    Official Visits

    Where can I get a list of all of our official visits prior to the draft last year, and how many from that list were selected by the Steelers? That might give us an indication of what the front office and Coach Tomlin are thinking.

    Re: Official Visits

    That information starts to trickle out at the combine (individual interviews), through either the Post-Gazette or Tribune-Review. They will have visits up until a a few weeks prior to the draft.

    If yoo are a Steeler fan it shouldnt be too hard to figure out what the Steelers are thinking.

    They've made it known over and over and over that they are more than happy with their offensive line. They are not happy with their corners, they have concerns about Farrior's decline, as well as the over all age and depth of ther D-line, and if a big time tallent falls to them, whether they have an open position availalbe for them, they will draft him. (See Mendenhall and Timmons).
