Steelers Host Minnesota S Brock Vereen, South Carolina WR Bruce Ellington For Friday Pre Draft Visits
The Pittsburgh Steelers are again hosting a few more players for pre draft visits on Friday as it is being reported that Minnesota safety Brock Vereen and South Carolina wide receiver Bruce Ellington are both in town.
Vereen, who measured in at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine at 5115 and 199 pounds, finished the 2013 regular season with 56 tackles, one interception, six passes broken up, one forced fumble and 2.5 tackles for loss. He ran a 4.47 40-yard dash in Indianapolis and did 25 reps on the bench. He is projected by many to be a day-three draft pick. He is also the younger brother of Patriots running back Shane Vereen.
Ellington, who measures in at 5093 and 197 pounds, ran a 4.45 40-yard dash in Indianapolis and also posted a respectable 39.5″ vertical jump. In 2013, Ellington was South Carolina’s top receiver with 49 catches for 775 yards and eight touchdowns. He also returned five kickoffs for a 21.6-yard average and three punts for a 5.3-yard average.
