Steelers' next door 'neighbors' stop by for pre-draft visit

The Steelers had seven players who are accustomed to being in the building at their South Side offices today, but it wasn't any of their own.
Seven Pitt players who could be taken in the NFL draft went next door and visited with Coach Mike Tomlin and director of football operations Kevin Colbert.
The players were wide receiver Jon Baldwin, defensive ends Jabaal Sheard and Greg Romeus, fullback Henry Hynoski, running back Dion Lewis, offensive tackle Jason Pinkston and safety Dom DiCicco.
Because Pitt is a local team, those players do not count against the 30 prospects the Steelers are allowed to bring in before the draft.
Meantime, the team announced that Burt Lauten will serve as interim communications coordinator, replacing Dave Lockett, who left the team after 13 seasons.
