    Buzz up!








    The Steelers hosted two college prospects today, including West Virginia defensive tackle Keilen Dykes.
    Maryland defensive tackle Dre Moore also met with coaches and scouts on the first day teams are allowed to entertain players that are eligible for next month's NFL draft.
    NFL rules allow teams to meet individually with as many as 30 players prior to the draft.
    A first-team All-ACC selection last season, Moore (6-4, 305 pounds) led Maryland with six sacks.

    The 6-4, 295-pound Dykes had three sacks and four tackles for losses for the Mountaineers last season.

    NFLN mentioned this guy as a possibility for us and that the Steelers may be pretty high on Dykes at this point.

    Steelers welcome draft prospects

    The upcoming NFL Draft and offseason conditioning were the focus Monday at the Steelers' South Side facility.
    On a day when the Steelers started voluntary workouts for their returning players, the team also hosted a pair of college prospects, including West Virginia defensive tackle Keilen Dykes.

    In addition to Dykes, Maryland defensive tackle Dre Moore met with Steelers coaches and scouts.

    Yesterday was the first day that college players eligible for the draft are allowed to visit NFL teams.

    Teams are allowed to host as many as 30 players before the draft.
    Both interior lines are areas that the Steelers figure to target in the draft, which will be held April 26-27.

    They haven't attempted to upgrade either through free agency, as the team has only signed running back/kick returner Mewelde Moore and linebacker Keyaron Fox.

    Dre Moore is the more highly touted of the two prospects the Steelers met with Monday.
    The 6-foot-4, 305-pounder led Maryland with six sacks last season and was a first-team all-ACC selection.

    Dykes, who is 6-4, 295 pounds, had three sacks and four tackles for losses for the Mountaineers in 2007.

    I like Moore. He is sufficiently athletic enough to play End as well as a 4-3 Tackle. He MIGHT be there in the third round. Granted it would be te ealy third round but they could trade up since there are not many 34 Ends worth taking.
