Boise State wide receiver Austin Pettis is scheduled to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers next week, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
Pettis has drawn fourth-round and fifth-round grades from draft analysts.
Pettis ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds at the NFL scouting combine, but was extremely productive in college and has ideal size at 6-foot-3, 209 pounds.
The two-time first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selection is sure-handed, catching 71 passes last season for 951 yards and touchdoowns.
As a junior, he caught 65 passes for 855 yards and 14 touchdowns.
He ranks as Boise State's career leader with 229 receptions and 39 touchdowns, finishing second with 2,838 receiving yards.
The Broncos ranked second in scoring offense last season, averaging 46.67 points per contest last season.
In their Las Vegas Bowl win over Utah, Pettis caught 12 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown.
