With the NFL Combine wrapped up, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the rest of the NFL turn their attention to the pro day circuit. Indiana kicked things off on Tuesday with the first pro day, and the Steelers had representation at the event.

Alex Kozora of Steelers Depot pointed out that Steelers scouting coordinator Casey Weidl was at the Indiana pro day. In the photo provided by Indiana Football’s official X account, Weidl was watching prospects perform on the bench press.

According to Indiana reporter Daniel Flick, the Steelers were one of several teams that had scouts at the pro day.

Casey is the younger brother of Steelers assistant general manager Andy Weidl. Both brothers worked for the Philadelphia Eagles prior to joining the Steelers in 2022. With Philadelphia, Casey Weidl spent three seasons as director of scouting operations from 2019-21, one year as pro personnel coordinator and two years as college scouting coordinator. Before his time with the Eagles, Weidl was with the Buffalo Bills from 2012-15, serving as video intern, video assistant and manager of football operations.

Linebacker Aaron Casey and defensive end Andre Carter were the top draws at the Hoosiers’ pro day. Casey became the 12th linebacker in Indiana history to earn first-team All-Big Ten honors and finished No. 4 on the single season tackles for loss list (20.0) in 2023 to tie Nathan Davis (1995). In addition, Casey led the Big Ten and ranked No. 3 nationally in tackles for loss (20.0) in 2023.

Carter transferred to Indiana in 2023 after being a four-year starter at Western Michigan. He earned second-team All-Mid-American Conference at Western Michigan in 2022. In his lone year with the Hoosiers, Carter started all 12 games, recording 27 tackles, 11 tackles for loss and two sacks. He was named All-Big Ten honorable mention.

Casey, who was the lone Hoosier invited to the NFL Combine, measured at 6-foot-1 and 231 pounds. He ran a 4.75 in the 40-yard dash (14th among linebackers) and a 1.59 split (tied-5th among linebackers). He also had 16 reps at 225 pounds on the bench press (tied-6th among linebackers) and posted a 30-inch vertical jump (17th among linebackers).
