Steelers GM Kevin Colbert Expected at Four More Pro Days



Steelers GM Kevin Colbert, Mike Tomlin at Pitt Pro Days

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin have been to a combined eight pro days so far and plans to travel to at least four more, Colbert said on Sunday.

Speaking with members of the Pittsburgh media via conference call, Colbert said that the team’s need for a future franchise quarterback has prompted some of the team’s travels, but that he and Tomlin enjoy getting to see the prospects they may draft in person.

“I like to work,” Tomlin said via Brooke Pryor of ESPN. “I’d rather be out beating the bushes than be behind a desk.”

Colbert and Tomlin were sighted together at the pro days for Cincinnati, Clemson, Georgia, Liberty, Michigan, Ole Miss and Pitt. Colbert was seen at Notre Dame.

Tomlin said that he won’t be at North Carolina’s pro day on Monday to see Tar Heels quarterback Sam Howell, though it sounds as if Colbert may be there. That would nearly complete the team’s tour of the top quarterback pro days, after seeing Desmond Ridder (Cincinnati), Malik Willis (Liberty), Matt Corral (Ole Miss) and Kenny Pickett (Pitt).

The Steelers also saw Howell, Pickett, Ridder, Willis, Nevada’s Carson Strong and Western Kentucky’s Bailey Zappe at the Senior Bowl

The Pittsburgh brass should also be expected at the Alabama pro day March 30 and LSU on April 6. They could also be at the West Virginia pro day on Tuesday, though the Mountaineers lack top draft prospects in this year’s class.
