    Steelers well represented at Florida State Pro Day

    Steelers well represented at Florida State Pro Day

    By Neal Coolong on Mar 18 2014



    They aren't all there just for Kelvin Benjamin, but he's certainly worth a look. The only question is who's back in Pittsburgh hanging out with Lance Moore?

    Is ESPN's Scott Brown daring to suggest the Steelers are there checking out wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, a target of the Steelers with the 15th overall pick in May's draft?

    Just how interested are the Steelers in Benjamin?

    Dare on, say some. Others will just say Florida State is stacked with talent, and Benjamin is but one player the team is likely to be interested in as it pertains to putting together their final scouting reports.

    Benjamin reportedly is working out in front of Mike Tomlin, Kevin Colbert and Dan Rooney Jr., among others, leading to the natural question, "who's back in Pittsburgh with Lance Moore?"

    Maybe that says it all.

    Kidding aside, it's not exactly rare for teams to make in-and-out arrangements for the pro days of large schools like FSU. With so many prospects, they can get in, speak to the ones they'd like to speak with and get out, getting the plane ride to talk it over.

    The Steelers have been big fans of Flordia State players over the years, with corrent linebackers Lawrence Timmons and Vince Williams having come from there.

    Tomlin, Colbert AND Haley was there. NFL Network showed Haley talking one-on-one with Benjamin.

    Wonder if they talked to the safety - Brooks?
    1. C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice
    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
    5. Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech
    6. Josh Mauro DE Stanford

    Its the Offense's turn to use the 1st rounder this year. It will be a WR for sure. Only Question in my mind is will it be Benjamin or Evans. Setting aside the miracle of Watkins falling.
    LETS GO MOUNTAINEERS!
    Here We Go Steelers!


    Draft 2.0

    1. Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
    2. Jason Verrett, CB, TCU
    3. Kareem Martin, DE, UNC
    4. Donte Moncrief, WR, Mississippi
    5a. Shaquille Richardson, CB, Arizona
    5b. Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami
    6a. Kevin Pierre-Louis, OLB, Boston College
    6b. Glen Stanley, OLB, Albany St
    7. Beau Allen, NT, Wisconsin

    If the Steelers do their homework (which they will) and think Kelvin Benjamin is the man...I'll be ok with with it.

    I think there are knocks on benjamin that make him risky, but there are seriously no denying his tools.

    He could be Reggie Williams or Jon Baldwin, but man he could be special too.

    My fear is that he never is more than a jump ball threat, but my hopes is they could mold him into Larry Fitzgerald and a well rounded player
