Patrick Morris, C, TCU
Ikenna Nwokeji, OL, Elon
Chris Schleuger, G, UAB
Jamar Summers, CB, UConn
Matthew Thomas, LB, Florida State
Kendal Vickers, DE, Tennessee
It's a decent-sized group for the Steelers.
Perhaps the most notable player on the list is Pitt wide receiver Quadree Henderson, who was a quality gadget player for the Panthers over the course of the last two years and could make the Steelers rosters as a versatile threat and return man.
Another potential contributor is Kendal Vickers, who was a starter for Tennessee for two years and is a quality run defender.
