Stanford DB Devon Carrington Will Tryout For Steelers At Rookie Mini Camp

At the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers announced that Stanford cornerback Devon Carrington was one of 10 undrafted free agents that the team had come to terms with. On Monday, Steelers PR man Burt Lauten announced on Twitter that Carrington will instead be tryout player this coming weekend at the rookie mini camp.

Carrington, a versatile defensive back that played both cornerback and safety at Stanford, played in 14 games in 2013 and recorded 33 tackles (21 solo) and four pass breakups.

At his March Pro Day, Carrington, who measures in at just over six feet, reportedly ran a 4.65 second 40-yard dash time.

    By my count that makes 90men on the offseason roster… but, don’t we need another placekicker in camp in case of injury…

  • Kevin Gobleck

    and what about Harrison if we choose to bring him back?

  • steeltown

    I know we have around 16OL players signed right now, they could probably reduce that down by one or maybe two

    They do but camp is a long ways off.

    I was surprised when I read an analysis of Josh Mauro, a free agent DE signed by the Steelers. One writer from a prominent sports web site said “Offers little as a traditional pass rusher. While quick, strong and
    determined, does not possess the top-end speed or the flexibility to
    turn the corner and close in a flash. COMPARES TO: Brett Keisel, Steelers — Don’t count on Mauro for blinding
    speed off the edge but his size, strength and toughness could make him a
    dependable five-technique defensive end, like the Steelers’ Keisel.”
