    Steelers Depot has them listed.

    Dravon Askew-Henry, S, West Virginia
    Ian Berryman, P, Western Carolina
    Garrett Brumfield, G, LSU
    Jay Hayes, DE, Georgia
    Fred Johnson, G, Florida
    Travon McMillan, RB, Colorado
    Alexander Myres, CB, Houston
    Chris Nelson, DT, Texas
    Trevor Wood, TE/LS, Texas A&M
    Matthew Wright, K, Central Florida


    Chris Nelson and Travon McMillan seem intriguing to me. Glad we have another punter and kicker in camp. I know nothing about Hayes?

    Was hoping they'd sign Coney, Raiders signed him though.

    Can't believe he went undrafted, PFF had him as the 57th best prospect.

    Dravon Askew-Henry had met with the Steelers at the West Virgina Pro Day. Stiff in the hips for a Free Safety though. Has some explosive capabilities for certain. A possible depth option if he sticks.


    Matthew Wright is intriguing for certain. Cris has some decent competition it seems. A record holder for multiple PAT and other kicking accolades at the Univeristy of Central Florida. He is also a PA Native from Lancaster.

    Is anyone else worried about the OLB depth like I am? Looks like they haven't even brought in any help in the UDFA class. Sutton Smith is too light as 230 to play outside. Seems like a good day for Bud Dupree and his prospects to stick with the Steelers beyond 2019.

    I'm not surprised, I said pre-draft that OLB wouldn't be sniffed. They just paid Dupree and they picked Ola over Matt Thomas at ILB, a position that has big holes. Plus they paid Keion Adams top dollar on the practice squad so he wouldn't get poached. All that movement shows they were content with what they have.

    Many are not a fan of Dupree, but the FO seems to think otherwise I guess.

    They may have found someone there that might stick around in McMillan.

    Any of the offensive linemen got good shots Steelers really avoided offensive line unless you count round 7.

    But Steelers love undrafted offensive linemen

    See Al V, Ramon Foster,Matt Fleir
    And BJ Finney, All starters or have started games before

    Really surprised by some of the names that went undrafted to be honest. Lodge was one of them.

    LB Tevon Coney went undrafted and signed with the 'Skins I think. LB Terrill Hanks signed with the Dolphins. WR Stanley Morgan Jr signed with the Bengals unfortunately. There were some others I'm sure.

    I’m not surprised. I watched a couple of Lodge’s games, and I didn’t see much to be excited over.

    I’m pretty surprised about Coney. I figured he’d land somewhere in the 4th - 6th round. I watched a handful of his games, and I think he’s a very smart LB who can develop into a Vince Williams+ kind of guy. However I liked his teammate Drue Tranquill more as a prospect.

    we also added quite a few last year that we kept around so we are much deeper than it appears. :cool:

    Guys over at draft network had a 3rd rd grade on him.

    Lot of players dropped. Look at all the guys we fawned over that dropped out of the first rd or further. Players drop every year but seemed excessive this year.

    Dravon Askew-Henry Watched him play almost every game in college. Lacks size and speed for an NFL safety IMO but his toughness is unquestioned. Very tough against the run and above average coverage Safety but lacks speed on the outside. He always looked pretty good for a guy who had below average LB's and average Corners in front of him. That being said, I hope he makes it.

    Well I am glad they did not draft a kicker, but also pleased they brought in more competition. Being limited to a 90 man roster you really do not want 5 places taken up by kickers (2 punters, 3 PK), but Bos needs challenged and McCrane's career stats are not really that impressive.

    I’m biased but McCrane’s career stats very impressive. #7 ALL time NCAA career % accuracy. Broke many of Gramatica’s records, College Freshman All American. NEVER missed an extra point in college or NFL (1 blocked freshman year). 5 NFL games played, 2 game balls. Perfect for two NFL teams, Missed 4 FG’s ( 2 off dirt in Oakland(1 moving when kicked) and a 57 yd against the wind before half as hitting 60 yarders pregame the other direction.
    One game for Steelers, kicked once in 3 weeks prior and lost 10 pounds as thought season over. Practiced 1 1/2 hours pregame and went 100% but YES, not that pretty and kickoffs short due to limited practice. Kicked for 5 1/2 years and thought season over after getting cut by Cardinals for the 3rd time, even though 100% all kicks preseason and 1 in season. Lesson learned but wanted to point out the facts to his rookie year.
