Draft Scout News
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Steelers' picks: Round 2/46 - Stephon Tuitt, DE, 6-5 1/2, 312, Notre Dame...He fills a major hole at end after the departures of Ziggy Hood, Al Woods and the loss of Brett Keisel. He should become the rare exception as a regular starter as a rookie in Dick LeBeau's defensive line, the first since Casey Hampton in 2001. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 37/4. *Stephon Tuitt, DT, Notre Dame, 6-6, 304, 4.92, 1-2...Intriguing bull of a prospect with plenty of natural ability that is enhanced by the attitude of an under-equipped overachiever. That may be the result of strict upbringing by mother, Tamar Bartlett, a deputy sheriff who demanded discipline. After starting slowly last year following sports hernia surgery, Tuitt had six of his career total 20 sacks. An interception last year and previous 77-yard fumble return TD reflect background as prep tight end. A hairline fracture in his foot prevented him from working out at the combine, although he did show his ample strength by hoisting 225 pounds 31 times on the bench. Frankly: Quick, tough, massive man who will give his best, which should be worth at least a high second round pick and a shot at being one of the most reliable interior defensive linemen in the NFL. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
04/03/14 - 2014 Pro Days: Notre Dame's Nix, Martin take care of business...Projected top-100 draft pick DL Stephon Tuitt was also on campus for the workouts, but didn't participate as he rehabs from left foot surgery – a surprise injury the medical staffs found at the NFL Combine. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 40. *Stephon Tuitt, DT, Notre Dame, 6-6, 312, 4.92, 1-2...Intriguing prospect who has plenty of natural ability but has the attitude of an under-equipped overachiever, possibly the result of strict upbringing by mother, Tamar Bartlett, a deputy sheriff who demanded discipline. Last year he had six of his career 20 sacks after starting slowly. An interception last year and previous 77-yard fumble return TD reflect background as prep tight end. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
01/06/14 - Notre Dame DL Stephon Tuitt declares for draft...One of the key figures in the rise of Notre Dame 's defense under Brian Kelly has confirmed he will enter the 2014 NFL Draft. Defensive end Stephon Tuitt told Sports Illustrated Sunday that he will forgo his final season of eligibility in South Bend, joining fellow Irish defensive lineman Louis Nix, who signed with an agent in December. The two juniors were the foundation of an Irish defensive line that led the team to the 2013 BCS Championship Game and a No. 30 ranking in yards allowed per-play in the 2013 season. "I'm ready to take my game to another level," Tuitt told SI. "All I did was work out pros and cons, and that helped me realize I have more pros than cons and I'm ready to go. I'm comfortable and confident and I'm ready to take this step for me."
A four-star, top-50 recruit in the Class of 2011 from Monroe, Ga., the 6-foot-6, 312-pound Tuitt lived up to the hype and then some, garnering All-American honors after a sophomore season that saw him record 11 sacks and 11 tackles-for-loss, both team highs. Though slowed at times by injury in 2013, Tuitt still led the team in both categories again, posting 7.5 sacks and 9 tackles-for-loss. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
