Of the 24 players in this mock, only 5 have not visited/met with the Steelers (Warmack, Eifert, Hopkins,V. Williams, DiManche). They didn't "officially meet w/ Bailey but met w/ their QB(Geno Smith) who we all know the Steelers aren't interested in selecting.
In 2012 6 out of 9 draft choices met w/ the Steelers. Plus they signed A. Robinson as a UFA.
(DD, Adams, Clemons,Paulson,Beachum,Fredrick, Robinson) all visited.
In 2011 5 out of 7 draft choices met w/ the Steelers. Plus they signed C. Bryant & Saunders as a UFA
(Gilbert,C. Allen, C. Brown, Heyward,Saunders, K. Williams, C. Bryant) all visited.
The Steelers choose players that they have visited/met with either on their pro day, combine or visited PGH. 11 out of 16 draft picks the last 2 years.
Here are the players they have met w/ this year. A bunch will be Steelers come draft day.

I would take any RB on that list!
Not as many WRs as youd think. None of alot of peoples top cpl... Woods and Boyce being the highest.
vaccaro has off field issues
horrible and idiot for wanting an o-lineman in round 1
vaccaro doesnt have off field issues.
and cooper and warmack are top 5 players in the draft, it all depends who they pass on rather than who they take this draft but both guards would be welcomed additions
Keep these meetings in mind also.... not just scheduled meetings..
Mathieu and Mingo participated in positional drills and both impressed throughout the afternoon. Afterward, they were also popular in interviews as well, with the Honey Badger spending extensive time with Tomlin and several of the other NFL assistant coaches on campus. Mathieu is expected to be drafted sometime on the second day of the draft and Mingo is a likely first-round pick. Head coach Les Miles added that he wouldn't be surprised if Mingo is the "first defensive player off the board."
