Bilal Nichols...

Nichols will be on an official visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers tomorrow. http://draftanalyst.com/nfl-draft-news-notes-april-15


I don't know about Goedert either, Pabst. I haven't seen him linked to the Steelers other than that article so....

I do not think Christian Kirk is a 1st rounder, and I don't really like him.

Nichols is confirmed, and apparently they really like LSU...that's the 3rd visit on top of going to the Pro Day.

Those two LSU linemen are good fits and underrated.

I'm relatively sure that Labriola doesn't report the guys who come in on weekends & holidays.

South Carolina State linebacker Darius Leonard announced he had arrived in Pittsburgh on Friday night via his Instagram account, presumably ahead of a meeting with the Steelers the next day.

Matthew Thomas is interesting. A variety of injuries over his career and some off -the field allusions... but he can move on the field

Rapoport is reporting this as well. Don't want to write it down as "official" just yet, but hopefully it's confirmed tomorrow

Alabama S Ronnie Harrison (No. 38 prospect on @MoveTheSticks' Top 50) had private meetings/workouts with PIT, NYG, DET, TEN, JAX, MIN, CIN, CAR, SEA, HOU, NE, and PHI. Versatile player who should go Round 2.

The Steelers omitted Stanford safety Justin Reid from the list earlier today. The second-round target is at the facility as well

Got the confirmation (finally).

jebrick - the Steelers met with Harrison at the combine for sure. They may have had another meeting at his pro day.

Looks as though we may be done:

Steelers predraft visits have concluded. There were 21 reported visits. (Maybe a few more not reported). Here is the breakdown of the reported visits: 6 ILB, 5 DBs, 4 DL, 3 WRs, 2 RB, 1 OL


There are 23 confirmed names on our list - LVE and Kyzir White were both reported by Pittsburgh media but never confirmed by the Steelers/Labriola.

Former #Gophers DT Steven Richardson worked out recently for the hometown #Bears. The Steelers, Seahawks, 49ers, etc. have also shown interest. Richardson had many great moments in the maroon, gold, and white. https://twitter.com/DWolfsonKSTP/status ... 5504526338
Not sure if they have him scheduled for an official visit or not. Saw this and decided to post it.

Steelers had South Carolina State’s Darius Leonard in for a visit, although he’s more of a second-round pick and that might be where they find their man in this draft. http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/stee ... 1804200124
Didn't see this one listed either...

Darius Leonard is the "break the TV" pick, at any point in this draft that isn't after already selecting Skai Moore.

Why?

Because he can’t play in our defense. He plays like a safety and doesn’t read or take on blocks. Watch his games and not his highlight reel, because his splash plays are deceiving. At his LOC, he’s a nice run and chase guy when given room, but I don’t think the cerebral part of his game is very good and he tested poorly, to boot.

Give me the other #10 playing ILB in South Carolina all day.

Found this today. Several days old though there was no mention of this 'potentially harmful' information regarding LVE....

Updated April 18, 2018
By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.

One of the late-rising prospects during the leadup to the 2018 NFL Draft has been Boise State linebacker Leighton Vander Esch. He put together some excellent workouts for teams, showing speed and athleticism in his 6-foot-4, 256-pound frame. Injuries limited Vander Esch to six games in 2016, but he exploded as a junior with 141 tackles with 8.5 tackles for a loss, four sacks, four passes broken up and three interceptions. That injury history, however, has still comeback to bite Vander Esch, as WalterFootball.com has learned that one team has removed him from their draft board after flunking him medically.

Sources from four teams said they felt Vander Esch belongs on the second day of the 2018 NFL Draft and would go there. Two other team sources thought Vander Esch could go late in the first round. One team that flunked him medically said they had a third-round grade on Vander Esch before the medical report ruled him out.

"To me, he's a third-round talent, but probably will go higher," said an AFC general manager. "He has gotten a lot of hype, but he plays soft. He's too much like Paul Posluszny for me. He's a good player and will have a lot of tackles, but most of them will come four yards downfield. He's not an impact-at-the-line guy like a Ray Lewis, Luke Kuechly, Jon Beason or Brian Urlacher."

Helping Vander Esch to go in the first round are teams not having 32 first-round grades. It varies by team, but in the final dozen picks of the first round, there will be players with second-round grades getting selected because there are not enough true first-rounders. Vander Esch could be one of those players, but medical concerns also might cause him to slide to Day 2 of the 2018 NFL Draft.

I heard he had a pinched nerve for one game and started wearing the neck brace. But we do not see the medicals.
