The Pittsburgh Steelers rookie mincamp gets underway on Friday and 52 players are scheduled to take part in it.
The Steelers nine draft picks, nine undrafted players and 14 first year players that were signed will be joined by 20 other undrafted players and that are being given tryouts over the weekend.
First year players are also allowed to take part in the rookie camp and that list is headlined by wide receiver Justin Brown, who was drafted by the Steelers last April in the sixth-round.
As far as the players being brought in for tryouts goes, current Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin can serve as an inspiration to all of them. Garvin, who went undrafted last year, was signed by the Steelers after impressing the coaching staff as a tryout player. Garvin didn’t stop there as he wound up making the final 53 man roster out of training camp and even dressed for the season opener against the Tennessee Titans. In total, he dressed for 15 games in 2013.
