Apparently Davis Webb (QB from Cal) has a visit scheduled.

Treyvon Hester is a Nose Tackle out of Toledo. He's from Penn Hills, so it will be a local visit.


Apparently Treyvon Hester had a very impressive workout last week in Toledo. 13 teams represented. He had labrum surgery in December so didn't participate at the combine.
4.8 40 yd, 31.5 vert, good shuttle time as well. He's getting some hype late in the process.

They love big men who can move

B2B's boy Pita in town. I'm sure he's going to be pumped. Don't know much about Kallon or Gamble.

I thought you meant Pita is going to be pumped-- but you meant me! Yes, I'm more relieved that at least they are considering him.

Kallon is expected to convert to OT, so he's come to the right place-- we are fast becoming OT conversion Inc. Gamble broke his hip at some point-- I wonder if he, too, is on the OT conversion train-- extremely long w big wingspan... but that works for 5 tech, too.

Just thinking aloud:

With the addition of AluAlu, and the draft interest in DL of various shapes and sizes, and soon to be bare cupboard at OLB, could they be considering the move to a 4 man front?

Maybe a Chris Wormley early and a Keionta Davis/Pat Gamble/bigger edge later, rather than chasing 3-4 OLB unicorns like Porter/Harrison? May fit the depth guys like Walton and Maxey as well.

We're not missing Wormley-- we're missing the 4-3 Edge guys with speed and length and 3 techs . Difference between Wormley and Tuiit/Heyward is marginal. They're all strongside DE or 1 tech in a 4-3.

Let's play...

LDE: Tuitt
3 tech: Heyward
1 tech: Hargrave
RDE: Chickillo
LEO: Dupree
MLB: Williams
Will: Shazier

Ideally, I think you need more at RDE, Shaz is wasted at Will, and Heyward isn't the most dynamic 3 tech. Would rather have Hargrave as the 3 tech but then, no place for Heyward. So..... drafting Barnett, Lawson or Jerrad Davis/Raekwon would seem to indicate move to 4-3 base. Not sure there are too many dynamic interior 4-3 DL in this draft.

All of the d-linemen they're looking at seem to be late round development projects. I wouldn't read too much into it.

At this point, we might as well run with some unsubstantiated rumors.

Brad Kaaya was allegedly in Pittsburgh around the days of Dan Rooney's funeral: http://www.steelersdepot.com/2017/04/miami-qb-brad-kaaya-likely-headed-pittsburgh-pre-draft-visit/

Some fan sites have claimed Raekwon McMillan also came in: http://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2017-nfl-mock-drafts-profiles-video-clips-highlights-steelers-analysis-breakdowns-news/2017/3/22/15002324/steelers-begin-process-of-scheduling-private-nfl-draft-prospect-visits-raekwon-mcmillan-chris-godwin
