PITTSBURGH – Safety Terrell Edmunds made a false start in his first moments as an NFL player.
Edmunds was so excited to get the call from the Pittsburgh Steelers as the 28th overall pick in the NFL draft that he hurried off the toilet a little early.
"I was in the bathroom (Thursday night), using the bathroom, and I washed my hands," Edmunds said at his opening press conference at the Steelers UPMC Rooney Sports Complex. "I had my phone on the sink, Coach (Mike Tomlin) called me, I was so excited, I quickly grabbed a paper towel, dried my hands off, threw it away, my pants still unbuckled" So excited.

He was struck with a surprise ̵
"Seeing Shazier out there, who gave me the jersey, made it even more crazy for me," Edmunds said. "It was an unreal moment."  Shazier called Edmunds later that night to offer assistance.
Linebacker Tremaine Edmunds finished No. 16 overall in the Buffalo Bills and Terrell's selection made the brothers the first duo ever to go in the first round of the same draft. Elder Brother Trey Edmunds is a backup-tight ending with the New Orleans Saints.
