    Phil Loadholt and Joe Burnett visits Steelers

    2 more college prospects visit Steelers

    Two more college football prospects are visiting the Steelers today: offensive tackle Phil Loadholt of Oklahoma and cornerback Joe Burnett of Central Florida.

    Loadholt is 6-feet-8, 335 pounds. Burnett is 5-10, 192, and also returned kickoffs and punts for UCF.




    Seems like Mike Thomas visits Steelers too:

    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    loadholt could be a RT but honestly he looked way more like a mammoth guard.....we should just draft him and herman johnson and tell them to run straight forward on every play because when they block a guy, that guy is effectivley out of the play lol....the down side is they are very heavy footed and their footwork is very poor because it it and thats why they cant play tackle despite their tremendous size.

    i would be very pro mike thomas if they drafted him

    Oregon defensive tackle visiting Steelers

    Oregon defensive tackle Ra'Shon Harris is visiting the Steelers today as they continue to inspect college draft prospects.

    Harris, who is 6-feet-4, 300 pounds, started one season at Oregon and is considered a mid- to late-round draft choice. He is the fourth prospect to visit the Steelers in the past three days. They plan to have 30 prospects visit them at their South Side training complex, the maximum under NFL rules.

    Up until I saw they invited him in, I felt Phil was a "load," but I don't think they would waste a visit on a too fat, too slow prospect, since there are too many draftable players who fit the "Steeler profile."

    So, Loadholt could well be a B&G OL candidate. (Please replace Colon and move him to Guard.)

    I like Rashon Harris as a fourth or fifth round pick. He has the size to play DE and a year to learn from the current vets.

    I, too, like Mike Thomas, but the Steelers almost would have to spend a #2 on him, since I think he'll be gone at #96 in the third.

    Mike Thomas is on my list of WR's that I like in this draft....He can return kicks to so he has added value.....I like Burnett but I repeat once again I want nothing to do with Loadholt......
