Most would agree the majority of the team's needs are on the defensive side of the ball, especially in the secondary. When a team ranks 30th in the NFL in pass defense, something has to change. Some teams look to free agency, others turn to the draft. Although the Steelers did put a waiver claim in for recently released CB Ifo Ekpre-Olumu, the team seems singularly focused on cornerbacks and safeties in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The team's most recent visitors to their team headquarters would hold a trio of defensive backs and an offensive lineman.
Draft visitors (4/6): OT Caleb Benenoch, S Keanu Neal, S Darian Thompson, CB Tavon Young— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) April 6, 2016
Outside of Caleb Benenock, Neal, Thompson and Young are all players the team has shown interest in at their Pro Days, and/or at the NFL Scouting Combine. As stated before, nothing really shows interest in a prospect than when they travel to the team's facility for an official visit.
To date, including Wednesday's visit, the Steelers have hosted the following positions:
Offensive Line: 2
Defensive Line: 1
Each team is permitted 30 official pre-draft visits, and, as you can see, the Steelers are just getting started.
