Final: Pre-Draft Visits + Pro Day Dinners Speculation

Looks like the Kahn Artist held mostly true to the Steelers draft process, with just a little bit of trading dust magic sprinkled around to great effect.

My first post , and the Update to revise the pre-draft visitor list the Steelers changed in mid-stream ( ), tried to show the Steelers best draft predictor has proven to be their Pre-Draft Visitor list.

Including this year, that means fifty-four (54) of their ninety-seven (97) available picks between 2009-2023 have been from that visitor list, including six (6) standalone Pro Day dinners. A total of (55.7%). From that list, the Steelers have also signed fourteen (14) UDFAs and sixteen (16) FAs who were drafted by other teams and re-engaged by the Steelers.

NOTE: The 2021-2022 COVID years are excluded. No face-to-face meetings and very little reporting on private ZOOM interviews.

The 4 pre-draft visitors from 2023 list:

> OT Broderick Jones

> CB Joey Porter Jr

> DL Keeanu Benton

>TE Darnell Washington

What a draft!!!!
