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.

#Steelers, still in search of help at CB, have Jalen Myrick (Minnesota) scheduled for a pre-draft visit for this week. https://twitter.com/caplannfl/status/85 ... n-adams%2F

Villanova DL Tanoh Kpassagnon is visiting the Steelers on Tuesday.
Kpassagnon is an impressive looking prospect, and when it is all put together his tape is outstanding. However, that does not happen often enough. Kpassagnon might fit as an interior defensive lineman or on the edge, depending on the scheme.

The Steelers are hosting Alabama edge rusher Tim Williams on Tuesday, according to Bob Labriola.
Williams likely lands in the second round, but the Steelers in the back half of round one is not unreasonable. Williams can certainly rush the passer, and the Steelers are absolutely in need of a young player to do that on their roster. Williams is also an underrated run defender.

That they are using a visit on Tim Williams and yet no Willis nor Tyus Bowser visit or proday attendance nor combine meeting...

I might as well proactively break my TV.

I see Tanoh Kpassagnon as a 4-3 RDE. i am not sure he can be effective losing 10-15 lbs to play OLB

He's not an edge guy at all. He might be a 3-4 DE someday.

I'd rather have Wormley, Deatrich Wise, or Cameron Malveaux to play 3-4 DE, though.

I don't know whether to laugh or let the impending doom wash over me. We get Jervis 2.0 and we're likely fucked and won't get over the hump and back to the big dance. Being the optimist I am, I'll root for the grand fucking slam homerun pick that turns out to be JJ Watt type of monster. :)
