The Pittsburgh Steelers rookies are currently at minicamp, and there are a lot of black-and-gold fans who are still wrapping their heads around the newest additions to the team.

Everyone knows about Mason Rudolph and Terrell Edmunds, but the one player many fans might still be learning about would be Jaylen Samuels, the fifth round pick from North Carolina State.

While some writers are suggesting the Steelers won’t get many contributions from their rookie class, Samuels certainly could break down this line of thinking. The man dubbed “Mr. Everything” in the below highlight film is certainly just that.

Mr. Everything

Samuels is truly the jack of all trades. A player who can run the ball, run routes, block and when in the open field is truly dangerous.

He certainly isn’t an every down player as a rookie, but someone would could definitely put his hand in the pile and help contribute to the team.

Check out the highlight reel below, and while it is easy to show a player’s best plays, it is clear after watching just what Samuels can bring to the black-and-gold in 2018.
