Steelers host Valdosta State defensive back Stephen Denmark on pre-draft visit Tuesday

The Steelers welcomed one of their last pre-draft visitors of the offseason to Pittsburgh on Tuesday, their 29th out of town guest of the year.

The Pittsburgh Steelers hosted only one pre-draft visitor to team facilities on Tuesday, welcoming Valdosta State defensive back to the Steel City to meet with the coaching staff.

Measuring in at just over 6-foot-2 and 220 at his pro day, Denmark has the size that NFL teams are sure to covet, but coming from a Division II program is sure to hurt his stock around the league. That being said, his athleticism is hard to ignore.

A former wide receiver converted to cornerback, it seems fair to assume that the young prospect still has much to learn about playing in the secondary. He recorded 55 tackles and three interceptions during his final season at college. Generally seen as a late round prospect or priority free agent signing, his size and potential should encourage someone to take a chance on him in Round 7.

The Steelers have now officially used 29 of their 30 allocated visits, with Dravon Askew-Henry, David Long and Miles Sanders all considered local visitors who do not count against their allowance.
