More news seeped out today regarding the colleigate pre-draft visits with the Pittsburgh Steelers, reports the Post-Gazette as well as other oulets. Another four draft prospects darkened doors at the South Side today, although the Post-Gazette was quick to insist that none are viewed as potential first-round picks. The four college hopefuls are:
- Austin Pettis, wide receiver, Boise State
- Da’rel Scott, running back, University of Maryland
- Cortez Allen, cornerback, The Citadel
- Ras-I Dowling, cornerback, University of Virginia
Unlike in years past, news of pre-draft visits has been scarce. In his weekly on-line chat on PG Plus, Ed Bouchette reported that the Steelers have not been announcing the names of visitors, and that news had to be gleamed from agents.
