Shortly after the NFL Draft concluded last month, seven Pitt players signed deals with NFL teams. It was the first time in 12 years that no Pitt players were selected, but now there could be even more players getting a shot at the pros.â†µ
A few others could get tryouts with teams and one such guy appears to be backup running back Zach Brown. ESPN's Andrea Adelson says Brown will try out for the Buffalo Bills. There's also a Pitt connection in Buffalo, as former coach Dave Wannstedt is the team's defensive coordinator.
Brown transferred to Pitt from Wisconsin and ended up playing a vital role last season. In the wake of Ray Graham's injury, Brown stepped in to start and play significant minutes for the team, sharing time with freshman Isaac Bennett. Over a two-game stretch against UConn and Cincinnati, he had over 200 total yards of offense.â†µ
