TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — On a morning where every NFL team headed down to Tuscaloosa to watch Alabama Crimson Tide prospects participate in Pro Day, the Pittsburgh Steelers were no exception.
Pittsburgh sent three people down to Tuscaloosa, most notably general manager Kevin Colbert. Colbert was joined by longtime team scout Mike Gorscak and defensive backs coach Grady Brown.
Brown’s appearance at Pro Day was particularly interesting with only one defensive back workout out on the day for the Tide. Cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis was the only player under Brown’s purview who participated in drills.
The Mobile, Alabama native has been with the Crimson Tide since 2018, recording three interceptions in the 2021 season and a career-high 32 tackles and 22 solo tackles.
Wide receiver Slade Bolden, linebacker Christian Harris, defensive tackle Phil Mathis, offensive tackle Evan Neal, offensive lineman Chris Owens, defensive lineman LaBryan Ray, running back Brian Robinson and defensive back Daniel Wright also participated in the session at Alabama’s practice facility.
The Steelers spent their first round draft pick on an Alabama product last season, drafting running back Najee Harris at No. 24 overall. It was the third time in the last four seasons Pittsburgh has drafted an Alabama player with Harris joining defensive tackles Isaiah Buggs (2019) and Joshua Frazier (2018).
The pro day is the fourth in three days for Colbert. He was at NC State on Tuesday and Duke and North Carolina on Monday. to see quarterback prospect Sam Howell. Head coach Mike Tomlin, who had been joining him at most pro days this season, was in Florida for the NFL meetings, because he serves on the competition committee. Those meetings wrapped up on Tuesday.
