Steelers signed San Diego State G Nik Embernate.

Embernate (6-foot-3 3/4, 305) was nicknamed "Embernasty" in college for his physical play, often to the point of inducing penalties. He started 46 games for the Aztecs, all at guard. Embernate showed some athleticism at his Pro Day with a 5.15 forty and 26 1/2-inch vertical. He did 21 reps on the bench. Once Embernate develops, he could grow into a Richie Incognito-type player. The Steelers don't have much depth along the offensive line.
