NFL from the sidelines

After hobnobbing around the NFL in the press boxes and sidelines, sports reporter Dale Lolley will let you know the insider scoop. Dale can also be heard on Tuesday nights throughout the season from 7 to 9 p.m. on WBGG 970-AM. Follow him on Twitter at fdlolleyor.

Three more visitors

The Steelers have hosted, or are prepared to host, four more prospects.

They are Boise State wide receiver Austin Pettis, Alabama nose tackle Frank Kearse, Utah State corner Curtis Marsh and Louisville corner Johnny Patrick.

None are considered first-round prospects.

Pettis is a slot-type receiver who's all over draft boards. I've seen some that have him as the fifth-best receiver in this class. Others that have him much lower.

He had a suspension as a sophomore that has not been explained - at least publicly - by the school. But anybody who saw Boise play this season knows he's a talent.

Kearse is an interesting late-round prospect. He was pretty productive at Alamaba - he even had two interceptions as a sophomore - but lacks the overall athleticism of some of the top interior prospects.

He's an overachiever-type who would fit in well with the Steelers.

Marsh and Patrick are both decent-sized corners - though Marsh is bigger and faster. Both are likely second-round or lower picks.

I hope we draft Austin Pettis. Hines Ward 2.0 but bigger.
