Kaleb Ramsey

High School: Laurel Highlands

College: Boston College

Position: Defensive lineman

Draft projection: Seventh round/Priority free agent

Skinny: Ramsey (6-3, 285) has the physical tools to play in the NFL. He bench pressed 225 pounds 36 times at the NFL combine, the most of any defensive lineman. Medical issues derailed his college career, which spanned six seasons. Received a medical hardship waiver after injuries ended his 2011 and 2012 seasons. Will turn 25 in June.

Dorian Bell

High School: Gateway

College: Duquesne

Position: Linebacker

Draft projection: Free agent

Skinny: Bell played his first two college seasons at Ohio State before playing his final three seasons at Duquesne. He had 47 tackles and two sacks for the Dukes in 2013.

Jordan Hall

High School: Jeannette

College: Ohio State

Position: Running back

Draft projection: Free agent

Skinny: Hall, who had 536 yards rushing and eight touchdowns in 2013, served as the backup to Carlos Hyde, who will be one of the first running backs taken in the draft. Received a medical redshirt after foot and knee injuries ended his 2012 season.

Greg Blair

High School: Schenley

College: Cincinnati

Position: Linebacker

Draft projection: Free agent

Skinny: The brother of former Pitt basketball star DeJuan Blair, Greg led the Bearcats in tackles the past two seasons, including 106 as a senior. A slow 40-yard dash time is likely the reason Blair will not be drafted.

Dayonne Nunley

High School: Gateway

College: Miami of Ohio

Position: Cornerback

Draft projection: Free agent

Skinny: Nunley was first-team all-Mid-American Conference three times and finished his career with 13 interceptions. The Steelers were one of two teams to attend his pro day, which he had to cut short due to a hamstring injury.

Chris Elkins

High School: Beaver Falls

College: Youngstown State

Position: Offensive line

Draft projection: Free agent

Skinny: Three-year starter and two-time all-Missouri Valley Conference, Elkins played guard as a sophomore and junior before moving to center for his senior season. Elkins ran well at his pro day, is athletic and could be a fit for an NFL team that uses the zone blocking scheme.

Darien Robinson

High School: McKeesport

College: The Citadel

Position: Fullback

Draft projection: Free agent

Skinny: Robinson finished his career with 2,935 rushing yards for the Division I-AA Bulldogs, including 966 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior. Has played in an option offense since high school, so he will have to prove he can play in an NFL offense.

Skinny: Kordenbrock threw for more than 6,000 yards and tossed 32 touchdown passes in his four seasons with the Division I-AA Keydets. He threw for 1,619 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior.
