The Wake Forest pro day does not take place until tomorrow, but sources tell me that fast-rising safety Jessie Bates III, who’s moved into the second day of the draft, was seen having dinner this evening with Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin.


Mark him higher on the list of draft picks ( if past results remain true) .

He's in play for 28. If the Steelers brain trust doesn't go to Stanford pro day in favor of Ohio State's, I'd move Bates near the top of the list.

He's a really good returner and plays the ball in the air well... his run support leaves something to be desired.

I agree with your assessment. March 22nd will tell a lot.

IF the Steelers are convinced that the best spot for Davis is SS or bust, and if they don't really believe Sutton or Allen is going to FS... then there are like two non-day three FS in this draft and they'll run to the podium to pick the one they like best at 28.

22nd of March will all but seal the pick prediction.

Picking FS in the 1st leaves a gaping hole in the middle of the Defense to try and fill on Day 2. Personally I believe that is the more important position to fill w/ a 1st rounder....

I’m not sure if ILB is a bigger hole or not, but the pool of FS is about 4 deep— 3 of whom are seen as top 40 players.

The Alabama players are in play: Tomlin and Colbert both at AL pro day #1.

Sleeper central. Malik Boynton 6'0 198 APU later in the draft. He plays man coverage and has played both safety and corner at high a level. Wrap up tackler. https://twitter.com/NFLDraftBible/statu ... pro-day%2F

I still really like Charvarius Ward MTSU as well.

I would add Daron Payne, just because it would be so them to throw us a curve like that.
