After the first day of NFL Combine workouts, the Pittsburgh Steelers should be looking over their notes to see which prospects they could look to add this April. As the defensive linemen and linebackers took the field, some put up disappointing performances while others had our jaws on the floor.

There were certainly some standouts early in the NFL Combine who could be on Pittsburgh's radar during the NFL Draft. Here are six early Combine studs the Steelers should be enthralled by so far.

6. Bryan Bresee offers intrigue

You don't find players like Bryan Bresee every day. The Clemson defensive tackle measured in at 6'5 1/2'' and nearly 300 pounds, but showcased phenomenal movement skills. Bresee blazed with a 4.86 40-yard dash but elected not to do every athletic test.

Bresee is a guy who looked great in shorts, but his flashes of elite athleticism come and go on tape. Once talked about as a possible top-five pick, the Pittsburgh Steelers need to be prepared if a player as physically gifted falls to day two of the NFL Draft. Omar Khan owns two second-round picks this year, and Bresee could be on the map.

We know that Pittsburgh values big, athletic interior defenders and they currently have a huge need for the position. Bresee fits the bill and the gamble could be right on day two after a strong Combine performance.
