Exclamation Draft prospects visiting

Found this at another board, thought it was interesting:

Thought this could be interesting. The Steelers can visit 20 prospects plus any local
players (within so many miles of complex). Here are some links to who they are looking at:
Maurice Drew, RB, UCLA
Joseph Addai, RB, LSU
Charles Spencer, OG, Pittsburgh
Daniel Bullocks, S, Nebraska
Darnell Bing, S, USC
Demetrius Williams, WR, Oregon
Daryn Colledge, OT, Boise State
Jon Alston, OLB/S, Stanford
TJ Rushing, DB, Stanford

This was in print elsewhere, but I am taking it from here:
Jason Allen is scheduled for a visit.

One other interesting tidbit, I heard that of the last three drafts, every player taken on the first day had visited with the Steelers. In other words, if he is not visiting, it is very unlikely he will be drafted by us.

That is about half our visits listed. And, honestly, if I had to rate those 10 players, I would rank them as follows and the round we would need to select them in......
1-Jason Allen-1st round
2-Daniel Bullocks-1st round
3-Joseph Addai-1st round
4-Maurice Drew-2nd round
5-Demetrius Williams-2nd round
6-Jon Alston-2nd round
7-Darnell Bing-2nd round
8-Daryn Colledge-3rd round
9-Charles Spencer-3rd round
10-TJ Rushing-2nd day

A final note, TJ Rushing is a corner from Stanford. While he is not an elite corner, he could become a solid player that moves into the dime backer role. Also, he is a monster return guy with blistering speed. That is his real value. He could replace a guy like Iwuoma as our special team DB.
