The Pittsburgh Steelers are allowed to host as many as 30 out-of-town players for pre-draft visits in 2019, and it appears we may already know the name of at least one of those prospects if a report from Jared Tokarz is to be believed.

And with Notre Dame set to hold their pro day on Wednesday, it will be interesting to see which members of the Steelers organization are on hand to watch wide receiver Miles Boykin workout.

Pittsburgh also look set to meet with Kentucky defensive back Mike Edwards for what could be either a private workout or a pre-draft visit, according to a report from Justin Melo os SB Nation.

Tuesday saw Alabama open their doors to the NFL for their pro day event, with Steelers GM Kevin Colbert among a host of notable names in attendance.

As was defensive line coach Karl Dunbar.

Pittsburgh were one of 28 NFL teams with a representative at Temple’s pro day on Monday.

As per Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst, the Steelers wide receiver coach was on hand for the Toledo pro day on Tuesday.

“The Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Bucs, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers were four of the teams who had wide receiver coaches on hand for the workout. The receiver workout was run by Nick Caserio of the New England Patriots.”

And also reported that a Pittsburgh representative met with Louisiana Tech defensive lineman Immanuel Turner on Monday. As reported by Pauline.

“The team’s other defensive lineman, Immanuel Turner, also performed well, timing the 40 between 4.97 to 5.01 after weighing in at 309 pounds. Turner, who has 14 official pre-draft visits, met with the New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders today.”

According to veteran beat writer Jim Wexell of Steel City Insider, new defensive coach Teryl Austin workout out defensive backs Justin Layne, Khari Willis and Trayvon Mullen at the Michigan State Pro Day on Monday. Also reporting that Layne had met with Mike Tomlin at the NFL Scouting Combine a few weeks earlier. Willis apparently met Tomlin at the Senior Bowl and defensive backs coach Tom Bradley at the combine as well.

Wednesday should be a busy day for the Steelers with pro days events set to be held at Ohio State, Notre Dame, Georgia, USC and Pittsburgh among others.
