PITTSBURGH -- The Steelers signed two draft picks on Tuesday, leaving five unsigned with two months before the start of training camp.

Offensive lineman Wesley Johnson, a fifth-round pick, and linebacker Jordan Zumwalt, a sixth-round selection, each signed a four-year contract.

Johnson, the second of two fifth-round picks that the Steelers made earlier this month, took part in the Steelers’ first full-squad offseason practice earlier on Tuesday. Zumwalt can’t participate in organized team activities (OTAs) until UCLA completes its school year, and he will miss the majority of the voluntary practices.

The Steelers signed defensive tackle Daniel McCullers, a sixth-round pick, and tight end Rob Blanchflower, a seventh-round selection, to four-year contracts last week.

McCullers’ deal is for approximately $2.3 million, according to ESPN Stats & Information, and includes a $78,680 signing bonus. Blanchflower’s contract is for approximately $2.28 million and it includes a $59,400 signing bonus.

The signing bonus is the only guaranteed money in the contracts signed by McCullers and Blanchflower, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
