According to our records, the Pittsburgh Steelers have yet to use all of their allotted pre-draft visits and because of that we fully expect a few more players will be brought to town at some point during this week.
One of those players might very well wind up being Virginia Tech cornerback Kendall Fuller as ESPN.com reporter Jeremy Fowler reports on Monday that travel logistics are still trying to be worked out.

Fuller, who registered 119 total tackles and 8 interceptions during his college career, was limited to playing in just three games in 2015 due to a right knee injury that ultimately required season-ending surgery. Fuller was still unable to workout at his March pro day due to his rehab still not being fully completed.
According to a report late last week by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Fuller’s recent medical re-check in Indianapolis went well and thus the expectation is that he’ll be ready for the start training camp, if not sooner.
Many draft analysts expect Fuller to ultimately be drafted somewhere in the second round and because that he could still be on the board come time for the Steelers to make their 58th overall selection.
The Steelers are expected to draft at least one cornerback in the early rounds of this year’s draft.
