No One

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there is no UDFA until the labor issue gets settled.

Lockout = No UDFA's

In fact, I don't even think they can talk to them and convey a possible interest until this thing gets settled.

I wish it would end already but it doesn't seem to be about to end anytime soon. I think that will change the dynamics of signing the free agents a lot. A lot of great players were not drafted. Our own James Harrison is a prime example. So, this is a key part of the draft and it will be interesting to see how this plays out. It seems that the season will be disrupted if an agreement is not made within a few weeks.

they're still gonna need camp bodies.

dont see how there wont be UDFA signings once the lockout ends

Whoever the UFL hasn't snatched up already. I'm sure those teams are on the phone with the top undrafted prospects as we speak, offering up contracts that the NFL is unable to negotiate due to labor unrest.

Ian Williams - NT, Notre Dame

He tore his MCL, but recovered to work out at the combine and also at Notre Dames Pro Day...

He was projected as a 3rd to 5th round pick in every draft publication that I read...he looks like he could be a good 2 down NT and would be well worth a UDFA contract...at best, he could be a lot like Hoke: a quality back-up who can start in a pinch...

I feel sorry for these guys who were not drafted. Alot of them are barely, if at all getting by. And usually when the draft is over, the teams who want them usually sign them right away. Meanning they have a nice chunk of cash to get a nice apartment in the city of the team that signs them, and have full use of the teams facility to work out and talk with coaches. That's very Important to ANY rookie, even drafted ones as well. But unlike the drafted rookies, who can probably get a standard loan from any bank based on the fact that they were drafted players, and will have future guaranteed money as colateral,,,undrafted rookies probably can't get such a loan :x So I expect alot of these kids to either sign with their local teams from the city they come from, or as close as they come from. And the rest will have to get jobs, thereby not having the prep time to stay in good shape, or start learning a teams playbook.

But with that said, I would say I would like it if undrafted T David Mims is brought in.
Maybe even Ex-Gilbert and Pouncey teammate Carl Johnson. WR's, well yeah, we didn't draft any. But I was obviously high on Terrance Toliver and Darvin Adams. Ricardo Lockette would be nice. We drafted Batch, but Derrick Locke might be nice to sign. And Kendric Burney of UNC would be good. And I think we can ALL agree that Marshall LB Mario Harvey will be a LOCK..once the lockout is over :lol: Those guys would be A-OK with me.

we all want the best UDFAs out there that are still available, but there will be bidding wars for them and that's not the Steelers' style...

I expect some of the UDFAs that we brought in for visits to sign with us once the lockout ends, the likes of:

Jarriel King, OT, South Carolina, 6'5 324 lbs, 7-FA, 4/1
Mario Harvey, LB, Marshall 5'11 250 lbs 5 4/13
Weslye Saunders,TE, South Carolina, 6-7 4/20
Davon Morgan, S, Virginia Tech, FA 4/20
Tyler Beiler, WR, Bridgewater, FA
Dwight Daisher, QB/WR, Middle Tennessee, FA
Anthony Gray, NT, Southern Miss 5'11 330 lbs 7-FA
Henry Hynoski, FB, Pittsburgh, 6'0 257 lbs 5-6
