One particular item caught our eye, for pretty obvious reasons.Perhaps priority one for the Steelers Tuesday really was getting the dirt on one of the more high-risk-high-reward prospects in this year's draft: Florida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.
The experienced draft-related personnel both in the media and among teams will tell you never believe fully the impressions teams are trying to give during Draft Season. We believe Tackett saw several Steelers clothing-adorned people talking to Benjamin, but knowing these kinds of reports will circulate, it raises questions as to how interested the Steelers were before attending his Pro Day, and how interested they are now after they've spoken to him.
Both Steelers and Broncos seem really interested in Kelvin Benjamin. Lots of representatives talking to him from those two.— Dustin Tackett (@dtackett_) March 18, 2014
If nothing else, they put in a lot of time and effort just to put up a smokescreen. Perhaps, though, they were just going down there for some tacos.
Just got finished eating tacos with Steelers OC Todd Haley at Banditos, joking about running into each other after last year's Pro Day.— Dustin Tackett (@dtackett_) March 18, 2014
