You didn’t think the Pittsburgh Steelers would only bring in defensive players for pre-draft visits, did you?
Well, if you did you were likely saddened on Monday when news broke of the players who were invited to the team’s headquarters for those awesome pre-draft visits.
Draft visitors for 4/9: RB Reggie Bonnafon. from Louisville; FB John David Moore from LSU; WR Richie James from Middle Tennessee State— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) April 9, 2018
Official Pre-Draft Visitor List:
Louisville RB Reggie Bonnafon
LSU FB John David Moore
Middle Tennessee State WR Richie James
The Steelers certainly brought in some playmakers on this most recent wave of prospect visits. Louisville running back Reggie Bonnafon and Middle Tennessee State wide receiver Richie James are certainly players to watch on Day 3 of the 2018 NFL Draft. Both positions, wide receiver and running back, could use depth and these two players would certainly fit the bill.
As for John David Moore, the Steelers are certainly not in the market for a full back, they just gave Roosevelt Nix a new contract this offseason, so, no. But they can always use special team demons, like Nix, who can make plays in all the different phases of the special teams game.
The Steelers now have hosted 13 players on pre-draft visits, and you can keep tabs with all official pre-draft visits with the BTSC Pre-Draft Visit Tracker.
