Miami has several offensive players that figure to be drafted in the first three rounds and that list includes tackle Ereck Flowers, running back Duke Johnson, tight end Clive Walford and wide receiver Phillip Dorsett.
Of those offensive players, Walford could be the one the Steelers are most interested in. Last season, Walford, who many consider to be the second-best tight end in this year’s draft close behind Minnesota’s Maxx Williams, caught 44 passes for 676 yards and seven touchdowns. He figures to be selected in either the second or third round of the upcoming draft
Several Miami defensive players that figure to be drafted in the later rounds are also on display Wednesday and that list includes linebacker Denzel Perryman, defensive end Anthony Chickillo and cornerback Ladarius Gunter.
