2 p.m.: Scout.com's Chris Steuber just informed me that the Steelers have scheduled a visit from Texas free safety prospect Earl Thomas, perhaps the best ball-hawking defensive back in this year's draft.
Last season, the 5-10, 208-pound safety intercepted eight passes and returned two for touchdowns, both school records. In 27 career starts, Thomas intercepted 10 passes. He left Texas after his redshirt sophomore season. Some analysts believe Thomas can also play cornerback in the NFL.
