Report: Alabama A&M NT Kearse & Louisville CB Patrick To Have Pre Draft Visits With Steelers

Dale Lolley reported a little while ago that Alabama A&M nose tackle Frank Kearse and Louisville cornerback Johnny Patrick will make pre draft visits with the Steelers if they have not already. The Steelers have been more tight lipped this offseason about the players they bring to the South Side for official visits, but word continues to leak out.

Lolley also confirmed earlier reports that Boise State wide receiver Austin Pettis and Utah State cornerback Curtis Marsh are two of the 30 allowed visitors the Steelers will have prior to the draft.

Steelers scout Mark Gorscak was present for the Alabama A&M Pro Day in early March and the 6 foot 4, 315 pound defensive tackle certainly seems to be on the Steelers draft day radar. At his Pro day, Kearse logged a 5.2 40-yard dash, 30-inch vertical, 8-7 broad jump, and 22 225-pound bench press reps. with several. His other measurables included a 7 1/4 hand size, 34 1/4 arm length, and an 85 3/8 wingspan.

Patrick is regarded as a mid round corner prospect that measured in at 5 foot 10 and a half at the NFL Combine and weighed 191 pounds. He started every game as a senior last year and led the Cardinals with five interceptions. While at the combine he turned in a 40 time in the high 4.5 range, but lowered it below 4.5 at his Pro Day in early March. He had a charge of harassment with physical contact dismissed in mid March after he completed a diversion program that included counseling.

Ovi- you can't always get what you want- but if Tomlin/Colbert try sometimes, you might find- they get what they need.

Chadman needs to go down to the Chelsea drugstore to get his prescription filled. :wink:

Probably Chadman's next move as he's already been down to the demonstration to get his fair share of abuse..

Cool. I'll go with you. Wanna split a soda while we're standing in line? I'm partial to the cherry red flavor. You? I think Mr. Jimmy likes that one too, but he may be to ill to have any of it.

(and to think this is supposed to be a thread about a nose tackle from Alabama A&M and a cornerback from Louisville). :lol:

Sounds good- Chadman has often been described as a footloose kind of guy- should work well, so long as we don't encounter any women who art practised at the art of deception...

There are probably some 20-somethings on this board (who have never heard of blowing a 50-amp fuse) that are wondering what the hell we are talking about right now. :P

Most likely.... Chadman has a Stones greatest hits album, John Lennon's greatest hits, Springsteen & Hendrix in the Chadmobile. It's standard fare for the Chadman. Younglings don't get it- where's the Gaga they say!

Would there be ANYTHING cooler than playing the riff to Jumping Jack Flash in front of a crowd? Envy for Keith Richards right now..

In the event of a nuclear holocaust, the only lifeforms to survive will be cockroaches and Keith Richards.

Frank Kearse, NT, Alabama A&M

64" 315 lbs
5.30 40, 22 Bench, 30 vert

First off, has the nickname Big Spoon, which coincidentally you can use to eat a Big Snack. Needs to work on his hand usage and play diagnosis, but Coach Mitchell can teach that. Once he does, Big Spoon could be an outstanding replacement for Big Snack. My favorite thing about him is his length. Tall Dlinemen cut off passing lanes just by raising their arms. That will help our pass defense as much as new DBs will. Steelers worked him out, but Patriots and Ravens are supposedly interested as well.
