With the draft less than a month away, the Steelers have been bringing in a steady stream of prospects into the facility for visits so they can can get a better idea of the kinds of players and people they might be drafting. Here is the list of players who will be coming to the facility on Thursday.
Visiting today are Alabama ILB Dont'a Hightower, Oregon RB LaMichael James, Oregon TE David Paulson, Midwestern St. G Amini Silatolu— Steelers Digest (@SteelersDigest) April 12, 2012
We know all about the Steelers and Dont'a Hightower, so the most interesting name on that list is probably Oregon running back LaMichael James. James is a scat back to the highest degree and could add a new dimension to the Steelers offense. He is getting compared to Saints running back Darren Sproles a lot in pre-draft projections, and the Steelers could benefit from a presence like that.
Paulson and Silatolu are potentially later-round selections.
