The Pittsburgh Steelers are showing interest in another Ohio State Buckeye. I hope you were sitting down for that.
Though the specifics are unclear, Rand Getlin says the Steelers have met with safety Vonn Bell in some fashion.

Bell does not appear to be one of the four prospects reported to visit the team today, though it obviously doesn’t mean there can’t be a visit scheduled for the future.
A 28 game starter, Bell recorded 65 tackles, 2 interceptions, and a recovered fumble in 2015. His best year came in 2014 where he picked off six passes in 15 games. He was a First-Team All-American this season. Unable to work out at the Combine, he turned in a 4.51 40 and a 30.5 inch vertical at Ohio State’s Pro Day, according to NFL.com.
He is viewed as NFL Draft Scout’s #1 overall safety and projected to be a second round pick. Pittsburgh has taken a Buckeye in five of the last six drafts.
