Darqueze Dennard (CB, Michigan State) Stephon Tuitt (DE, Notre Dame) are visiting @Steelers today.This is hardly the first time either Stephon Tuitt and Darqueze Dennard names have been mentioned in association with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

- Dennard is an obvious first rounder and has been listed as one of the players the Steelers will not pass on if available at 15 during the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft.
- The Steelers need on defensive line is equally well documented.
Stephon Tuitt at one point had been projected as a first round pick, but has draft stock has dropped due to a foot injury.
As Dale Lolley pointed out, the Steelers could benefit from this in the same way the benefitted from a sports hernia that limited Heath Miller’s activity prior to the 2005 NFL Draft – where Bill Cowher and Kevin Colbert selected Miller with the 30th overall pick.
