The Pittsburgh Steelers had two more players in for pre draft visits on Thursday as Nebraska edge rusher Randy Gregory and Michigan wide receiver Devin Gardner are both in town talking with the organization.

Both visits have been rumored for the past few weeks. Teams in the mid to later part of the first round have been anxious to talk to Gregory following the news of his marijuana use, potentially lowering his draft stock. The former Cornhusker is a two year starter who recorded ten tackles for loss and seven sacks in 2014. He has a thin build and questions exist about his ability to play the run.
Gardner, who measures in at 6-3, 218 pounds, is converting to wide receiver after playing quarterback at Michigan. He ran a 4.62 40 at Michigan’s Pro Day. At Michigan, Gardner struggled in 2014, throwing 15 interceptions to only ten touchdowns. A dual-threat, he rushed for 24 touchdowns during his career. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him change positions at the next level, similar to what is expected of Tyler Murphy, who was brought in for a visit last week.
