All 91 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 91 members of the Steelers 2019 training camp roster.
41 • Dravon Askew-Henry, rookie safety
Last year: The Aliquippa native had a stellar season for West Virginia as a senior and started all 51 career games in his career to set a Mountaineers record. Signed with the Steelers right after the draft as a UDFA and took part in minicamp and OTAs.
Stats: Tied for forth on the team with 54 tackles. Also had five tackles for a loss and two interceptions.
Honorable mention All-Big 12.
Camp outlook: In a crowded house at strong safety, behind former first-round draft pick Terrell Edmunds and veteran special teamer Jordan Dangerfield. Askew-Henry has experience as a hybrid linebacker in West Virginia’s 3-3-5 defense, so he could make some noise with strong play in sub packages, particularly the Dime. His experience in OTAs and minicamp will provide and advantage over later additions to the secondary.
Projected role: There isn’t an obvious path to a spot on the 53-man roster, but Askew-Henry is tough and durable and can play multiple positions. Seems like a perfect practice squad player.
