The Pittsburgh Steelers have brought in a variety of prospects as pre-draft visitors. Most importantly, they have been players projected at different levels of the draft, which makes for interesting fodder for mock drafts as the NFL Draft approaches.Minnesota safety Brock Vereen.
The first-team All-Big 10 selection is a solid athlete and leader with high football acumen. At 6-0, 199-pounds, he may not have elite size, but he plays with a sound combination of speed and quickness, which allows him to make plays both in a base defense and on special teams.
Although he has 4.47-timed speed, he lacks the coverage ability outside as a cornerback and possibly the physicality for safety. Couple that with uneven hands, and it is easy to see why he shows up as a Day Three prospect on many draft boards. With that, he could be a solid addition for the Steelers late in the draft as they attempt to retool their roster.
