Carl Bradford has workouts scheduled with four other teams, seen as a second-round prospect

Rick Scuteri-US PRESSWIRE

Bradford is an excellent athlete who could fill in at a few different positions, as evidenced by the multiple meetings he has set up already. He visited the Steelers last week.

Arizona State edge player Carl Bradford won't draw criticism based on his athletic ability. He ran in the low 4.7 range at both the NFL Scouting Combine and his Pro Day, and his 37-inch vertical jump and his 10-foot-2 broad jump (first in his position group at the Combine) clearly show he has the measurements of an explosive player.

Bradford visited with the Steelers last week, and according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun and National Football Post, he's meeting with the Jaguars, Dolphins, Chargers and Falcons as well. According to Wilson, he's a second-round target.

Teams meet with lots of players, and even at positions teams are expected to target in a draft, maybe one out of six visitors are drafted. Still, Bradford indicates a desire by the team to improve their level of athleticism in their front seven. Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier, another athletic marvel, was in to visit with the team earlier in March as well.

Bradford's interest from multiple teams running multiple different schemes suggests many are intrigued by his versatility. The Steelers should be as well. The more playmakers, the better, on a team that registered just 32 sacks this past year.
