It was a wild start to the week for Pittsburgh Steelers fans. After thinking that all 30 of their pre-draft visits were essentially finalized, a late shakeup just ten days before the 2022 NFL Draft leaves us with questions. Now we are left to pick up the pieces.

With the draft nearing, we are scrambling to connect the dots to Pittsburgh's possible selections early. The most recent Steelers news sheds more light on what we could see and brings a pair of prospects to the forefront.

Steelers news:

On Monday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN reported that Georgia OT Broderick Jones and Clemson DT Bryan Bresee were in the facility for pre-draft visits. This is particularly interesting as the Steelers have already met with or were scheduled to meet with 30 prospects (including two additional local visits that don't count toward their 30-visit total.

The speculation is that Pittsburgh may have canceled visits with OT Dawand Jones and CB Kelee Ringo to make room for these visits, but that's not confirmed at this time. Broderick Jones and Bryan Bresee now check all three boxes when it comes to NFL Combine, Pro Day, and pre-draft visits with Pittsburgh. Both should move even further up the list and should be considered strong candidates to be taken with the 17th overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Mike Tomlin's son, Dino, hit the field at Boston College for the BC spring game. After the wide receiver scored a touchdown, he had some fun with a celebratory dance. Coach Tomlin, who was in the stands, took notice.

Tomlin could be seen smiling after his son's touchdown reception in the exhibition game but noted that the 'coach' in him wouldn't have found it as amusing. Dino Tomlin played his first three seasons at Maryland before transferring to Boston College in 2022.

NFL news:

We have a new leader for the biggest contract in NFL history. On April 17th, the Philadelphia Eagles made QB Jalen Hurts a very rich man -- inking their signal-caller to a five-year, $255 million contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This deal includes a whopping $179.3 million guaranteed. At $51 million per year in new money earnings, Hurts tops Aaron Rodgers as the current richest contract in the NFL.
