    2011 Official Visit Thread

    Doing another Official Visit thread. Similar to last years viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10999 and the year before that viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5926 If you see a visit lined up for the Steelers please post the info here.

    Players will be moved to Official once their visit has taken place. Also only visits to the south side will be counted here. Looking for the 30 official allowed. Other visits/meetings could be listed in the tread somewhere. Hawaiiansteel already posted a list of players interviewed at the Combine. Thanks to him for that!

    Thanks for the Sticky

    Steelers' next door 'neighbors' stop by for pre-draft visit
    Wednesday, March 16, 2011
    By Gerry Dulac

    The Steelers had seven players who are accustomed to being in the building at their South Side offices today, but it wasn't any of their own.

    Seven Pitt players who could be taken in the NFL draft went next door and visited with Coach Mike Tomlin and director of football operations Kevin Colbert.

    The players were wide receiver Jon Baldwin, defensive ends Jabaal Sheard and Greg Romeus, fullback Henry Hynoski, running back Dion Lewis, offensive tackle Jason Pinkston and safety Dom DiCicco.

    Because Pitt is a local team, those players do not count against the 30 prospects the Steelers are allowed to bring in before the draft.

    Meantime, the team announced that Burt Lauten will serve as interim communications coordinator, replacing Dave Lockett, who left the team after 13 seasons.

    Cal defensive end met with the Lions on Tuesday.

    Joe Fortenbaugh
    MARCH 16, 2011

    While the lockout continues to dominate the headlines, it’s business as usual for the hundreds of NFL prospects looking to improve their draft stock.



    Cam Jordan

    And some of their dance cards are beginning to fill up.

    California defensive end Cameron Jordan—who is currently the NFP’s fourth-rated DE prospect—has upcoming visits scheduled with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Buffalo Bills, per a league source.

    In addition to those aforementioned visits, Jordan met with the Detroit Lions at their practice and training facility on Tuesday.

    The 6-4, 282-pound senior racked up 51 tackles and six sacks in 12 games with the Golden Bears last season en route to earning first team All-PAC-10 honors.

    • During Pittsburgh's pro-day the top prospects both looked good in position drills. Jon Baldwin ran much better routes compared to his combine workout and caught the ball well. The big-bodied pass catcher could slide into the late part of Round 1.

    Meanwhile Jabaal Sheard also looked good in a variety of defensive line and linebacker drills. He's unlikely to slip past the middle of round two based on his combine time (4.67s) and performance today.

    Cameron Jordan to visit Steelers


    According to published reports, California defensive lineman Cameron Jordan is among the players scheduled to visit the Steelers.

    The 6-4, 287-pound Jordan is a classic 3-4 end with plenty of upside potential. He's also a player capable of moving inside on passing downs. He's a first-round talent.

    Also scheduled to meet with the Steelers are Eastern Washington running back Taiwan Jones and Citadel cornerback Cortez Allen.

    Jones, 6-1, 200, is considered a mid-round prospect. He's had some injury problems, so the visit could have been to clear up some medical issues. He missed three games, including a pair of playoff games with a broken foot.

    Jones did have nine 100-yard games, including a pair over 200 yards, in 2010, finishing second in FCS in rushing.

    Allen, 6-1, 197, is a mid- to late-round talent who could be a small-school gem. He had just 22 tackles and two interceptions in 2010 as most opponents stayed away from him.

    California University of Pennsylvania QB Josh Portis visited the Miami Dolphins last week. That has been his lone visit thus far.

    Source: Texas CB Curtis Brown to visit Steelers on March 30-31

    Mon, Mar 21st, 2011 by DePaoli

    Latest Steelers Draft Buzz



    The NFL draft is quickly approaching, just 5 weeks away, and the Steelers are aggressively looking at the cornerback position with their focus expected to be on the cornerback position in rounds 2-3 and possibly round 1.

    The team has begun scheduling draft visits and the team will host Texas CB Curtis Brown on March 30-31 for a two-day visit, a team source tells Inside Pittsburgh Sports.

    Brown whose regarded as a 2nd round prospect, is a player the Steelers are said to be very high on.

    Brown is a fit on several ends in regards to what the Steelers look for in cornerbacks.
    Brown has good size at 6’0” 185, and is an above average run stopper, an attribute the Steelers regard highly with their corners.

    Brown ran a 4.51 at the combine and posted a 39.5 inch vertical. His draft stock is on the rise.
