    Default 5 college players visiting Steelers

    5 college players visiting Steelers
    Wednesday, April 07, 2010
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Some of the star power in the upcoming draft and players with checkered college seasons in 2009 are paying a visit to the Steelers today.

    The five players include two big-name wide receivers, Notre Dame's Golden Tate and Oklahoma State's Dez Bryant. Also at their facility today is Oregon running back LaGarrette Blount. Blount was suspended by his team for much of last season for punching an opponent and Bryant was suspended by the NCAA for having a relationship with an agent and he played in only three games.

    The two other visitors are linebackers, Koa Misi of Utah and Adrian Tracy of William & Mary.

    That brings to 19 the number of players who have visited the Steelers over the past two weeks. The team can have up to 30 visits by April 14.

    I would love to Blount in the black and gold. His issues are with other football players and that's fine by me.

    Same here.... Yea, I know he has "anger" issues, and made a huge mistake. But he is a quality RB that would be going alot higher in the draft absent this occurance... Maybe he comes at a "steal", maybe not... We'll see.

    Could the drafting of Dez Bryant (dont think he'll be there) or Golden Tate spell the end for Santonio Holmes as a Steeler?

    I find it hard to believe that the Rooney's/Colbert/Tomlin are this interested in Blount knowing his past issues.I figured that they'd had enough bull**** with Ben.....and Smokey....and Reed.......and Harrison......

    Blount was suspended 3 times in the short 2 yrs. at Oregon. More importantly, he has been completely shut down every time he's played a decent defense.

    i would rather have charles scott as a UDFA/late pick, if he can preve he's over the broken collar bone.

    gerhart wouldn't be bad, either.

    I hear ya bro...but how many more years can we get out of Hines? And I doubt that ARE plays out his contract.

    Guess we might need Sweed to step up in the event that the Rooneys "make and example" out of Holmes.

    Or...maybe... Dallas Baker finally pans out...Right NKy?
