Today is tight end day at the Steelers. They have their second UFA visit of the year, 6-foot-8 Leonard Pope, a tight end drafted in the third round by Arizona and most recently played in Kansas City. There’s Ben Roethlisberger’s tall receiver.
Also spending time in their offices on the South Side today are three college prospects, including Missouri tight ende Michael Egnew. Akiem Hicks, who played collegiately at Regina in Canada, is the rare college prospect from our northern neighbors. I wrote from the NFL meetings that they played to have him in and he’s here today.
Also on hand is linebacker Nick Perry of Southern Cal.
Egnew is probably among the top five tight end prospects. Hicks has been all over the map. Perry is ranked by some among the top 3 or 4 outside linebacking prospects.
