Despite this being the official start to free agency, the NFL never slows down when it comes to preparing for the NFL draft. Proof of that is seeing Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert at the University of Georgia pro day on Wednesday.

In the pic above we see Tomlin and Colbert keeping a close eye on Georgia edge rusher Azeez Ojulari. The Steelers have a definite need at the position with Bud Dupree leaving and Ojulari is one of the top edge rushers in the draft.

The rub with drafting Ojulari would mean it likely costs the Steelers their first-round pick. Pittsburgh has multiple needs including edge rusher but also spots on the offensive line and at inside linebacker. Pittsburgh has Alex Highsmith in line to start along with T.J. Watt but depth is a concern. However, in a year when the Steelers need to draft guys who can start right away, it might be best to pass on an edge rusher in the first round.
