Default Steelers minicamp heightens coaches' insight

Steelers minicamp heightens coaches' insight

Sunday, April 22, 2007

As the Steelers continue to evaluate college players in preparation for the NFL draft, they are also using minicamp to take a closer look at what they've got.

It is no coincidence that Mike Tomlin scheduled the first of two Steelers minicamps -- the NFL permits teams with new head coaches to have two such camps instead of one -- the week before the draft.

"It just gives you a better insight in terms of the men that you work with," Tomlin said of seeing his players in a live, if controlled, setting. "And I think that's important if you talk about evaluating a team and moving forward and adding to your team."

Tomlin said this minicamp, which concludes today with a morning practice, isn't to look at players to see where they might fit in regards to the depth chart. It is, he said, a time for Tomlin and his assistants to get a better read on their players and with an eye -- make that plenty of eyes -- toward the draft.

"It's just good to get a general reference of the guys that you have firsthand outside of watching them on tape," Tomlin said. "There's a different feel you get as a coaching standpoint when you watch guys work firsthand; you see them communicate, you see what happens between snaps. You see how they emotionally respond to successes and failures."
