2011 Draft

Steelers Mike Tomlin Present For Miami Hurricanes Pro Day

It should be no surprise that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is in South Florida today at the University of Miami Pro Day. Tomlin is for sure taking a closer look at cornerback Brandon Harris. Harris had a good showing at the NFL Combine recently and is certainly one of the top 5 corners in this years draft class. Harris most likely would contribute as a nickel corner first for any team that drafts him, with hopes of eventually moving outside. The Steelers most certainly will be in the market for one, if not two corners in the draft depending how free agency shakes out with Ike Taylor and William Gay.

Harris was not the only player the Steelers have their eye on down in Miami as senior offensive lineman Orlando Franklin has also talked to the Steelers over the past few days according to Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel. Franklin likely projects at guard at the next level and despite having underwent knee surgery 6 weeks before the combine, he did took part in most of the drills. Franklin is projected as an early to mid-round second round pick by most of the scouting services.

The Pro Day was shortened by storm showers and lightning in the area and UM has postponed the remainder of the Pro Day workouts until March 25 at 9 a.m. Eastern. Several players had just started their workouts and will have A chance to participate in any drills they had not already completed later in the month.
