Found May 31, 2012 on Bleed Black & Gold:
Ed Bouchette is reporting that the Steelers draft picks David DeCastro, Mike Adams and Alameda Ta’amu may be able to participate in Steelers minicamp.  All 3 of these guys are still in school and were not allowed to participate until the semester was over.  That now may not be the case. According to Ed the players can attend when their course work is over not when the semester is over.  That means that Adams may be at the next set of OTAs and be at minicamp.  DeCastro and Ta’amu will not be at OTAs but they very well could be at minicamp. This may not sound like much but it could be really important for this team.  Especially for DeCastro and Adams.  These two guys are expected to start on this team.  If they are able to get to at least minicamp that is an advantage for the Steelers.  Waiting to get them on the field in Training Camp would put the team behind.  Getting these guys feet wet now will only help later. Lets hope their work is complete and they can make it to camp.
