    Citadel cornerback Cortez Allen to visit Steelers in the first week of April

    Tue, Mar 22nd, 2011 by DePaoli


    The Pittsburgh Steelers intend to bring in at least 5-to-6 cornerbacks for official draft visits over the next month.

    The team to this point has officially scheduled two visits for cornerbacks.

    As previously reported on Monday, Texas cornerback Curtis Brown, a projected second round pick, will be in town for a two-day visit on March 30-31.

    Citadel's Cortez Allen, a projected mid-round pick, is scheduled for a draft visit for the first week of April, Inside Pittsburgh Sports has learned.

    Allen like Curtis Brown, has excellent size at 6-foot-1, 197-pounds. In the Steelers scheme, they eye corners with good size and the ability to be run stoppers.

    Allen is coming off a strong combine, running a 4.50 forty-yard dash. His draft stock is said to be on the rise and many scouts have him projected as a 4th-5th round pick.

    The Steelers have two cornerbacks under contract for next season, in Bryant McFadden and Crezdon Butler.

    Ike Taylor and William Gay are free agents.

    Sources: Steelers To Bring In UTC Cornerback Buster Skrine For Pre Draft Visit

    University of Tennessee-Chattanooga cornerback Buster Skrine is expected to make a pre-draft visit to Pittsburgh to visit with the Steelers prior to the NFL draft according to The National Football Post. Skrine conducted a private workout for the Ravens today, just one day after his Wednesday Pro Day work-out. In addition to the Steelers, Skrine also has visits scheduled with the Patriots, Browns and the Bengals. Skrine is a bit undersized at 5 foot 9 and a half, but had an excellent showing at the 2011 NFL Combine. Skrine is currently projected as a mid-round draft pick.

    You can watch a highlight video of him below:

    Phil Taylor to visit Jets, Steelers, Browns, five others

    Baylor nose guard in high demand

    by Aaron Wilson
    MARCH 26, 2011


    Massive Baylor nose guard Phil Taylor has eight upcoming official visits, including the New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

    Taylor conducted three private workouts this week with the Browns, Chiefs and an undisclosed AFC playoff team.

    Taylor is regarded as a rising prospect on draft boards, especially after the Senior Bowl where he shoved around blockers.

    Taylor is a big, strong anchor at 6-foot-3, 334 pounds.

    At the scouting combine, he ran the 40-yard dash in 5.09 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 31 times.

    Taylor recorded 62 tackles, seven for losses and two sacks last season and was named second-team All-Big 12.

    Taylor transferrred from Penn State after being suspended after a fight at the student union during a fraternity function.

    A felony aggravated assault charge was eventually dropped, and Taylor didn't get into any trouble at Baylor and was named to the Big 12 Commissioner's honor roll.

    During his first season in Waco, Taylor recorded 25 tackles 2 1/2 for losses, a half-sack, one interception and two blocked kicks.

    Florida T Marcus Gilbert & FSU G Rodney Hudson Reportedly Will Visit Steelers

    Two offensive lineman who played their college ball in the state of Florida will reportedly make pre-draft visits to Pittsburgh as Florida tackle Marcus Gilbert and Florida State guard Rodney Hudson reportedly have visits scheduled to the South Side. Gilbert played both tackle positions for the University of Florida this past season and made 30 career starts for the Gators, including all 13 games in 2010. Hudson was a four-year starter for the Seminoles at guard and projects as a guard/center type at the next level. Gilbert is projected as a 3rd or 4th round pick while Hudson is projected to be drafted sometime in the 2nd round.

    Gilbert will go higher than expected, in Chadman's opinion, due to size, level of competition & that he has played both LT & RT.


    Chadman's latest mock is looking solid- Aaron Williams, Marcus Gilbert...
