As expected, the Pittsburgh Steelers are entertaining several more pre-draft visitors on Wednesday and the list includes three defensive backs and an offensive lineman.

According to Bob Labriola, UCLU offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch, Florida safety Keanu Neal, Boise State safety Darian Thompson, and Temple cornerback Tavon Young are all in Pittsburgh visiting with the team.

Benenoch, as we previously reported, is an athletic offensive lineman who played both tackle and guard at UCLA. Many analysts have him pegged as a later-round selection.

Neal and Thompson are both highly-rated safety prospects in this year’s class who the Steelers have reportedly showed some interest in already during the pre-draft process. Both are expected to be drafted somewhere in the first three rounds of this month’s draft and several have speculated that Neal might ultimately be a late first-round selection.

After a poor showing at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine, Thompson had a better showing at his March pro day in front of several members of the Steelers organization.

As for Young, an undersized cornerback, he’s likely to hear his name called somewhere during the later rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft after registering 7 interceptions during his four seasons at Temple.
