2021 NFL Draft

Steelers Sign Oklahoma State LB Calvin Bundage

Published

on

The Steelers signed Oklahoma State linebacker Calvin Bundage as an undrafted free agent, the team announced on Saturday night.

Bundage’s career almost ended following a back injury at Oklahoma State, but after surgery and missing the entire 2019 season, he came back in a big way. He played in all 11 games in 2020, led the Cowboys in sacks with seven and added 8.5 tackles for loss. He was an All-Big 12 honorable mention in 2018 and 2020. Bundage finished his career in Stillwater with 148 tackles, including 23 for loss, and 11.5 sacks.

At 6-foot-2, 221 pounds, size is a concern for Bundage, and that concern will only increase with him moving to the next level. However, he posses good quickness of the edge to get to the quarterback.

Bundage played Mike linebacker in Oklahoma’s 4-2 defense that is similar to the Steelers’ scheme. Pittsburgh usually uses players that play inside linebacker in their 3-4 base defense for that role.
