The Latest From Connecticut’s pro day
Inside Pittsburgh Sports has learned the Steelers had two representatives in attendance for Connecticut’s pro day which was held this afternoon.
Primary players of interest
CB Darius Butler, 5-10, 187 – projected to be late first round/early second round pick. Steelers were seen talking to Butler at the combine
OT Will Beatty, 6-6, 307 – Projected late first round – second round
A source emailed me that Darius Butler ran a 4.38 forty yard-dash and was very impressive in drills
Will Beatty was also impressive with 31 reps – 225 lbs
I can’t confirm this because I haven’t seen the official times but I was also told that Butler
ran 4.39 forty yard dash in his second run. Very good numbers and consistent which is big for Butler’s draft stock.
Butler is a strong possibility at 32 for the Steelers and would also be groomed as a kick returner.
Beatty is seen as a right tackle in the NFL and his performance today has also helped his stock. Most people see him as a second rounder but could sneak into the 1st round.
