As Mike Tomlin and company are attending Missouri's pro day to watch Shane Ray, offensive coordinator Todd Haley and offensive line coach Mike Munchak are at Penn State's pro day to get a look at tight end prospect Jesse James.

James, a local Pittsburgh product, amazed scouts at the NFL Scouting Combine and caught the attention of the team who is looking for a possible replacement for veteran tight end Heath Miller. James ran a 4.83 40-yard dash at the combine, but was more noted for his size, strength and overall skill in both pass catching and blocking.

Sound familiar? James has been compared to a slightly more athletic Heath Miller and someone the Steelers are clearly taking a long look at as a possible mid to late round draft pick in the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft.
