Not an 'official visit' but I thought I'd post this in here anyway.

Quote:
The Pittsburgh Steelers were among a large group of NFL teams who attended a somewhat unusual workout on Tuesday. Virginia Commonwealth basketball player Mo Alie-Cox has decided to try his hand at the NFL, so he wants to show off his skills as a tight end.
http://steelerswire.usatoday.com/2017/0 ... -alie-cox/


Also there's this from NFL network about the youngster.

Quote:
An NFL spokesman confirmed that Alie-Cox was "eligible for the 2016 NFL Draft and has remained a free agent since the conclusion of that draft." Therefore, he won't be in the 2017 draft -- and can sign immediately. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300000 ... free-agent


Quote:
Alie-Cox was encouraged to explore the possibility two years ago by Cowboys TE Jason Witten.
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300000 ... all-to-nfl


NFL teams thus far @ Mo Alie-Cox's workout: Bears, Lions, Dolphins, Vikings, 49ers, Browns, Patriots, Redskins, Chiefs and Steelers https://twitter.com/LaneCtvsports/statu ... lie-cox%2F

6-45, 262, 86 2/8 wing, 11 1/8 hand, 35 7/8 arm, 4.75 40, 35.5 vert, 10 2 broad, 4.45 shuttle, 7.25 3 cone https://twitter.com/MikeGarafolo/status ... lie-cox%2F

He picked a bad year to come out-- there are so many talented, lesser known, more athletic, more experienced TE types. His wingspan sounds like something he can win with, though.

Apparently he's a converted WR. I have honestly never heard of the guy.

MVP of the Tropical Bowl All-Star game... 3 TDs, including a deflection on a Hail Mary. Lacks the quicks to be a real force as a move TE but he's not too bad as a UDFA project.

Added 2 to the "Unconfirmed" list.

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.
