Comes from the list below. In the Tombert era, they've only picked one player whose pro day or private workout wasn't attended by Tomlin or Colbert OR. Here are the names bandied about as top 40 picks, where Tombert attended the pro day or private workout (different from visit to Pgh). Who are your most favored/least favored? All players who fit that description and who appear in Gil Brandt's Top 100 are listed:

Almost definitely gone
Probably Gone
Not a position of need
Unlikely top 50 pick:

There are 18 who are potentially 1st round picks, who will likely be there at 30, and who fit the profile above:

[RB Leonard Fournette
CB Marshon Lattimore
S Jamal Adams

[S Malik Hooker
DL Jonathan Allen

QB Mitch Trubisky
[QB Deshaun Watson
CB Gareon Conley

TE O.J. Howard
LB Reuben Foster
EDGE Derek Barnett
QB Patrick Mahomes II
LB Jarrad Davis
S Jabril Peppers
WR Mike Williams
CB Quincy Wilson
TE David Njoku
CB Tre'Darious White
WR/RB Curtis Samuel
EDGE Taco Charlton
CB Marlon Humphrey
S Marcus Maye
EDGE Tim Williams
DE/EDGE Chris Wormley
EDGE Ryan Anderson
WR Chris Godwin
C Pat Elfein
C Ethan Pocic
DL Davon Godchaux

EDGE/LB T.J. Watt
CB Jourdan Lewis
WR Malachi Dupree
RB Samaje Perine
CB Teez Tabor
WR ArDarius Stewart
DL Dalvin Tomlinson

LB Raekwon McMillan
TE Jordan Leggett
EDGE Carl Lawson
LB Duke Riley
RB Alvin Kamara
QB Dobbs
CB Sutton
EDGE Vince Biegel

Dude, the colors you used absolutely suck!

Can't read it, though I'd really like to...

What about Budda Baker and Malik McDowell

Now I'm off to the hospital for a brain scan after staring at this screen for too long.

DBs: Peppers, QWilson, TreWhite, Humphrey, Maye
EDGE: Barnett, Taco, TWilliams, Wormley, Watt, Lawson
LB: JDavis, Watt, Raekwon, Riley
Other: WR Williams, WR/RB Curtis Samuel, WR Godwin, RB Kamara
I think those last 4 are real longshots. Wormley as a Chickillo type reduced weight edge is a stretch. I don't think Riley is a 1st round guy on tape. I can't see Steelers taking Tim Williams in Rd 1, either.

Based on need and my hunches, I rank the odds like this:
1. Player from probably gone list who falls
2. CB Humphrey
3. S Peppers
4. CB QWilson
4. EDGE Barnett
5. LB JDavis
6. EDGE Lawson
7. S Maye
8. LB Raekwon
9. CB White
10. EDGE Taco
12. LB/EDGE Watt
12. Surprise defensive player they didn't meet with
13. Offensive player
13. EDGE/DE Wormley
14. EDGE Tim Williams
15. LB Riley

No TOMBERT pro day visit to Washington nor Michigan State, correct? Same with UConn and Temple. I think you can safely rule those guys out unless the draft goes awry in first 30 picks.

Hmmm.

Sniff, sniff.

Do I smell a wager?

Also, history says they favor underaged players. Age listed at start of 2017 season:

Raekwon McMillan 20.8
Quincy Wilson 21
David Njoku 21.1
Humphrey 21.1
Derek Barnett 21.2
Chris Godwin 21.5
Jarrad Davis 21.8
Jabril Peppers 21.9
Conley 22.2

Your pick is going to come from there, unless there's a big shakeup in picks 1-29 or a Steelers trade

Sure... you want someone not on this list?

Yep, if history stands.
Some of those players-
C Pat Elfein
C Ethan Pocic
DL Davon Godchaux- are really unrealistic

I fear for your sanity with the draft still a week off :lol:

I have this unusual feeling that they are going to go ILB in the first, barring someone unexpectedly dropping. I just don't buy that they are sold on Vince Williams as a full time starter.
J Davis/Raekwon???
