Default Rookies complete their first camp

Rookies complete their first camp

The Steelers rookies completed their first workouts with the team over the weekend. I'd love to report more, but the team has restricted what the media is permitted to report from the workouts and, I took a well-needed week of vacation last week and skipped the workouts.

What gives?

How can I take a week off when the team is working?

Honestly, we won't know a thing about these rookies until we see them interacting with the veterans and where the team lines them up when everyone is present.

We all know that David DeCastro, Mike Adams and Alameda Ta'amu are big. We know that Sean Spence is short.

Outside of that, there isn't a lot to be gained from these kind of workouts - media wise.

OK, there are a couple of things. David DeCastro lined up initially at right guard. Mike Adams at left tackle. They will likely both swap sides at some point before it's all said and done.

The players are having the playbook thrown at them for the first time. Outside of that, until mini-camp later this month, we really won't know much.

@ One thing we do know is that the new rookie salary cap rules are having the desired effect. The Steelers have begun signing their draft picks and given the new rules, there's a good chance everyone could be signed by the time mini-camp opens up May 22.
