    Exclamation Cal LB Mychal kendricks to visit Steelers

    Cal linebacker Mychal Kendricks is scheduled to visit the Houston Texans, Pittsburgh Steelers, St. Louis Rams, Baltimore Ravens and the Atlanta Falcons this week, according to a league source.

    The 5-foot-11, 240-pound Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds at the NFL scouting combine.

    He also bench pressed 225 pounds 24 times, registered a 39 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 10-7 broad jump and a 4.19 in the 20-yard shuttle.

    He has drawn second-round grades from draft analysts.

    At his campus Pro Day workout, he improved his 20-yard shuttle to 4.14 seconds and posted a 6.68 three-cone drill.

    Kendricks' father was a running back at UCLA who led the Bruins in rushing twice.

    Kendricks recorded 106 tackles, 14 1/2 for losses, one sack, a forced fumble, an interception returned for a touchdown and two fumble recoveries.

    A three-year starter, Kendricks has dealt with shoulder and thumb injuries in the past.

    For his career, the all-conference linebacker had 258 tackles, 36 1/2 for losses, 13 1/2 sacks, seven fumble recoveries, four interceptions, five pass deflections and a blocked punt.

    As a junior, Kendricks was a second-team All-Pac 12 selection.

    Fine
    I like this guy however he might not be there in the second. Perhaps a move down to pick up a early 2nd & 3rd may be in order.

    I just read a mock draft on profootballtalk.com that has the Steelers taking a tightend with their first pick......no way do i see that happening, we have much greater needs that should be adressed with that first pick
    There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

    We would let him pass us up??

    he has 32. Giants picking: Luke Kuechly, linebacker, Boston College.

    Kuechly drops because inside ‘backers are devalued in the NFL.

    I think you are correct. I don't see us selecting a TE at #1.

    Could DeCastro fall to #24? Thoughts?

    I'm thinking more that we may just trade down.....and I would be just fine with that.

    Our strategy will strictly be dictated by the flow of the 23 picks ahead of us. Fortunately, being a successful team means picking late in the first round a lot. Our experience here is significant as the draft unfolds.

    Nobody had the Steelers taking Heath Miller back in 2005 and that worked out pretty well. However I would say it's a pretty safe assumption there's no way on God's green earth that we do TE in round one. LOL.

    This whole thing of the Steelers going Safety early on seems to be gaining a bit of a head of steam too...

    Houston would be a good fit for him I would think though, Kendricks that is
