2012 NFL Draft: Analyzing Pittsburgh Steelers Pre-Draft Visits and Mock Draft

With less than a week until draft day, the draft picture for the Pittsburgh Steelers is starting to become clear.

They concluded their pre-draft visits this week after bringing in over 30 prospects from around college football for a closer look.

Pittsburgh does not tip their hand when it comes to their pre-draft visits, but they come pretty darn close.

Last year, the Steelers had visits with four of their draft picks and four of the undrafted free agents that they signed.

Marcus Gilbert (second), Curtis Brown (third), Cortez Allen (fourth) and Keith Williams (sixth) were all in Pittsburgh for a pre-draft visit, and three of them made the final roster.

Gilbert settled in as a starting tackle, and Allen was a contributor as a defensive back in passing packages while Brown made his mark on special teams.

Weslye Saunders, Corbin Bryant, Anthony Gray and Mario Harvey all signed with the Steelers after the draft, with Saunders making the squad as a backup tight end.

The 2010 pre-draft visits who were drafted included Maurkice Pouncey, Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown, while four players, none of which are still on the roster, were drafted in the fifth round or later.

If the Steelers continue this trend, expect three or four players brought into Pittsburgh for a pre-draft visit to be drafted with a number of others to sign after the draft.

Here is a position-by-position look at the Steelers' pre-draft visits.
