Steelers Have Visit Scheduled With CB Tavon Young

Temple is holding their Pro Day today and we learned the Pittsburgh Steelers have their eye on at least one owl. Cornerback Tavon Young has a visit scheduled with the team, according to Eagles Wire’s Turron Davenport.

One of the short corners the team gravitates towards, Young is 5’9 and I’m sure that will anger many of you, he ran a 4.46 40 at the Combine while jumping 34.5 inches in the vertical and 9’10” in the broad. His agility times were both top five for his group.┬áHe also attended the Senior Bowl where the Steelers were able to get a look at him.

While he failed to pick off a pass in 2015, he plucked four of them his junior year, and was regarded as the team’s best cover corner.

Assuming this is an on-site visit, and sometimes they’re not, Young is the second known pre-draft visit for Pittsburgh. We previously learned safety Jayron Kearse has one scheduled.

    Good to know. These 2 are likely 4th and beyond prospects

  • vasteeler

    right in line with their traditional late rd corner prospects

    temple would that be considered local and not count for the offical # or is temple too far

    What’s with these CBs not having INTs last year? Seems like an all-time high lol. Enjoyed watching him at Senior Bowl week. He’s considered a 3rd rd pick?

  • Steve Johnson

    5’9 / 178LBS? Hmm! That sounds about right.

  • Durango Snowman

    Alex I’d love it if you could throw in a line for prospective round when you talk about these guys. Its the one thing I scan down for to see if it someone I should be getting excited about

  • 58Steel

    Does he have to do everything for us? Lol

  • Alex Kozora

    He is projected 5th round pick by NFL Draft Scout.

    all part of the glamour of being a professional blogger. Plus projecting anything past the third round is so hypothetical as to fall into the science fiction category of writing.

  • Timothy Rea

    Pffff… I’m sure they can find someone even shorter to play DB. Lets shoot for the ground and see if warwick davis can suit up.

  • dwsteelers

    We don’t have a 5th round pick do we?

  • Alex Kozora

    Correct.
