North Dakota State’s Kyle Emanuel Scheduled To Visit With Steelers This Week

Are you a fan of North Dakota State edge rusher Kyle Emanuel? If so, you might like to know that he’s scheduled to have a pre-draft visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, according to a previous interview that he had with our very own Chris Nicolaou.

More specifically, Emanuel told Nicolaou that he would be in Pittsburgh on April 22.

Emanuel, who was the Buchanan Award winner last season, started all 16 games last season at right defensive end for North Dakota State. He finished third on the team with a career-high 97 tackles of which 50 were solos and led the FCS with 19.5 sacks which were school and league records. He also recorded 32.5 stops for losses last season.

At the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine, Emanuel was a top performer in his position group on the bench press (27 reps). He measured in at 6-3, 255-pounds while in Indianapolis and many believe he is best-suited to play the strong outside linebacker position in a 3-4 defense at the NFL level after registering  35.5 sacks during his college career.

Many draftniks believe that Emanuel will be drafted in either the fifth or sixth round of the upcoming draft.

    Well, this increases the chances that he could be in Latrobe, Pa come July-August

  • H.K. northern cali

    I want this guy in the 5th. Nate o. In the 2nd!

  • John Hinton

    Not popular to say today, but this guy could be the Steelers next AB (…6th round gem).

    i love this guy. i hope we really take a good look at him. one of the knocks on JJ was that he was not strong, this kid is strong and the perfect size. i think of Kevin Greene type. As strong as this kid already is then a year with silverback and him and VW working out together for years to come.

    This guy or Davis Tull. Really great value, in my eyes. Praying they get depth at many positions.

    why not both hahaha, I can dream

  • Matt Manzo

    Is the strong side the left side? Worilds side?

    And on another note…this draft is starting to seem deeper and deeper to me, all around! I keep hearing it’s a weak draft at some positions but all I can find that’s lacking is OL and 3-4 DEs.
    There’s a bunch of CBs, OLBs, WRs, RBs, TEs, and Safety’s that I’d love to have in the later rounds!

    I can’t get excited about the first two rounds, but the middle rounds seems to me to be packed with value.

  • Nick

    I would love to have him, Zumwalt and Ventone running down the field on STs!

  • GoSteelerz

    Another late round gem I hope we get. I’ll be looking to see where he goes as well. This is going to be one of the more interesting drafts in recent years. Can’t wait!!!!

    I know. It makes me nervous with all the midround draft picks the Ravens have stockpiled.
