Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert have both been busy this week attending Pro Days and they’re reportedly ending the week together at the Ohio State annual pre draft event.

Wide receiver Devin Smith, defensive tackle Michael Bennett, cornerback Doran Grant and tight end Jeff Heuerman are the high-profile players working out on Friday and all four are expected to be drafted in the first four rounds of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Grant really fits the Steelers needs and he might be best-suited to play in the slot at the NFL level being as he is a bit undersized at 5’10”. He’s a physical corner that has shown willingness to come up and play the run. He recorded 64 total tackles and five interceptions in 2014
Heuerman is an underrated tight end prospect who dealt with a foot injury last season. He has good size and athletic ability but needs to work on his route running and blocking. Heuerman caught 43 passes for 673 yards and six touchdowns during his final two years at Ohio State. Many draftniks have him pegged as a fourth-round prospect that could sneak into the third round.
