Report: Tomlin, Colbert Attend University Of Florida Pro Day

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) - When an NFL head coach or a general manager attend a college Pro Day, that usually means there's a player the team is very interested in, but when both attend, you can just about be certain there is a player at the school the team wants.

According to reports, that was the case with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the University of Florida Pro Day this week as both Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert were in attendance.

As Kirk Larrabee of 247Sports.com writes, the Steelers' head coach and GM were amongst many NFL personnel taking in Florida's Pro Day.

Florida has one of the top players in this year's draft in edge rusher Dante Fowler Jr.

Larrabbe writes though that another Florida draft prospect, running back Matt Jones, has a meeting set up with the Steelers' staff, so it's more likely that he's the player the Steelers are most interested in.
