Article is a few years old, but here's a primer on what constitutes a 'local' visit.
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/04/05/breaking-down-the-rules-regarding-pre-draft-rookie-visits/
Quote:
Players who attend college or reside in a club’s “metropolitan area” can be given a physical examination without counting against the 30-player limit, unless the club provides transportation for the visit. Also, a player who attends college or whose hometown is in a club’s “metropolitan area” may be timed and tested at the club’s facility, as long as the club does not provide transportation.

“Metropolitan area” is defined as contiguous suburbs. There isn’t a 25-mile, 50-mile, or any other type of mileage radius rule. The league office uses the 2011 Rand-McNally Road Atlas to determine the metropolitan area of a city.


I don't think that Youngstown qualifies.

On a positive note, Kaboly just confirmed that Nicholson is a local visit (he's from Monroeville).

@nfldraftscout
Samson Ebukam is on his 3rd of 12 visits. So much interest teams are flying him from team city to team city. Today is Pitt, tomorrow is GB https://twitter.com/nfldraftscout/statu ... 1965089792


Intriguing prospect for sure. Ran a 4.5 40/1.53 split, vertical of 39", broad of 10'10", SS 4.34, 7.07 3 cone and benched 225 24x. Athleticism/play strength is there. Bit raw but very moldable.

Tim Williams definitely had a private workout with Steelers.

Ebukam spent a lot of time in coverage, more of a well-rounded OLB. He can play though and tested well.

Any place where I can watch Samson Ebukan? Now that he's been such a popular topic around here I need to do my homework.
