Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert was back on the road Tuesday, as he was one of the talent evaluators in attendance at North Carolina practice.
Tar Heels head coach Mack Brown thanked Colbert on Twitter for dropping by.
North Carolina’s most notable draft prospect is quarterback Sam Howell, who is regarded as one of the best in the country.
Howell has passed for 7,787 yards, 72 touchdowns and 17 interceptions over his Tar Heel career.
Regardless of how the 2021 season pans out, the Steelers could very likely be in the market for a quarterback come April’s draft given Ben Roethlisberger’s advanced age.
