2013 Undrafted Free Agents: Jarred Holley and Andrew Taglianetti get shot with Pittsburgh Steelers

Justin K. Aller

Meant to get to this earlier (seem to be saying that a lot lately), but two more of Pitt's players are getting a look at an NFL rookie camp. Safeties Jarred Holley and Andrew Taglianetti both are getting a tryout during the camp.

Holley is actually listed as a cornerback on this page and I've seen that elsewhere, so don't know that means that's where the Steelers see him or if it's just a typo. The rookie camp was this weekend and ends today, and Holley was obviously grateful for the opportunity.

I mentioned this before, but I feel pretty strongly that Holley could play in the NFL as a safety. Taglianetti could as well since he's got the whole blocking kicks thing going on (could be a solid special teams player), but I'm a bit higher on Holley. File this in the FWIW category, but Holley picked off a Landry Jones pass during the camp so far.

We'll have to see where it ends up, though. Most of these guys in the rookie camps that weren't drafted are long shots to make the team. Pittsburgh also drafted safety Shamarko Thomas (who looked good, according to the Trib's Mark Kaboly) and invited a few other safeties/corners to their rookie camp, so they'll have to compete amongst them just to have a shot to get a shot at a rookie free agent contract.

But even if neither catches on the with the Steelers, their agents will of course continue to pursue other options.
