Steelers Host Toledo DT Treyvon Hester For Monday Pre-Draft Visit

The Pittsburgh Steelers are hosting one pre-draft visitor on Monday and it’s Toledo defensive tackle Treyvon Hester, according to Bob Labriola of steelers.com.

According to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst, the Steelers were one of several teams present recently to see Hester, who has now finally recovered from his December shoulder surgery, go through his workout. Hester was invited to this years scouting combine but unable to participate due to him still rehabbing.

Hester reportedly measures in at 6023, 304-pounds and registered a vertical jump of 31.5-inches at his recent workout in addition to running the 40-yard-dash between 4.86 and 4.91 seconds.

In the 48 games that Hester played in at Toledo he registered 161 total tackles and 13 sacks. He also forced four fumbles and defensed four passes.

Hester is considered a local product after playing his high school football at Penn Hills and thus won’t count against the Steelers 30 allotted pre-draft visitors.

    well Shade Tree you had your chance

  • Big Joe

    A true NT or one who can play one-gap penetrating in sub-package?

  • Conserv_58

    If the Steelers do draft a true NT like Hester, Daniel McCullers’ will most likely be a June 1 cut.

  • Conserv_58

    Yes he did and he’s not worth wasting anymore time on trying to get him to be what he’s incapable of being.

    What ever happened to Brad Kaaya? Thought he was in Pittsburgh.

  • falconsaftey43

    Why? What’s the harm in having him on the roster to compete? He’s a returning player from the 53 man roster, you don’t just cut those guys unless you’re sure you have someone better. Especially when he’s cheap.

  • SteelersDepot

    I speculate he visited on Saturday. We may never know.

    I like this guy, he would provide good competition for Big Dan who’s time in Pittsburgh appears to be running out. This guy also provides more pass rush then Big Dan which is much needed.

  • Steelers12

    Damn i had high hopes for him

  • LucasY59

    seems like a player similar to Hargrave and Alualu, I know McCullers doesnt play to the potential of his size, but I still like the idea of a big body that can plug up the running lanes if needed, so I would rather have a guy like Dan for depth at NT (same reason I like having VW as a ILB, I think the team needs a guy that can cover in the passing game, but having a enforcer type LB like Vince is very important as well)

  • Conserv_58

    The harm is the fact that he’s had three years to prove his worth and he still hasn’t achieved a starting role. Hargrave was better as a rookie than McCullers is after three years under coach Mitchell’s tutelage. Put Hargrave’s mind in McCullers cranium and then he’d be worth keeping around.

  • John Pennington

    Watch tape on this guy didn’t show much but the steelers will replace the shade tree and its to bad some people just dont want to play football and I think he is one.
