The Pittsburgh Steelers positions of need have not been a secret when it comes to positions who are targeted with their pre-draft visits. On Thursday the team hosted four defensive players to the team's headquarters to get to know the players in a more one-on-one setting .

The team is hosting safety Vonn Bell from Ohio State, cornerback Jonathan Jones of Auburn, safety T.J. Green from Clemson, cornerback Ryan Smith from North Carolina Central and linebacker Jatavis Brown from Akron.

The most recent crop of visitors moves the overall numbers of the team's pre-draft visits heavily leaning towards the defensive side of the football. This is to be expected, especially after the team's run in Free Agency saw them make many additions, and retain several players, on the offensive side of the football.

Take a look at the total numbers of the Steelers pre-draft visits, by position, and be sure to check out the BTSC Prospect Visitor Tracker for all the information you need leading up to draft day.
