The Steelers will have a pre-draft visit with California defensive end Cameron Jordan. The senior will visit not only the Steelers, but Buffalo and Tampa Bay, as well, according to Joe Fortenbaugh of the National Football Post. Jordan has already sat down with the Lions.

Last season with Cal he had 34 tackles for loss and 17.5 sacks, he also was dominant at the 2011 Senior Bowl, though he did not play on Chan Gailey’s South squad. Jordan measured in at 6′4″ and 287 pounds at the Combine, with gigantic arms (35″) and hands (11.1″) – perfect for a 3-4 defensive end. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.78 seconds.

it sure would be nice to have a DE thats just as good at pass rushing than clogging up lanes.

i would love to land him in the draft, i just wonder if we would play him at end or OLB. I would assume OLB and with his size and speed he may be one of the best

He would be a great addition, but what does that mean?? Aaron Smith is done???

I still think we need more help at OT, CB or even a real ILB successor to Farrior.

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.

Jordan will go top 20, and the only way we will get him is to trade up for him. And I would HATE it if we traded up and didn't get a CB or OL.

would you prefer that they wait till he announces his retirement to find his successor ? :noidea: i've been saying for awhile now that i wouldn't be surprised if we ended up with another DE as the first pick. not because its a glaring need , but because of the talent depth at DE in this draft , a DE may very well be the BPA at 31.
it might just be another " mendenhall " like situation.

Brandon Harris better not be on the board.

I wouldn't like this move at all. Smith already has his replacement in Ziggy Hood. Is Cameron Jordon going to rot on the bench for the next few seasons? Because Keisel still has a good 3 years left in the tank by the looks of it. This years' draft is stacked with good DBs.

I can't see a scenario where we wouldn't have to give up at least a 2nd and a 3rd or a high 2012 pick to get him. I'm not sure we need to give up that much for someone that will not impact our game in the immediate future.
