Some of the star power in the upcoming draft and players with checkered college seasons in 2009 are paying a visit to the Steelers today.
The five players include two big-name wide receivers, Notre Dame's Golden Tate and Oklahoma State's Dez Bryant. Also at their facility today is Oregon running back LaGarrette Blount. Blount was suspended by his team for much of last season for punching an opponent and Bryant was suspended by the NCAA for having a relationship with an agent and he played in only three games.
The two other visitors are linebackers, Koa Misi of Utah and Adrian Tracy of William & Mary.
That brings to 19 the number of players who have visited the Steelers over the past two weeks. The team can have up to 30 visits by April 14.
