    Players the Steelers have met or have shown interest in.....

    Below is a list of prospects the Steelers have met with at the combine or who they are linked to by a source....feel free to add more if you hear the information...

    OG Jonathan Cooper NC
    RB Montee Ball Wisconsin
    WR Robert Woods USC
    DT Jordan Hill PSU (He told reporter Steelers are interested in him)
    LB Michael Mauti PSU (Wexell says Steelers are interested in him)
    DE/OLB Ezekial Ansah BYU (As previously mentioned on this site)
    FS Kenny Vacaro Texas (Wexell reports Steelers will meet with him)
    OLB Jarvis Jones Georgia (Dulac speculates Steelers are interested in him (no kidding))
    WR Keenan Allen California (Dulac speculates Steelers are interested in him)

    All the info I have seen so far.

    I saw that Matt Barkely will meet with the Steelers. Don't think that it means anything, but interesting nonetheless. I believe it was in Peter King's MMQB.

    I read where Arizona is very interested in Barkley. They must have first heard that the Steelers like him, so there is a backup source.

    I think that is the best news I've heard so far. Really! Maybe the FO does have a clue.... Can't rely on Ben.

    I agree with you that developing a young backup for Ben should be a priority, but not a first or second round priority.

    Basically zero interestin o-line (except Cooper). Zero interest in TE.

    WR, S, LB - No surprises there.

    RB likely won't be BPA at #17. Thus far, it's looking like BPA between WR, S, LB... all positions of need (the steelers typical draft strategy especially in the 1st round.

    Well they may want to meet with D Moore since he is having a terrible combine. I didn't think there was a chance in hell he would be there at #17. They say "hamstring" in his 4.95/40 - 1.69/10. 12 on the bench? Wow...He is looking like Warmack at the combine. Looks like Tarzan on tape...Works out like Jane.

    only 12 reps on the bench press is totally unacceptable, no thanks...

    I'm not taking a kid off a draft board because a kid 6'4" 250 & 35" arms can't bench...But It was disappointing. One of the better all around DE/OLB in this draft on tape. I guess you didn't see his interview on NFL network. Said the right things. I will wait for his Proday. If he does 20 reps & 4.7 his tape speaks for itself. 20 years old...Wow. His "explosion" was there before his hamstring tightened up...Top 5. Lower body power is there it seems. What it may do is put him more towards 3-4 OLB than 4-3 DE. I watched as much 2011 tape of him I could find at OLB. There is something there. What I don't like is a pick that won't contribute in 2013.

    Not sure if I made this up myself or heard it somewhere, could be totally bogus, but did I hear Tomlin is not at the combine? Hopefully I just misheard something.....
