    Steelers 2012 Undrafted Free Agent signings

    Immediately following the Mr. Irrelevant pick of the NFL draft every year (final draft pick), teams get on the phone and start calling college players who weren't drafted in any of the 7 rounds. Scott Brown from the Pittsburgh Tribune Review and Steelers.com tell us who those players are for the Steelers.

    The 12 undrafted rookies include:

    Punter - Drew Butler (Georgia),
    Cornerback - Terry Carter (La. Tech)
    Wide Receiver - Connor Dixon (Duquesne)
    Safety - Robert Golden (Arizona)
    Defensive end - Ikponmwosa Igbinosun (Southern Connecticut State)
    Center/guard - Ryan Lee (Furman)
    Linebacker - Brandon Lindsey (Pitt)
    Wide receiver - Marquis Maze (Alabama)
    Kicker - Grant Ressel (Missouri)
    Linebacker - Adrian Robinson (Temple)
    Offensive Tackle - Desmond Stapleton (Rutgers)
    Defensive End - Jake Stoller (Yale)

    Yes, finally a kicker!! Sean Suisham look out! LOL

    I wonder how many times Tomlin and John Mitchell had to practice that name before calling him this evening! Ikponmwosa Igbinosun

    #17 ranked Kicker Ressel ??

    Entering this season, K Grant Ressel had missed three field goals in 46 chances. Through five games, Ressel has missed six kicks in 2011

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAAHAH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    D@mn Bengals had a pretty good draft. We can't take them lightly. Last couple of years, they are making decent moves for some reason. They must have switched up on Mike Brown's medication.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Robinson and Golden are decent prospects.

    I had Golden on an earlier mock. Kid is a project, but with time who knows. He has the size.

    Also, Maze may be a name to watch. If it is the correct person I am thinking, I read an article stating there was not much drop off from him and Hightower, Maze just couldn't get playing time. It might be someone else, I am not sure.
    Glad we got a kicker, but looks like he struggles a bit as well.
