Steelers Hosting Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk, Mississippi WR Donte Moncrief For Pre Draft Visits

The Pittsburgh Steelers have already scheduled several players for pre draft visits and now we are starting to hear about some of those visits actually taking place.

On Tuesday, Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest reports that Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk and Mississippi wide receiver Donte Moncrief are both in Pittsburgh visiting with the Steelers.

Seastrunk rushed for 1177 yards and 11 touchdowns on 158 attempts last season and many view him as a third or fourth round selection.

Moncrief, who many believe will be drafted in the second or third round, caught 59 passes for 938 yards and six touchdowns last season.

The Steelers are allowed 30 out-of-area pre draft visitors prior to draft day.

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

    If we draft a RB in the 3rd or 4th round this year … heads should roll !!

  • srdan

    unless he is an exceptional KR, better than LB

  • taztroy43

    We should draft dri archer in the 5th! We already have blunt…so a high pick on a rb is out of the question imo….

  • Tanner Blackman

    We only have running backs with initials LB

  • shawn

    i like archer … 5th comp pick it is !

    Hey, Dave. If the “Steelers are allowed 30 out of area pre draft visits”, could you please let us know what technically is considered inside their area. And I am assuming that there is no limit to visits of athletes in their area. so what am I getting at? Which universities would be within the area?

  • Blue

    Mike Evans will fall into our lap

  • Ernest

    I was wondering the same thing? Is it based by radial distance or state?

  • SumnerYoung

    The Belldozer and the Blountdozer. We need to add some lightning to that two-headed thunder monster!!

    I really like this Seastrunk kid, but he doesn’t have any added versatility, not much receiving or kick return experience

    Interesting, thanks. The bigger the Metro area, the better. The bigger the population the better.

    Anyway, what I find interesting is the fact that the Steelers since last year have been drafting an inordinate amount of captains, or students that have done very well in their studies. Add to that they seem to be shying away from any player who has a checkered past. I noticed that last year. That’s something that we should consider in how they make their selections in the draft this year.

    Just got this done on a mock simulator:

    1.20 – CB,Kyle Fuller (trade back)
    1.29 – WR,Kelvin Benjamin (trade up)
    3rdC – DT,Daquan Jones
    4th – ILB,Yawin Smallwood
    5th – DE,Brent Urban
    5thC – CB,Aaron Colvin
    6th – TE,Xavier Grimble
    6thC – WR,Jalen Saunders
    7th – OLB Aaron Lynch.

    Evans, Gilbert, and Dennard were gone at 15. I used the extra 3rd round pick from the trade back plus our 2.46 to move back into first round. Not exactly sure about the prospect rankings, I think they used cbssports but it would be nice if it turned out like that.

    If these draft picks would turn out, I’d be a happy man. I’m not a big fan of Jones in the 3rd round, but everything else there would help them considerably in 2014.

  • blackandgoldBullion

    Ernest , you’re thinking along the same lines as me. Trading down with the 49ers might be the best option as they have no use for all the 12 picks they currently have. I would come up with several different players, but the 1st 2 would be great, and I also would like Colvin, as he could be a 2015 starter. By then the Steelers would probably be much closer to at least a playoff caliber team.

    Ernest, interesting…….. Was Ebron available at 15?

  • tcirish53@gmail.com

    Hey, Bill we need to draft a TRUE NT this year and Jones fits the bill with his size/strength even though he was more of a 4-3 DT in college. Shift McClendon to DE and our DL problems (at least for starting DL) are fixed.

    I dont remember but I was going based on the draft needs poll. I tried to play a delicate balance in what everyone feels as needs with BPA. CB was top priority followed by WR so I went with those positions first.

    I know the Steelers need to be ready for multiple scenarios, but Moncrief (to me) is one of those “best of the rest” type of guys, and (personally), I hope this team gets someone ranked at Jordan Matthews’ level or higher.

  • WIINGY

    I’m beginning to think this is wishful thinking, but I hope he falls in our lap.

    I almost love your mock. The biggest changes that i would make would be to keep the 3rd rd pick that you acquired by trade. Then I would also try to trade back in the 2nd rd as well and take Moncrief. IMHO, ( Moncrief + a 3rd rd pick + a 4th rd pick ) > Benjamin. We might land C.J. Fiedorowicz or Dri Archer or Shayne Shov with one of those extra picks.

    Although, the thought of having Benjamin in the Red Zone does make me salivate a little.

    I’ve watched both Matthews and Moncrief play for the past several years. Matthews, IMHO, is one of the safest options at WR in this draft. He join almost any NFL team and start as the #2 WR from day one. And he would probably still be your #2 WR in 8 years. He would be a perfect compliment to AB.

    Moncrief, on the other hand, if more likely to start out as the #3 WR on any team. But after 2 seasons, I see him vying for the #1 spot. He has a bit more upside than Matthews because of his ability to make people miss in open field, but he will require a bit more coaching than Matthews.

    They both have good hands, good speed, and good length. I’d love for either one of them to suit up in black and gold.
