Abilene Christian WR Edmond Gates To Visit Steelers Next Week
Abilene Christian wide receiver Edmond Gates will make a pre draft visit to Pittsburgh early next week according to his draft journal. Gates ran in the low 4.3 range at the NFL Combine back in late February and measured in at 5 foot 11 and 3/4 inches while tipping the scales at 192 pounds. He is considered a raw talent, but can stretch the field. Like most young receivers, Gates needs to polish his route running, on-field awareness and blocking skills. In 2010 Gates had 66 catches for 1182 yards and 13 touchdowns. Gates is currently projected to be drafted in the 3rd or 4th round and will be a a 25-year-old rookie.
