2013 NFL Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers add 15 undrafted free agents

With the 2013 NFL Draft in the books, the Pittsburgh Steelers are still busy adding players to the roster that will head to Latrobe in July.

After the draft, the Steelers came to terms with 15 undrafted free agents.

Those 15 players include: Notre Dame offensive tackle Mike Golic, Jr., San Diego State guard Nik Embernate, USC running back Curtis McNeal, Northwestern defensive end Brian Arnfelt, Utah wide receiver Reggie Dunn, Penn State offensive tackle Mike Farrell, West Virginia wide receiver J.D. Woods, Northern Illinois linebacker Alan Baxter, Louisiana-Lafayette defensive end Cordian Hagans, Florida defensive tackle Omar Hunter, UAB guard Chris Hubbard, Hawaii long snapper Luke Ingram , West Virginia center Joe Madsen, Baylor center Ivory Wade, and Michigan State defensive tackle Anthony Rashad White.

If the name Golic sounds familiar, he is the son of ESPN analyst Mike Golic.

Many of these guys will have very little chance to make the team, but it’s not impossible.

Former Steelers linebacker James Harrison went undrafted, as did countless number of Pro-Bowlers over the past number of years.

Sometimes going undrafted is better than going late in the draft as an undrafted free agents gets the opportunity to pick what situation he wants to go to where there may be an opportunity to compete for a roster spot.

Some of these guys just need an opportunity and they let their play do the talking for them.  They’ve now got that chance with the Steelers.
