Steelers UDFA center Patrick Morris has a better 3 cone time than Bud Dupree and nearly the same short shuttle as James Washington. Pittsburgh might have found a gem. (#58, reaches Harrison Phillips in clip). https://t.co/nShHBqo9fg pic.twitter.com/GrWDfYwZHR

Camp outlook: Morris is in a tough spot behind veterans Maurkice Pouncey and B.J. Finney, but he should get all the reps he can handle with Finney also playing guard and Pouncey not expected to play much in the preseason.
Projected role: The Steelers kept four interior linemen last year, and they’re all returning. If everyone is healthy, Morris probably returns to the practice squad.
