Default Updated List of Steelers Draft Visits

Haven't seen a full list of all of our draftee visits, so here it is:

Jerrell Harris, LB, Alabama
Keith Tandy, CB, West Virgina
Brandon Brooks, OG, Miami (Ohio)
Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
T.Y. Hilton, WR, Florida International
Derek Wolfe, DL, Cincinnatti
Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnatti
Bobby Massie, OT, Mississippi State
Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri
Akiem Hicks, DT, Regina (Canada)
Nick Perry, LB, USC
Mychal Kendricks, LB, California
Cameron Jackson, LB, Virginia
Olivier Vernon, LB, Miami
Dont'a Hightower, LB, Alabama
LaMichael James, RB, Oregon
David Paulson, TE, Oregon
Amini Silatolu, OG, Midwestern State
Hebron Fangupo, DT, BYU
Jeremy Jones, S, Wayne State
Dontari Poe, DT, Memhpis
Ladarius Green, TE, Louisianna-Lafayette
Keshawn Martin, WR, Michigan St
Andre Branch, DE, Clemson
John Hughes, DT, Cincy
Greg Childs, WR, Arkansas
Toney Clemons, WR, Colorado
Adrien Robinson, TE, Cincy
Kelvin Beachum, OL, Southern Methodist

Out of all of those guys I suppose I am pulling for us to grab Hightower, if for no other reason than to make sure those damn ratbirds don't get him.

With 3 TE's, Miller being a damn good one and a second year guy behind him, I don't see why we would be looking for a TE. Looks like O line, D line, and LB are the priorities based off that list. It would be nice to get a NT or ILB at #1, a starting guard in the second, a possible starting guard/tackle in the third and then LaMicheal James around 4 or 5 that would be awesome. Not sure why, I just think thats a lot of potential at a mid to low pick.

OFFENSIVE GUARD PROSPECT

4. AMINI SILATOLU Midwestern State 6-3 313 5.33 1-2

A defensive lineman in Tracy, Calif., Silatolu spent two years making the transition to O-line at a junior college before surfacing at Division II Midwestern State in 2010. "He's a tremendous athlete," Miami GM Jeff Ireland said. "He dominates that level of play. He's got power. He's got agility. Stays on his feet very well. His play certainly transitions to the NFL." Often compared to all-time Cowboys G Larry Allen. "Larry Allen just mauled people," one scout said. "This guy can hit you and knock you down. He's probably a little more athletic than Allen. He's every bit as good as the guard (Mike Iupati) who went to the 49ers. He's not a rocket scientist but he learns. He's just a little scary in the first round." Played LT, where he seemed to look bored at times. "He's got a chance of being a Pro Bowl player and also a chance of never factoring," another scout said. "I've always been of the philosophy that you better not completely whiff. He has Pro Bowl ability. He doesn't have Pro Bowl stability, or at least he hasn't had it. The between the ears is the concern. And he's making a position switch and a level jump."

Offensive Line Draft Ratings. Some pretty interesting reads. I don't know how much weight these write ups hold are though.

Heinz Hitman you must not have read this post very well if you haven't seen a full list of draft visits as I spent a lot of time putting together a list on page 2 with all the measurables of every player that visited us.

I merged threads. His was in the Main Steelers section previously, so didn't see this. We thank you for your quality posting.
