Draft visits for April 10: QB Tyler Murphy from Boston College: WR Breshad Perriman from UCF; TE Wes Saxton from S. Alabama— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) April 10, 2015
The Pittsburgh Steelers organization is continuing their work with NFL Draft prospects by bringing in three more athletes for interviews. The three new players are WR Breshad Perriman from UCF, QB Tyler Murphy from Boston College and TE Wes Saxton from South Alabama.
Murphy marks the first quarterback the Steelers have brought in for a pre-draft visit, and if they will spend a draft pick on Murphy it most likely would be the late round variety.
Other than Murphy, the Steelers continue to search for answers for their lack of depth at the WR position as well as TE. Although not commonly thought to be a high draft need at either position, Perriman is thought to be a potential first round draft choice, making his visit intriguing. Saxton is considered a pass-catching tight end, who lacks the ability to be an in-line blocker, but the Steelers could use a more athletic pass catching tight end to compliment the traditional blocking tight ends typically employed by Todd Haley.
