2014 NFL Draft: Steelers GM Kevin Colbert will be at Rutgers at Louisville Thursday

New, comments

Dozens of scouts from several NFL teams will be in attendance tonight as Rutgers takes on Teddy Bridgewater's Louisville Cardinals.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert and Jaguars GM David Caldwell will be looking on as several pro prospects take the field in a nationally televised contest between Rutgers and Louisville. The main attraction will undoubtedly be Cardinals junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Often touted as the top choice for the 2014 NFL Draft, Bridgewater will be facing a weak Rutgers secondary, so he's likely to put on a show for his distinguished guests.

Perhaps the Steelers GM will also get a look at Bridgewater's most highly touted opponent, Brandon Coleman - a 6-foot-6, 220-pound junior with 15 catches for 220 yards and 2 TDs this season. He is often mocked in the first few rounds in early projections. But the Steelers will likely do their due diligence on Bridgewater as well - while he's there, he may as well.

He looks to have legitimate tools teams look for in a franchise quarterback. And with the way this season has been going, a complete overhaul of the roster has to be somewhere in the back of Colbert's mind.

Quarterback play has not been one of the Steelers paramount problems on their way to an 0-4 start, but the team will likely leave no stone unturned in searching for players that may help them improve.
