Other than Mike Weber, a pretty underwhelming group.
If I had to make a strong wager on any player in this upcoming draft becoming a Steeler, my money would be on Boykin.

Another important thing to note: Tombert Pro Days.

Notre Dame (reported by The Athletic)
West Virginia (Aditi Kinkhabwala)
LSU (pic on LSU twitter feed)
Alabama (NFL Network)


Should be noted that Fichtner and Butler both attended the Georgia Pro Day, which was on the same day as Notre Dame.

LB Ben Burr-Kirven from Washington


This kid doesn't have eye popping combine numbers but his film shows him to be a tackling machine that is usually around the ball. His HIG factor is very high as they might say. I only saw a handful of UW games last season or two but he always showed up. Worst case scenario with him is bye bye Dirty Red.

Also Ben Burr-Kirven seems to be around a lot of turnovers whether causing them or getting them.

His workout numbers were pretty good, and he's definitely a turnover guy. He was also out-lengthed and overpowered at times.

almost all these guys are all about Day 3 and UDFA

Boykin is a great STs guy.

I really don't know what to make of Boykin. The workout #s are ridiculous, but I don't see anything near that on tape. Takes forever to get started and looks slower and less explosive than Juju.

And you'd think a guy with his size and speed would be a huge threat downfield. All I see are games where he's blanketed. He's over-aged and never did anything before his senior year. He's also pretty pedestrian with the ball in his hands, offers little in the way of YAC.

He has skills to like, and again, the workout #s are what they are, but I don't know if I'd be comfortable using on of our top three picks on him. Late third at best, maybe even an early day three guy for me.

You’re missing Texas (Colbert)

That is a lot of CBs for official visits. 5 off the top of my head.

He is a real sleeper that has size that could be a development guy along with Brian Allen.

Love, love, love that they brought in Oliver for a visit. It really is true, if you look at his highlights he really does look and play like a young Vance McDonald.

Ran a 4.63, has nimble feet and good/great hands and is an unrefined blocker but he wants to be physical and nasty as a blocker. The desire is there to be a great blocker he just needs a world class TE coach like Daniel to coach him up in that department.

I think he will be gone before our 4th round pick. I would not be upset if he is our second 3rd round pick. Maybe they can use one of our 6th round picks to trade up earlier in round 4 to get him?? Many may argue that he will last longer but this guy has high, high upside to be a complete TE. Fantastic pass catcher who can be a great blocker, a true combo TE. Prospects like that do not fall and usually go higher than expected.

He had some issues locating the football/anticipating throws in the games I saw. I can see the Macdonald comparison but I don't think he's as good as Vance.
