The Steelers brass of Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert have made their third visit to a pro day this year, as they were at the Auburn pro day today, along with wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard, according to Aditi Kinkwabwala of the NFL Network. Tomlin and Colbert were at Georgia's pro day yesterday and were at Clemson's pro day last week.

Auburn wide receiver Anthony Schwartz has met with the Steelers and has gone over concepts. Schwartz had 117 receptions for 1,433 yards (12.2 average) and six touchdowns in his career at Auburn. He also rushed for 323 yards on 42 carries (7.7 average) and seven touchdowns.

Schwartz has incredible speed and he displayed it at his pro day, running a stunning 4.26 in the 40-yard dash. Schwartz is projected to be a fourth or fifth-round pick in this year's draft, which seems like the perfect spot for the Steelers to add a speedy slot receiver. He would be a great fit in Matt Canada's offense with all the jet sweeps, motions and misdirections.

Below is a scouting report on Schwartz by The Draft Network.


"Anthony Schwartz has exceptional proactive athleticism, as evidenced by his quickness, body control, and balance. He's a willing stalk blocker but is better off running the defender off. In the passing game, he is a threat due to his explosive speed to threaten a defense before and after the ball arrives. He is a home-run threat and defenders must account for his dynamic ability in the slot. He displays some physical toughness for being a “track guy” and would be a matchup problem in the slot."
