Default Steelers welcome draft prospects

Steelers welcome draft prospects
By Scott Brown
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Tuesday, March 18, 2008

Buzz up!


The upcoming NFL Draft and offseason conditioning were the focus Monday at the Steelers' South Side facility.
On a day when the Steelers started voluntary workouts for their returning players, the team also hosted a pair of college prospects, including West Virginia defensive tackle Keilen Dykes.

In addition to Dykes, Maryland defensive tackle Dre Moore met with Steelers coaches and scouts.

Yesterday was the first day that college players eligible for the draft are allowed to visit NFL teams.

Teams are allowed to host as many as 30 players before the draft.
Both interior lines are areas that the Steelers figure to target in the draft, which will be held April 26-27.

They haven't attempted to upgrade either through free agency, as the team has only signed running back/kick returner Mewelde Moore and linebacker Keyaron Fox.

Dre Moore is the more highly touted of the two prospects the Steelers met with Monday.

The 6-foot-4, 305-pounder led Maryland with six sacks last season and was a first-team all-ACC selection.

Dykes, who is 6-4, 295 pounds, had three sacks and four tackles for losses for the Mountaineers in 2007.http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_557763.html

NFL Notebook: Steelers take look at two DTs
Tuesday, March 18, 2008
From local and wire dispatches

The Steelers entertained their first two college football prospects yesterday, both defensive tackles.

Keilen Dykes (6 feet 5, 295 pounds) of West Virginia University and Dre Moore (6-4, 311) of the University of Maryland spent time talking with coaches and scouts at the team's facility.

Yesterday was the first time each NFL team could have college prospects visit their facilities for extended looks. They are not permitted to work out. Each NFL team can invite as many as 30 players between now and the week before the draft, April 26-27.

Scout.com rates Moore as the fifth-best prospect at defensive tackle, and rates Dykes at No. 14.

Also, the Steelers began their informal offseason workouts yesterday that consist of weight training and some brief work on the field.

I for sure look for the steelers to take a DE very early in the upcoming draft, and it wouldnt suprise me if it is in the 1st either.
