A 21st undrafted free agent player was signed by the Steelers this morning as Northwestern defensive lineman Corbin Bryant was signed. The Steelers had some interest in Bryant prior to the draft as he reportedly was one of the 30 players they had in for a pre draft visit.
The 6-foot-4, 298-pound Bryant ran the 40-yard dash in 5.02 seconds at his Pro Day workout bench pressed 225 pounds 31 times as 28 NFL teams attended the workout. He also ran a 4.55 short shuttle, a 7.34 three-cone drill and turned in a 27 1/2 inch vertical leap and an 8 foot 6 broad jump.
Bryant recorded eight tackles for losses last year, one interception, six quarterback hurries, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble and was named honorable-mention All-Big Ten Conference for his play.
