    Clayton making the rounds

    MARCH 29, 2011
    by Aaron Wilson


    Auburn defensive tackle Zach Clayton has been scheduled for a visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

    The visit is set for April 7.

    He has previously visited the Indianapolis Colts and is scheduled to visit the San Diego Chargers in early April.

    Clayton boosted his stock with a strong Pro Day campus workout.

    The 6-foot-2, 299-pounder ran between 4.79 and 4.85 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

    He also registered a 10-08 broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds 27 times with a 33 1/2 inch vertical leap.

    Clayton was congratulated by Denver Broncos coach John Fox during his workout.

    Ed: 3 OTs Visit Today, None a 1st-Rounder Friday, 01 April 2011 11:36 Written by Ed Bouchette

    Three offensive tackles are visiting the Steelers today, which signals the real start of their 30 prospect visits.

    The three tackles are Marcus Gilbert of Florida, James Carpenter of Alabama and Jarriel King of South Carolina. I’ve seen no one list any of them as first-rounders. As I blogged earlier, I believe the Steelers can get their tackle on the second round – maybe even the third – after going for their cornerback on the first round.

    Gilbert goes 6-6, 330 and has all the physical attributes but I’ve seen the word “lazy” pegged next to his name. Carpenter is 6-4 ˝, 320 with quick feet, a finesse blocker who can play left tackle. King is 6-5, 320 and is what scouts like to call a “down the line guy.’’ Don’t look for him to go in the top 3 or 4 rounds.

    The first of the 30 visitors came a few weeks ago when Hampton defensive lineman Kenrick Ellis paid them a visit. He is a nose tackle – 6-5, 346.

    Seven Pitt players also visited but they do not count toward the 30 they are allowed.
    LETS GO MOUNTAINEERS!
    Here We Go Steelers!

    Austin Pettis to visit the Steelers next week



    Boise State wide receiver Austin Pettis is scheduled to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers next week, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

    Pettis has drawn fourth-round and fifth-round grades from draft analysts.

    Pettis ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds at the NFL scouting combine, but was extremely productive in college and has ideal size at 6-foot-3, 209 pounds.

    The two-time first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selection is sure-handed, catching 71 passes last season for 951 yards and touchdoowns.

    As a junior, he caught 65 passes for 855 yards and 14 touchdowns.

    He ranks as Boise State's career leader with 229 receptions and 39 touchdowns, finishing second with 2,838 receiving yards.

    The Broncos ranked second in scoring offense last season, averaging 46.67 points per contest last season.

    In their Las Vegas Bowl win over Utah, Pettis caught 12 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown.

    A private workout is different from an official visit.

    For a private workout, the team goes to the player and works him out on the player's turf.

    For an official visit, the team brings the player to team headquarters to show him around the facility, get to know him a bit better as a person, and perhaps to do another medical check with team doctors. There are no actual workouts permitted during official visits to team HQ.

    Marshall pro day-

    When Mario Harvey found out he was not among the invitees to last month’s NFL Scouting Combine, Marshall’s pro day emerged as this fiery linebacker’s key chance to show NFL teams what Marshall fans have raved about for ages.

    Of the 12 Marshall players and one small-schooler who worked out for NFL personnel on March 16, it was Harvey who made the most of his opportunity.

    The 5-foot-10 7/8, 250-pound fireplug registered a stirring 4.46 40-yard dash and put on a strong positional workout for onlookers, including a New England Patriots scout who took particular interest in the Thundering Herd defender. Harvey also logged a 32-inch vertical and 9-5 broad jump, with a 4.19-second short shuttle and 7.13 three-cone drill result.

    Harvey is an aggressive, energetic, play-making defender — some NFL team will take a chance on him for his special-teams promise and potential on defense.

    Ever since the season ended, Tennessee wide receiver Denarius Moore has boosted his draft stock into third-round to fourth-round consideration.

    The latest example was his 4.37 in the 40-yard dash at his campus Pro Day workout after running a 4.43 at the NFL scouting combine to go with a 36-inch vertical leap, a 9-10 broad jump, a 1.55 10-yard split and 13 repetitions in the bench press.

    Now, Moore is reaping some of the benefits of his athleticism with some face time with NFL teams.

    He visited the Miami Dolphins over the past two days and visits the Pittsburgh Steelers later this week.

    He has already visited the New York Giants and has conducted a private workout for the Atlanta Falcons. He also had a meeting with the Baltimore Ravens.

    The nearly 6-foot, 194-pounder caught a touchdown pass in the Texas vs. the Nation all-star game.

    As a senior, he caught 43 passes for nine touchdowns and 981 yards and averaged nearly 21 yards per reception.

    As a junior, he caught 40 passes for 540 yards and seven touchdowns.
