The Pittsburgh Steelers have scouts at two big early games on Saturday’s college football slate.

Steelers scouts are in Columbus, Ohio to see the Ohio State Buckeyes host the Maryland Terrapins in Big Ten action and are also in Dallas, Texas to see the Red River Showdown between the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Both games are kicking off at noon. OSU-Maryland is on Fox, while Oklahoma-Texas is on ESPN.

Here are some of the top prospects that we expect to be in the 2024 NFL Draft from those teams that the Steelers could be interested in:

Ohio State

The Steelers love their Buckeyes and wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is a consensus top-five pick, and while the Steelers can dream, they probably won’t get their hands on him in the draft. His running mate, Emeka Egbuka isn’t a bad consolation prize. He’s 6-foot-1, 205 pounds and has averaged over 15 yards per catch in his collegiate career. Egbuka is a consensus first-round pick.

Defensive tackle Michael Hall Jr. is right now considered a likely second-round pick. At 6-foot-2, 290 pounds, he’s a bit short for a Steelers defensive end, but could add some weight and be an impact player at tackle. Hall is only a redshirt sophomore and could return to OSU for another year.

Denzel Burke is a three-year starter at cornerback for the Buckeyes, and while he doesn’t have elite ball skills (two career interceptions), he tied for fifth on the team with 34 tackles last season and broke up five passes. The Steelers obviously need to replenish their defensive secondary and Burke could be a solid day two option.

Steelers Beau Brade

Maryland Athletics


If the Steelers want to get younger at safety, Beau Brade could be a solid second-day option. A sure tackler, Brade also gets his hands on the ball. A starter for the first time in 2022, he has three picks and eight passes defended in his last 17 games to go along with 111 tackles.

Steelers Texas WR Xavier Worthy

Texas Athletics


Xavier Worthy is another head-turning wide receiver prospect who will likely go in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. A third-year starter, he already has 24 collegiate touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 170 pounder is a former track star.

Redshirt senior defensive tackle T’Vondre Sweat is a big, big boy at 6-foot-4, 340 pounds. He’s a projected day two pick that could help shore up the future of the Steelers defensive line.

Steelers OT Tyler Guyton

Oklahoma Athletics


If the Steelers want to continue to upgrade their offensive line with a tackle to pair with Broderick Jones, Tyler Guyton could be their guy. The 6-foot-6, 306-pounder transferred from TCU to Norman, Oklahoma in 2022 and is in his second season as a starter for the Sooner. He gave up just two hurries from his right tackle spot all of last season. Guyton is projected a second-round pick.
