Many fans and talking heads are linking the Steelers as a possibly landing spot for ex-Rams quarterback Marc Bulger, who was released yesterday, but the Bears makes much more sense. I do not think he will be signed by Pittsburgh.
The Steelers will entertain Iowa offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga for a pre draft visit today. Bulaga is 6-foot-5, 314 pounds, and primarily played left tackle, but did start five games at left guard as a freshman. That makes 14 visitors now to the South Side of the league allowed 30.
PFT has their mock draft up and color me unimpressed. I understand trying to be a little different, but quite a few of these picks make no sense. Silva has the Steelers drafting Kareem Jackson. I could see that, but more like in the 2nd round. Quite a few head scratchers, perhaps Silva is a drinker.

I little bit closer stab at a mock is the first one by Dale Lolley of the Washington Observer. Dale has the Steelers selecting Texas safety, Earl Thomas, which I could very well see happening. Although he does not add much reasoning on the other picks, it is a much more believable mock.
A police report states that the gun that Browns nose tackle Shaun Rogers allegedly tried to carry through airport security last Thursday was cocked and in safe mode with seven bullets in the magazine and one in the chamber. Rogers could be on the outs soon in Cleveland.
Continuing on with the Steelers.com segment of draft day memories, back up nose tackle Chris Hoke shares how his hopes of being drafted were crushed. Hoke was signed as an undrafted free agent instead.
