Ohio State RB/KR Jordan Hall and (Hall did not sign, per Steelers PR manager Burt Lauten). UAB OT Kaycee Ike have reportedly signed UDFA deals with the Steelers.
- Rock 94.7 is reporting Wisconsin DE Ethan Hemer signed a UDFA with the Steelers. Big guy, good movement, I didn't see a whole lot of him, but if Beau Allen was drafted, Hemer probably should have been.
- Another zone-blocker...if the Steelers weren't gonna run zone often, they wouldn't bother. He's a local guy, too, so that's always something to root for.
BREAKING: Beaver Falls native Chris Elkins signs with the #Steelers.— BCT Sports (@timesscores) May 11, 2014

Shepherd Lb Howard Jones signs with the #Steelers— Shane P. Hallam (@ShanePHallam) May 10, 2014
- Now we're talkin'...athletic pass rusher, generally unknown but good potential. These are the kinds of players the Steelers need to bring in and in mass quantity.
Mizzou TE Eric Waters is signing with Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) May 10, 2014
- It looks like Blanchflower has some competition.
One interesting note of Waters, he was Michael Sam's roommate at Missouri, and raised a stir when he questioned the sincerity of some of his teammates who said they supported Sam. As far as football goes, Waters is a high-character guy, good athleticism but stuck in a tweener role in Missouri. He's definitely a player to keep an eye on in training camp.
