Steelers Host SJSU TE Josh Oliver, LSU G Garrett Brumfield On Pre-Draft Visits Wednesday

The Pittsburgh Steelers hosted a few more players for pre-draft visits on Wednesday and included in the duo were San Jose State tight end Josh Oliver and LSU guard Garrett Brumfield, according to Bob Labriola of steelers.com.

Oliver, who measured in at this year’s scouting combine at 6045, 249-pounds with 33 1/2-inch arms and 10 3/4-inch hands, ran his 40-yard-dash in Indianapolis in 4.63-seconds. He did 22 reps on the bench at the combine and posted a vertical jump of 34-inches to go along with a 9’9″ broad jump. His short-shuttle time at the combine was 4.47-seconds and his 3-cone time was 7.21-seconds.

In the 48 games that Oliver played at San Jose State, he registered 98 receptions for 1,067 yards and 7 touchdowns. 26 of those receptions resulted in gains of 15 yards or more while 5 of those went for gains of 25 yards or more. He is expected to be a mid-round draft selection this year.

Brumfield measured in at his pro day at 6025, 289-pounds with 33-inch arms and 9 3/4-inch hands. He reportedly ran his 40-yard-dash in 5.11-seconds, did 24 reps on the bench and posted a vertical jump of 33-inches to go along with a broad jump of 9’4″. His short-shuttle time was 4.49-seconds while his 3-cone time was 7.59-seconds.

At LSU, Brumfield played in 45 total games and had 22 starts at left guard. He missed several games during the 2018 season because of a knee injury. If drafted this year, Brumfield will likely hear his name called in round 6 or 7.
