Steelers Met With CB DeAndre Elliott During Colorado State’s Pro Day

Not a huge surprise on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ front but two short pieces of news from the team’s visit to Colorado State’s Pro Day yesterday.

The team took the time to meet with cornerback DeAndre Elliott, according to insider Tony Pauline.

Elliott only participated in the bench press, apparently due to a hamstring injury. But he performed at the Combine as well as one could hope for. He ran a 4.55, jumped 41 inches, 10’5″ in the broad, a 3.94 short shuttle, and 6.93 three cone.

Standing in at 6’0/7 188, he started 33 games in his career. He intercepted seven career passes, including two in his senior season.

One other side note. Joey Porter helped put linebacker Cory James through drills, according to Gil Brandt. James did well, turning in a 4.59 40, a 35 inch vertical, and 10’7″ broad. He was moved to linebacker in 2015, lowering his sack totals, but still finished with 24 in his career. James is projected as a late round pick.

    Nice to see them take a look at a guy like Elliot. Showed something at the combine. Can’t wait to see an analysis of him. Nobody has mentioned Cory James, but seems like an athletic guy familiar with Joey Porter. Could be an under the radar prospect that fits in with us… We’ll see…

    Sounds like an UDFA from what I can find out about him.

    Yeah, too many mid round guys don’t even make it through camp. Pass.

    How many Steelers FO/Coaches and which ones will be at OSU on Friday?

  • Frank Cordaro

    Haven’t heard of Elliot will have to read up

  • PittsburghSports

    Ha, well we need 90 guys for camp.

  • PittsburghSports

    I would say all of them lol. Only Oregon State, Georgia State, and West Alabama have Pro Days tomorrow beside OSU.

    I get worried about these young players with all these hamstring problems they never heal easy and it takes time or surgery to repair so drafting players even in FA if you dont need them right away you can take a chance on them but red flag

    Shaquille Barrett was under the radar, except to those who were familiar with CSU football. But James is no Barrett.

  • Donald Tillman

    His sparq score is top 5 in the CB group and 3rd in the six foot corners. I think they will draft this guy.
