Some tweets coming out of Ed Bouchette and Mark Kaboly about the rookies on their first day of the weekend long mini camp. Only rookies and players previously not a team roster are present. It's a good time for all young guys to get their feet wet with players around their own skill level.
@EdBouchette: Some people call #steelers rookie G DeCastro the next Faneca. DeCastro wearing No. 66 today at rookie camp
@MarkKaboly_Trib: #steelers have moved Wes Lyons to tight end. At 6-9 260, he is a beast.
-OL Desmond Stapleton failed his physical. Steelers add Corey Balcerzak (6-3,300 from St. John Fisher) as a tryout
-#Steelers tryouts at minicamp are: QB Darron Thomas (Oregon), DS Chris Banjo (SMU) and LS Alex Russian (LSU) to go along with Balcerzak
- Rookie minicamp includes all players who never been on a roster before. Practice squad is not roster so Turner, McCoy, Corbin Bryant here
- Make that 40 at rookie minicamp. Roster omitted one person
