Ohio State CB Bradley Roby Has A Pre Draft Visit Scheduled With Steelers


The Pittsburgh Steelers are doing their due diligence when it comes to looking at the top-rated cornerbacks in this year’s draft class and now we know of yet another one that will be making a pre draft visit.

Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby said Monday evening in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he has an upcoming visit scheduled with the Steelers.

“I have 8 visits set up. I will be meeting with the Chargers, Steelers, Titans, Bills and Jets this week,” said Roby.

Roby measured in at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine at just over 5’11” and weighed 194 pounds. He ran a 4.39 forty-yard dash in Indianapolis and also recorded a 38.5″ vertical jump.

In 2013, Roby played in 12 games, but was suspended for first game of season due to being arrested and charged with battery. He was also ejected from Iowa game for “targeting.”

In 36 games played in at Ohio State, Roby registered eight interceptions and 180 total tackles of which 133 were of the solo variety. He was also credited with 13 pass breakups in 2013.

About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • Steve

    No thanks

  • shawn

    agreed !

  • shawn

    He sure has fallen … wasn’t he a top prospect a year or so ago !

  • Steve

    As a UM fan I watched a lot of big ten football, even OSU and he should be no more than a 3rd and I still wouldn’t take him

  • DoctorNoah

    We only have one pick in the first round, people. We are going to have to find skill and depth in later rounds. This guy’s character red flags don’t bother me much given the overall immaturity of players coming out of college. I will remind you that my issue with Mike Adams is not his smoking pot but that his technique is friggin’ awful.

  • RW

    Yep. Gotta hit on a sure thing in the first this year. Same situation heading into the Pouncey year – needed to stabilize the interior of the o-line. This year we need to stabilize the back end of the defense and the D-line.

  • Matt Manzo

    Him and Andre Hall! (CB Vanderbilt?) are the only CBs I wanna stay away from. They’re missing the eye of tiger, for me, in they’re film. They look a step behind all the time. I’m not smart enough to know if it can be taught?

  • Brian Tollini

    I think Roby is overrated because of his athletic abilities. He just does not stand out in tape from what I saw. Andre Hal on the other hand I think might be a good, late round draft pick.

  • Hard Row

    he doesn’t make enough plays for a guy with his athletic ability. He’d be a good 2nd rounder but a reach in Rd 1.

  • Johnny Loose

    I think being drafted by the Steelers and being in the right environment might help this kid mature. I’m a buckeye fan and I can tell you that as far as playing football is concerned, he has second round value. With the right coaching and mentoring, he could be a stud in the NFL. I know he comes with risk. Either way, if the Steelers grab him in the second round, I’ll be very excited. I don’t think he’ll make it to the end of the 3rd honestly. At least one team will bite before then I guarantee it. Hopefully Gilbert falls though and this becomes irrelevant.

  • Matt Manzo

    Late round for Hal I can see but not before 6.

  • cp72

    I played left tackle in high school. Dropping your head and stopping your feet were things I got my ass chewed about. He’s a professional and still making those mistakes.

  • Paddy

    A lot of OSU players come with baggage, I say not to this guy. Maybe Lebeau knows something

  • Jason

    As an OSU alum and a guy who watched every OSU snap this year I 100% agree. Good measurables, average player in my opinion.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Steelers will bring in guys with a “RISK” element for a pre draft visit to see if they are draftable. I wouldn’t put a lot into this.

  • Chad H

    I would not draft this head case. No thanks pass.

  • Ike Evans

    Please god….no

  • Steeldog22

    Watching here in Columbus, he hovered between toast and extra crispy all season.
