The Steelers signed two more draft picks to three-year contracts today -- tackle Chris Scott of Tennessee and cornerback Crezdon Butler of Clemson.

That means the only draft choices who have not signed a contract are the top two picks -- center/guard Maurkice Pouncey and outside linebacker Jason Worilds.

Scott (6-4, 319) was the first of the Steelers three fifth-round picks in the April draft who started the final 39 games of his college career at left tackle.

Butler (6-0, 191) was the second of their fifth-round selections who started 40 games and had 11 interceptions in his career at Clemson.

They will receive the rookie minimum salaries of $320,000 in 2010, $405,000 in 2011 and $490,000 in 2012.

To make room on the roster, the Steelers released rookie free agent Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith.
