Steelers scouts 'very complimentary' of South Alabama QB Ross Metheny

Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Always on the lookout for late-round and UDFA candidates, a Steelers scout reportedly liked what he saw from the Sun Belt Conference's 2013 leader in total offense.

The fledgling FBS program, South Alabama, has little by way of big school tradition. The Jaguars just finished their first season in the highest level, finishing a respectable 6-6 in the Sun Belt Conference.

Part of the fun that comes with it is getting to host a Pro Day for their respective NFL prospects. One of those includes quarterback Ross Metheny, who, as he told the Northern Virginia Daily, spoke with the Steelers - one of five NFL teams in attendance.

"The scout from the Steelers was very complimentary," Metheny told Brad Fauber. "He said some very positive things and mentioned the possibility of maybe going to a camp. The rest of the scouts all kind of said the same thing."

Also in attendance at the workout was linebacker Clifton Crews, an athletic UDFA prospect and tackling machine during his time in Mobile, Ala., with USA. He posted an impressive 4.56 40-yard dash time.

AL.com also confirmed defensive end Pat Moore, wide receiver Bryant Lavender, linebacker Bryson James, defensive back Tyrell Pearson, defensive back Charles Watson, defensive lineman Montavious Williams, defensive back Darrius Morrow, defensive back Alonzo Long, tight end Jared Palmer, linebacker Enrique Williams, offensive lineman Matt Calcagnini, outside linebacker/safety David Hawkins, running back Demetre Baker, wide receiver Derrick Hector and running back Terrell Edwards-May who played at Marshall and Concordia-Selma, worked out.
