Steelers Host Five More Players For Pre-Draft Visits On Thursday

The Pittsburgh Steelers are entertaining five more pre-draft visitors on Thursday and that list of players includes three defensive and two offensive players.

According to Bob Labriola of steelers.com, Florida linebacker Jarrad Davis, Washington safety Budda Baker, North Carolina State safety Josh Jones, Pittsburgh running back James Conner, and Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin are all in town visiting with the team on Thursday.

Davis, who measured in at the combine at 6013, 238-pounds, registered 205 total tackles at Florida in addition to 5.5 sacks, 10 defensed passes, one interception and two forced fumbles. The Steelers recently attended his pro day and he’s likely to be selected in the first two rounds.

Baker, who measured in at the combine at 5095, 195-pounds, recorded 200 total tackles during his college career to go along with four sacks, five interceptions and 24 pass breakups. Like Davis, Baker is expected to be selected somewhere in the first two rounds.

Jones, another safety, measured in at the combine at 6013, 220-pounds. He registered 229 total tackles during his college career in addition to eight interceptions, 25 pass breakups, 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble. Jones is viewed by many draft analysts as day-two prospect.

Godwin, who measures in at 6010, 209-pounds, caught 154 passes for 2,421 yards and 18 touchdowns during his college career. Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley was present at Godwin’s pro day and the wide receiver is expected to be selected during the second day of the draft.

Conner, who probably doesn’t need much of an introduction if you follow Pittsburgh sports, rushed for 3,733 yards and 52 touchdowns during his college career that was interrupted by his six-month battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Conner, who measured in at the combine at 6014, 233-pounds, is expected to be drafted somewhere during day-three. He is considered a local prospect and thus won’t count against the Steelers 30 allotted pre-draft visitors.
