Steelers' head coach Mike Tomlin and several of his coaches are making their rounds as they prepare for the upcoming NFL Draft. Thursday they are in attendance at the Missouri pro day to see Shane Ray.

Mike Tomlin and his coaching contingent are racking up the frequent flier miles. After spending the day yesterday in East Lansing, Michigan at Michigan State's pro day, the Pittsburgh Steelers' brass has now moved onto Missouri's pro day to get a glimpse, and meet with, pass rusher Shane Ray.

As the photo above depicts, Tomlin is accompanied by defensive coordinator Keith Butler, outside linebackers coach Joey Porter and general manager Kevin Colbert.

Ray is believed to be a top 15 draft pick, which would mean he would be off the board before the Steelers' selection at 22, but although the team rarely moves up in the draft, you can never put it past a NFL franchise if they truly believe the player is a can't-miss type of athlete.

UPDATE: Ray ran the 40-yard dash at the pro day, and was clocked around 4.5 seconds. Ray did not run any drills at this year's NFL Scouting Combine.
