We’ve known for a few weeks now that Nebraska edge rusher Randy Gregory will be coming to Pittsburgh for a pre-draft visit and now we know when.
Rand Getlin reports Saturday afternoon that Gregory, who is considered one of the best edge pass rushers available in this year’s draft, and a top 15 prospect, will be visiting with the Pittsburgh Steelers next week.
Gregory, who tested positive for marijuana at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine, measures in at 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds. He’s long and explosive and registered 54 tackles in 2014 including a team-high seven sacks for 67 yards. Gregory was also third on the team with 10 tackles for loss and led the Nebraska with 16 quarterback hurries.
Several 4-3 teams are likely interested in Gregory as an end in addition to 3-4 teams like the Steelers, who would convert the edge rusher to an outside linebacker.
