Can someone please explain how this works.

I originally thought that the process was basically the FO, who was interested in a player, take them out to dinner. But after reading about Tomlin's take on dining with numerous Alabama players, he has me rethinking how the process works. Are other teams also there? Is it like a banquet deal, where there are several tables and all dine at same time?

According to Jeremy Fowler of espn.com, Tomlin said Monday at the league owners meetings in Orlando, FL that he remembers dining with about eight former Alabama players ahead of that pro day earlier this month. While we donít know the full list of those players, itís probably a good bet that Tomlinís dining partners that evening included linebacker Rashaan Evans, wide receiver Calvin Ridley, defensive backs Minkah Fitzpatrick and Ronnie Harrison, and defensive lineman and DaíRon Payne in addition to Frazier. Did the bama players snub the other teams, by just dining with the steelers?
