The Steelers have signed first-round draft pick Cameron Heyward.

Heyward, a defensive end from Ohio State, agreed to a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth year. Steelers will announce the signing at a 5:30 p.m news conference.

The Steelers have signed all of their draft picks except for Texas cornerback Curtis Brown, a third-round selection.

The 6-5, 288-pound Heyward was taken by the Steelers No. 31 overall last April.
