The Steelers are hosting University of Arizona wide receiver Mike Thomas today as part of their preparation for the NFL draft.

Thomas led the Wildcats last season in receiving as he caught 74 passes for 825 yards and four touchdowns.

An all-purpose threat, Thomas scored a touchdown rushing, receiving and on a punt return last season.

The 5-8, 195-pounder finished his career as the Pac 10 leader in career receptions (259).

He is believed to be the first college prospect that counts against the 30 visits the Steelers are allowed to host before the draft at the end of the month.
