The football world has descended on Mobile, Alabama for the Senior Bowl this week, with several members of the Pittsburgh Steelers already noted in attendance. Used as much as an opportunity to met with players as it is to watch them work, it should be expected that the Steelers will interview several draft prospects throughout the course of the week.
Unfortunately, given that most of these meetings will take place behind close doors and Pittsburgh will never confirm the names they met with, we are left looking for insights from media members on site sharing information told to them by players or their agent. The first of those emerging on Wednesday.
LSU tight end Foster Moreau grabbed by the #Steelers for an interview. He's impressed down here.— Matt Verderame (@MattVerderame) January 23, 2019
Considered more of an asset as a blocker than a pass catcher, Foster Moreau recorded just 22 receptions for 272 yards during his senior season, finishing his career at LSU with 52 receptions for 629 yards and six touchdowns. Projected to be a Day 3 draft selection, the young prospect is commended by scouts his work ethic and physicality, but appears to be downgraded for his lack of athleticism and abilities as a receiver.
With Jesse James set to be a free agent in 2019 and Xavier Grimble a restricted free agent, there is a good chance the Steelers will be looking to add at least one new tight end to the roster via the draft or free agency this offseason.
