Scott, an offensive tackle from Tennessee, could provide versatile depth along the line, as he can play guard, as well. Butler, a cornerback out of Clemson figures to compete for a roster spot on a team that has plenty of youth and question marks at the position behind veteran standout Ike Taylor.
Pittsburgh released rookie free agent safety Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith from UTEP to make room for the new draft picks.
Thaddeus Gibson (6-2, 243), who was unable to participate in the Steelers' recent organized team activities (OTA) due to class requirements at Ohio State, was Pittsburgh's fourth-round pick (116th overall) in this year's NFL Draft. Gibson played defensive end for the Buckeyes and earned second-team all-Big Ten honors in 2009 with four sacks and 13 tackles for a loss.
Doug Worthington (6-5, 292) was the Steelers' seventh-round selection (242nd overall) in this year's Draft and also played on the defensive front for Ohio State. He had 42 tackles his senior season, including two sacks, and helped the Buckeyes rank seventh in the NCAA in holding opponents to 90 rushing yards per game.
I hate to do this often, but I have a 'feeling' that Worthington may pan out quite nicely for a 7th round pick. I say a 'feeling' because I haven't exactly studied hours and hours of tape of him during his solid career at Ohio State. He just looks like he's big, sturdy and durable guy who will be able to handle gap clogging duties very nicely.
With 10 total players drafted, this is really just a small drop in the bucket - but a decent start nonetheless.
