The lead up to the 2018 NFL Draft is in full swing for NFL teams and scouting departments, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are spreading themselves thin as NCAA football program hold their own personal Pro Days to give their own players a fresh, and comfortable, platform to show off their skills.
The Steelers were in attendance at the Oklahoma Pro Day, checking out a number of prospects. New offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner was there to check out some offensive talent from the Sooners.

However, while Fichtner was watching Baker Mayfield sling the rock, Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin were present at the Virginia Tech pro day, likely checking out the Edmunds brothers.
As pointed out below by Tommy Jaggi, Tremaine Edmunds will be long gone before the Steelers select 28th in the first round, but his brother Terrell is a safety prospect worth keeping an eye on. Check out his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine.

His brother Terrell, however, is a solid safety prospect. He's a very good athlete and fills a huge position of need. #Steelers #NFLDraft pic.twitter.com/rpihCaxn1v
Since Fichtner was in Oklahoma for the Sooners’ workout, he simply stayed put for the Oklahoma State pro day.

Fichtner wasn’t the only person at the Oklahoma State Pro Day. Colbert and Tomlin, fresh off the Virginia Tech Pro Day the week before, made it to the event and spent some extra time talking to quarterback Mason Rudolph after the workout.
