It does not count as a visit-- they are going to Texas to watch him, so he can actually work out. If he comes to PGH, it counts aginst the limit AND he can't work out.

I would not invest a pick at QB in this draft class...

UCLA edge rusher Takkarist McKinley is visiting the Browns, Steelers, Ravens and Bengals this week.
This is an interesting little AFC North tour for Mr. McKinley. The Steelers and Ravens may not have access to him, barring a trade up the board. A top-10 possibility, McKinley could make sense for the Bengals at No. 9 or the Browns at No. 12. Of course, Cleveland is almost assuredly going to have taken Myles Garrett at No. 1 by then.

McKinley being taken before the Steelers pick is a plus scenario.

I think the Steelers are going to draft a QB this year. If Mahommes is there in round 1 he is the guy. If not, then Dobbs is the fallback option with one of our 3rd round picks or our 4th round pick if he falls that far.

I like their thinking on both. Mahommes and Dobbs will both need time to develop but if it were me, those would be two of the QBs that I take a chance on.

I agree - I think they are taking Mahomes at 30. He is their kind of QB, and they like the idea of him sitting the remainder of Ben's deal.

If they do this, I wish they would also trade up and nab an OLB or CB too.

I'd run to the podium if Mahomes is there at 1.30.

I'd trade picks from next year to move up after that and get an edge and a CB. Why be so conservative?
