Last 5 potential draft choices visit Steelers
Share with others:
The player who could be the Steelers' No. 1 pick in the NFL draft -- Memphis nose tackle Dontari Poe -- is among five players visiting the team today.
It is the last day draft prospects can meet with NFL teams.
Also visiting the Steelers are tight end Adrien Robinson of Cincinnati, offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum of Southern Methodist and wide receivers Toney Clemons of Colorado and Gregory Childs of Arkansas. Clemons played at Valley High School.
Poe, who is 6-foot-4, 346 pounds, elevated his draft stock after being a workout wonder at the scouting combine in Indianapolis. He ran a 4.98 in the 40-yard dash, did a combine-best 44 reps in the 225-pounds bench and had a 29 ??-inch vertical jump.
Poe can bench-press 500 pounds, squat 700 pounds and power-cleaning 400.
