2015 Draft

Steelers Have Personnel Present For CSU-Pueblo Pro Day

While Dane Brugler of CBS Sports thought it was worth mentioning on Twitter that the Pittsburgh Steelers had someone present at the CSU-Pueblo Pro Day that took place on Monday, I doubt that someone was there to only see late-round quarterback Chris Bonner throw.

While the 6-foot-7 Bonner is likely getting most of the attention Monday, the Steelers probably sent someone to get a close look at undersized defensive end Darius Allen, who led Division II with 15 1/2 sacks in 2014 on his way to being named the Gene Upshaw Award winner. Allen fits best at the NFL level as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense and the Steelers might target him as an undrafted free agent, as he reminds you a little of Howard Jones, who the Steelers signed last year as an undrafted edge rusher out of Shepherd.

In addition to having interest in Allen, the Steelers might also want to get a close look at cornerback C.J. Roberts, who recorded 7 interceptions and 56 total tackles in 2014. Like Allen, Roberts is likely to go undrafted.
