Steelers pre-draft visits: Steelers to host CB Bradley Roby, two linebackers, Friday

The top cornerbacks of the draft have all visited with the Steelers now, and the team continues to look at mid-round linebacker options.

The Steelers are going through their linebackers list of prospects for the 2014 NFL Draft, apparently, hosting two more (Carl Bradford of Arizona State and Kevin Pierre-Louis of Boston College) Friday, according to Steelers Digest editor Bob Labriola.

Roby joins Darqueze Dennard, Justin Gilbert, Kyle Fuller and Justin Verrett as cornerbacks who have spoken with the team, whether at the Steelers' facility, at a Pro Day or at the Combine. They are largely considered the top five cornerbacks available in this year's draft.

Bradford, a 6-foot-1, 243-pound multi-position linebacker prospect, played a lot on the outside in college. The Sun Devils' aggressive scheme put him in position to use the athleticism he has, and that may not necessarily translate well to the NFL. He's spent time at defensive end and inside linebacker as well.

Pierre-Louis is a real interesting prospect. Build sort of in the mold of a player like Terence Garvin, he tested well above his outside linebacker peers in most speed and agility categories at the Combine. He also measured in at 6-foot-0, 232 pounds, suggesting his best pro position may be safety.
