With tackle Marcus Gilbert now entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2014 and fellow tackle Mike Adams still trying to develop into a starter, it looks like the Pittsburgh Steelers are indeed very open to drafting another tackle this year.
On Thursday, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported on Twitter that University of Miami tackle Seantrel Henderson has a pre draft visit set up with the Steelers.
Henderson, who measured in at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine at just over 6’7″, reportedly had a poor showing on Thursday at his Pro Day. Kelly also reports that Henderson was unable to finish his workout due him being dehydrated.
Many believe that Henderson will be drafted right around the fifth or sixth round come May and the Steelers were recently awarded a sixth round compensatory draft pick, so that’s worth noting.
