Hodges excelled as a red zone and vertical option split away from the formation at Virginia Tech. He flashed this skill last year in Vikings' camp but the Vikings cut him due to a severe concussion and he was on the Panthers practice squad before signing with the Steelers. If featured like Jimmy Graham, he could fulfill that type of role with strong production and Pittsburgh gives him a strong opportunity to do just that if he can catch their eye in camp. Still a huge longshot.
