The college pro day schedule is almost at an end for 2019, with only a handful of teams still left to hold their events this year. Thanks to the annual owners meeting, both Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert were unavailable for some of the pro days held last week, but that did not limited the number of events that members of the Pittsburgh Steelers attended.

Wide receivers coach Darryl Drake was the man of the ground for the Steelers at the Arizona State pro day on Wednesday, seen talking on the sidelines with N’Keal Harry.

According to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst, offensive coordinator Randy Fitchner was among the names in attendance for the Memphis pro day.

“Running backs coaches from the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens were on hand for Memphis’ pro day, and so too was Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Randy Fitchner.”

The Steelers also had a scout on hand to watch the workouts at Maryland, with Pauline suggesting Pittsburgh continues to show interest in Darnell Savage.

“The New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers are showing a lot of interest in Savage, who will be a top-75 choice.”

“While I understand the Panthers’ interest, as I previously posted the team will load up on safeties in the draft, the interest from the Jets and Steelers surprised me. The Steelers took a safety in the first round last year, while the Jets took two safeties in the top 40 picks in 2017. I was later told the belief is that Savage could transition to cornerback, so the interest from the Steelers and Jets made more sense in that light.”

And another in attendance for the UCF pro day on Tuesday.

Safety Terrell Edmunds was among the former alumni taking in the sights of the Virginia Tech pro day on Friday.

With Washington cornerback Byron Murphy set to have his pro day on Monday, it should be expected that the Steelers will have a significant presence on hand to watch his workout if he really is in play for them in the first-round. The final pro day events of the offseason will be held on Thursday at Eastern Washington and Stanford.
