The Pro Days are still in full swing and after he gets done with the annual NFL owners’ meetings in Orlando, FL this week, Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert will be back on the circuit checking out draft prospects firsthand.
According to Steelers communications coordinator Burt Lauten, Colbert said he plans to go to Duke, Texas A&M and North Carolina this coming week.
While at Duke, Colbert will likely have an eye on cornerback Ross Cockrell, who is projected as a fifth or sixth-round prospect. At the North Carolina Pro Day, Colbert will be getting another good look at tight end Eric Ebron and quite possibly defensive end Kareem Martin, who many believe could make the jump to outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense.
Being as Texas A&M has already had their Pro day, Colbert will likely be taking in the personal pro day of quarterback Johnny Manziel on Thursday. One would think that Manziel will be throwing to Mike Evans during that workout, so that’s another reason Colbert might be heading that way.
