Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert were not at the North Carolina pro day today to check out the running back duo of Javonte Williams and Michael Carter, but Steelers running backs coach Eddie Faulkner was in Chapel Hill, according to Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports.


Jones says Chris Grier of Miami and Martin Mayhew of Washington were the only two general managers in attendance at North Carolina's pro day. Faulkner, along with nine other running back coaches from different NFL teams were present to see Williams and Carter workout.

In the grand scheme of things, it probably doesn't mean much that Tomlin and Colbert were not at the North Carolina pro day, but it's worth noting that they were both at the Clemson pro day to see Travis Etienne workout and were at the first Alabama pro day, which Najee Harris didn't participate in, however. Harris is expected to work out at the second Alabama pro day, so it should be interesting if the duo of Tomlin and Colbert are in Tuscaloosa tomorrow.
