Head Coach Mike Tomlin and director of operations Kevin among those in attendance for Ohio State’s Pro Day last week. Could the Steelers be looking at another wide out from Ohio State?
Mike Tomlin has attended two pro days this year, West Virginia’s and Ohio State’s. Last Friday Tomlin, Colbert and Dick Lebeau were all in attendance for Ohio State’s workout.
The player who garnered the most attention as a potential second round pick was wide receiver Brian Robiskie. At 6-2, 209, Robiskie ran forty times of 4.52 and 4.54. He also performed very well in drills.
The Steelers love his understanding of the game and his ability to play physical. Despite his size, the Steelers see Robiskie as more of a potential long-term replacement for Hines Ward. Robiskie and North Carolina’s Hakeem Nicks are at the top of the Steelers wishlist. Nicks is projected to be a late first round – early second round pick. Robiskie is No. 9 in Buckeye history with 1,866 receiving yards
One under-the radar play I heard that caught the Steelers eye was cornerback Donald Washington (6-0, 200lbs). A very talented cornerback but is seen as a projection player who still needs to improve some areas of his game.
