In addition to the 10 undrafted free agents that the Pittsburgh Steelers signed a few days ago, quite a few other players will be in attendance at the team’s rookie mini camp that will get underway this coming weekend. While we have already been able to identify several of those invitees, we now have a new one to pass along to you.
According to an official release by Northern Michigan, wide receiver Marcus Tucker has been invited by the Steelers to take part in the team’s rookie mini camp on a tryout basis.
Tucker, who reportedly measured in at his March pro day at 5-10, 192 pounds, led Northern Michigan last season in receptions (79), tied for first in receiving touchdowns (9) and ranked second in receiving yards (813). The two-time captain also averaged 25.1 yards on kickoff returns last season, according to the school’s website. At his pro day, Tucker reportedly ran his 40-yard dash in 4.55 and registered a vertical jump of 34.5-inches in addition to doing 13 reps on the bench.
The Steelers will have quite a few wide receivers present at this year’s rookie mini camp and that group will include Demarcus Ayers, who was selected by the team in the seventh-round out of Houston. After the annual NFL selection process ended, the Steelers also signed former Virginia wide receiver Canaan Severin.
