The Pittsburgh Steelers will have certain players on their early NFL Draft radar. Here are the six Pro Days I fully expect Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert to attend. 

In order for the Steelers to draft a player in the first round, Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert must be on hand at their Pro Day. This is essentially an unsung rule based on the trends we have seen in the past, as it has been a requirement of every first-round pick since at least 2010.

It only makes sense. If your head coach and general manager aren’t willing to visit a prospect at their pro day, there’s probably not enough interest in taking them with their first pick in the NFL Draft.

There have been a handful of Pro Days that have already come and passed, but no sign of Tomlin or Colbert anywhere prior to March 16th. That’s going to change soon. Though there are many conflicting Pro Day schedules that will make it hard for the Steelers brass to choose where to go, I can almost assure you that their top dogs will be on hand at these six NFL Pro Days:

Steelers will attend Georgia Pro Day on March 16th

UPDATE: Mike Tomlin, Kevin Colbert, and Brian Flores were all reportedly on hand at Georgia’s Pro Day.

This one is a given, and I would venture a guess that every single NFL team will send their brass to scout the national champions one more time before the 2022 NFL Draft. The Georgia Bulldogs are loaded with talent across their roster, and this is one of the deepest defenses I’ve ever seen on a college football team.

Some of the names that the Steelers could be eyeing as early as the first round (assuming they are willing to bypass taking a QB at pick 20) include defensive tackles, Jordan Davis and Devonte Wyatt. It’s possible that the nation’s best linebacker, Nakobe Dean, could also be a candidate.

If they don’t take a Georgia player in round one, day two is a great time to land one as players like OG Jamaree Salyer, S Lewis Cine, and linebackers Quay Walker and Channing Tindall would make a lot of sense. You can’t really go wrong with selecting a Georgia player this year, and the Steelers know how impressive these prospects are.
