Report: Nebraska WR Quincy Enunwa To Visit With Steelers This Week


The Pittsburgh Steelers are finishing up their pre draft visits with players this week and it appears as though one more wide receiver is headed to town.

According to Eric Edholm of Yahoo Sports on Twitter, Nebraska wide receiver Quincy Enunwa has a visit lined up this week with the Steelers.

At the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, Enunwa measured in at 6’2″ and weighed 225 pounds. He ran a 40-yard dash time of 4.45, but a hamstring injury prevented him from doing the other drills. He did, however, manage to do 19 reps on the bench. The hamstring injury unfortunately carried over to his Pro Day.

Last season, Enunwa caught 51 passes for 753 yards and 12 touchdowns. 10 of those touchdowns came inside the red zone.

About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • steeltown

    Wow I wasn’t really considering this kid, but that’s good speed for his size and 10 of 12 touchdowns inside the redzone is a plus. Good blocker and a Team captain. I’d take a flyer on him in the late Rds.

  • blackandgoldBullion

    This makes me wonder how many combine invitees will not even be drafted. Certainly most will be drafted, but a few could be the kind of specialist that the Steelers could use even if they get someone like this as a UDFA. If he works out, he would be considered a 3rd down/Red Zone specialist or WR 4 or 5. If he can play ST, he would have a shot to surpass J Brown and others and potentially make the team.

  • Jason

    Man there seems to be so many potentialy good receivers in this draft. I may be in the minority but we had a WR last year with 110 catches and 1,500 yds so we don’t really have to draft a #1 guy like Watkins or Evans even though we would likely jump on either should they fall for some reason. I wouldn’t mind going defense,defense and waiting till the 3rd again for a WR

  • steeltown

    Agreed. There really aren’t that many 2nd Rd guys I like, except maybe Jordan Matthews and Allen Robinson

  • cp72

    I actually like this kid. Nebraska was a running team with a running quarterback. When they did throw the ball his way he seemed to make big plays. If he’d played in a pass first offense he’d had gaudy numbers. Would be a great late round flier.

  • cp72

    See this is the way I feel about the corner position. I really don’t see a huge gap between Jalen Watkins and Dennard. You might be able to get Watkins in the 3rd to 4th round.

    I see more of a gap between Beckham, Benjamin, Lee and the next group of guys. That’s why I think WR earlier than later.

  • steeltown

    Yea but earlier where? All the names you mentioned aren’t worth the 15th overall selection IMO but at the same time they will most likely all be gone by the 46th, im sort of thinking we go WR in the 3rd again, unless one of the aforementioned falls to us in the 2nd Rd

  • cp72

    I think if we’re gonna pick a receiver in that group it has to be at 15. To me to say a guy isnt worth the 15th pick and then say he’s worth the 25th pick doesn’t make much sense.

    If we can trade down I say go for it, but if the guy you like is there don’t mess around just pick him.

  • steeltown

    I understand that thinking, just don’t want to reach for a WR that high when the draft is so deep. Still hoping someone falls in our laps making the decision easy, like Anthony Barr

  • Doug Sawyer

    I’d like to trade back to 30 land a receiver then draft 2 CB’s and 2 DT’s in the second and third

  • steeltown

    Definitely trading back would be the ideal course of action

  • cp72

    I like Barr but what do you do with Gildon and Jones. Can only play two of those guys.

  • cp72

    Yeah I think 25 to 30 is really good sweet spot to pick a WR and add an pick or two in the later rounds.

  • steeltown

    Well I think Worilds and Jones would start, but Worilds still isn’t locked up long term and Jones is an enigma… can never have enough LBs in a 3-4 system IMO but it probably wont happen so..

  • grw1960

    I don’t know much about this Wr. Except what I read just now on CBS sports . Not much on him. But what there is is good Stuff.
    Got to wonder as deep as this draft is. Will the Steelers draft him late or try to sign him as a UFDA.
    Guess we will find out what the Steelers really think of him on the last day of the draft. OF course if by some miracle Evens falls to 15 , maybe we won’t?

  • Craig Ressler

    Not much of a hands catcher as he tends to let a lot of passes come into his body but he has a solid physical frame and good size/speed combo. If we would pass on a WR earlier in the draft, I would be for them using a later pick on him.

  • Doug Sawyer

    Conversely,I think CB is the biggest issue we need to address and I think we need more than 1 pick in the top 4 at addressing that…problem being is,If you pick your guy at 15 a CB…and then draft another CB in the 2nd or 3rd it seems like you are undermining your decision of taking Your guy at 15 …I honestly think CB’s tend to be busts more than the share of time,at least that’s the Steelers track record…that’s why I want Pittsburgh to address it multiple times in the top 3 rounds.

  • dgh57

    Trading back may not be that easy as a lot of teams may be looking to be doing the same thing with it being a deep draft in certain areas.

  • michael

    Colbert only ever traded back once; in 2001 he traded pick 16 to the jets for pick 19 and their 4th and 6th rounders. Pick 19 brought Casey Hampton.

  • shawn

    ya thinking the same … haven’t seen or heard of the kid … will check him out, but on paper like the RZ, Size & Speed Combo !

  • shawn

    what about Adams … in the 2nd, the guy seems like a beast !

  • steelster

    I agree

  • steeltown

    I like Adams, tons of production over a 2yr span

  • StarSpangledSteeler

    It’s so funny you wrote that because I’ve been thinking the same thing lately. You want an impact play maker on defense? Shazier is probably your guy.

    The guy has blazing speed. Position flexibility. Outstanding character. Team player. Big school. Low bust potential. And he makes splash plays.

    You know LeBeau/Butler can find a way to fit him into our scheme. He’s as fast as a safety. And has good instincts.

  • Steelers@2010

    I agree; if Gilbert is sitting there at #15, I say take him. I think they should look to go DE in the 2nd as well. They can always look for WR in the 3rd RD, I’m sure there will be value there still.

  • Steelers@2010

    What about the kid from Penn State?

  • Steelers@2010

    I really don’t see what they hype is over Dennard and the kid from Ohio State – Roby. I think both of them are highly over-rated.

  • Steelers@2010

    I agree, but I disagree as well. I agree that CB is the biggest need on the team. I disagree that CB’S tend to be more of a bust than other positions in the draft. I agree that the Steelers have selected more duds at the CB position than any position I can recall the past 10 yrs. The F/O has done a horrible job selecting these kids. And Roby out of Ohio State, if they select this kid at #15, I will go Nuts! He is soooo overrated.

  • Weiss Chad

    Dennards doing something right .only gave up 104 rds all yr on 18 receptions outta 118 attempts for the second lowest completion pct ever.giving up less than a yard an attempt and an avg of 5 yes a catch .Numbers are hard to ignore

  • Doug Sawyer

    look at it like this…is anyone of the top 5 guys the next Rod Woodson?…nope? then draft a guy you can build into a starter in the second and third round

  • Doug Sawyer

    true but the Big 10 is also not a power house in the passing game either …side by side I’d take Fuller over Dennard everyday

  • Jacque Strappe

    I think he’s a project. Great physical attributes, but a project. And to comment on the needs in this draft, if they don’t draft DL somewhere early, this team is in some trouble forthcoming. Personally, I hope CB is the first selection. However, if a quality DL is available in the 2nd, I think you have to take it if he fits the scheme. Otherwise, I think you could just as easily hit on a WR in any round and they fit. That position is simply stacked with athletes this draft.

  • AndyR34

    Good call…all these faux GM’s talk about just trade back because blah…blah…blah! Notice none of them say who they are going to trade with…why that team wants to give up draft choices to move up to 15…or how this may not be the best year to trade back…since “everyone else” wants to as well…at least that’s what Colbert was supposing.

  • Steve

    What about drafting OT? DId you thing they did well at that?

  • steelster

    I like cody Hoffman over enunwa. Watched some highlights on this guy and noticed he caught the ball with his body.

  • Weiss Chad

    I like Fuller also.I would be more than ok w fuller.I would like to see them maybe trade back to get him but if they take him at 1.15 I think it would be fair value

  • Alex Redfield

    Well, Dennard is the best cover corner in the draft. He is pretty physical and a willing tackler. The only knock on his is that he isn’t an elite athlete. I don’t think he is over rated at all.

    Roby is interesting because he is an elite athlete but was inconsistent his junior year. He has great speed, and good ball skills. Good hands, and is a fantastic tackler. In all honesty, he is a perfect schematic fit in Pittsburgh. His sophomore year was incredible, and he was an All-American for it. His junior year was not as good, but as a Buckeye fan I believe it had more to do with Christian Bryant (starting safety) being hurt all year. Our safeties were ATROCIOUS. CJ Barnett is a joke. Roby is an aggressive corner, and take some chances to make big plays. His safeties really hung him out to dry a few times over the course of the season, and he gave up a few big games to opposing WR’s over the season (Wisconsin in particular).

  • Mathew Bossinger

    I like him in the 7th and Devin Street in the 5th. I think 1 – 5 should all be defense.

  • Mathew Bossinger

    I like Stephon Tuitt in the 2nd. I’m also hoping for Pat O’Donnell in the 6th.

  • steeltown

    I like him, but I don’t know about 46th overall

  • steeltown

    Oh man if we somehow got Tuitt in the 2nd I would be ecstatic

  • Steelers@2010

    Take a look at the quality WR’s he faced. His skill set will not translate to the NFL. I hope he’s gone by the time they pick at #15.

  • Steelers@2010

    I hear what you’re saying, but when is the last time they have done that? Picking scrubs = duds. I’m baffled; I don’t know what their process is for evaluating DB’s, but I can tell you this much, since 1997 when they drafted Chad Scott, every since then they have drafted poorly as a whole.

  • Steelers@2010

    Well, lets evaluate their current roster; Beachum, Foster, Pouncey, DeCastro and Gilbert. DeCastro, Foster and Beachum = B-. Pouncey is over-rated, he played well his rookie season, I will give him that. But every since, he has made the Pro-Bowl based on hype IMO. Gilbert and Mike Adams are two of the same, both are too soft and weak. I would grade those thre as a C-

  • Steelers@2010

    But to risk a #15 pick on a guy that was inconsistent last yr is too risky. If he’s still there in the 3rd, sure.

  • Weiss Chad

    I can’t blame him for who he lines up against.i see a physical shutdown cb who can also play the run.The only concern I have is contact .im not worried about his speed as he makes that up w technique and jamming and retorting wr .Just out of curiosity who do you want them to draft in rd 1.I am in favor however of trading back .

  • Weiss Chad

    The guy don’t tackle.he is battle tested and will prob be an ok cb IMO.I don’t see him fitting system at all.i think fuller actually fits system best..I just can’t ignore dennards stats.if you’re gonna say they are watered down due to talent than the same would have to be said for roby but dennards never been lit up like roby

  • Steelers@2010

    For Years the Steelers have elected to draft a DB better at defending the run (tackling) opposed to their cover skills. I think you teach a DB how to tackle, but if they haven’t developed good cover techniques by the time they get to the NFL, it’s useless. I would take Gilbert, the best pure CB in this class. He has great Special Teams skills, he could take over those duties currently held by Antonio Brown. The NFL is a passing league now anyway, very few teams run the ball.

  • Steelers@2010

    I agree with you about Roby; if anyone selects that guy prior to the 3rd RD, I see Busts all over him. I’m sure LeBeau is lobbying for him though, he always seems to lobby for players from Ohio State. Just like when they selected Mike Adams (BUST). I’ve heard a few people say that about Gilbert, you could be right.But I still think his coverage skills is worthy of a high 1st RD pick.
