Tull was the Defensive Player of the Year for the Southern Conference the last three seasons. Last year he recorded 58 total tackles and 10.5 sacks in 14 games. 18 of his tackles resulted in loses and he was credited with nine hurries and two forced fumbles. During his four-year college career, Tull registered 36.5 sacks in 48 games played.
Tull measures in at 6-2, 246-pounds and he has 31 1/4-inch arms. At the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine, Tull registered a 42.5-inch vertical jump and an impressive 132-inch broad jump.
Tull had a right labrum injury that prevented him from playing in the 2015 East-West Shrine Game and he was also limited at the combine with a left hamstring strain.
Many project that Tull will be drafted somewhere in the third or fourth round. He will reportedly turn 24 in November.
The Steelers have brought in several outside linebackers over the course of the last few weeks. Tull is the second small school player at the position as North Dakota State’s Kyle Emanuel has also visited with the team.
