Kevin Colbert’s Pro Day tour continues. Wednesday’s stop is Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where Colbert and the rest of the NFL have gathered to watch the training of several Crimson Tide prospects.

Alabama once again has some of the best prospects in the class this year. The first player to come off the board is OT Evan Neal, a likely top five roster this year. They also have some fast receivers in Jameson Williams and John Metchie III, although both players have recently torn ACLs. ESPN’s Adam Schefter Notes While Williams Won’t Train Today, He Is making good progress in his rehabilitation and recovery.
Inside linebacker Christian Harris is one of the most athletic off-ball players in its class, while DL Phidarian Mathis broke out in 2021 fitting in the form of a Steelers defensive lineman. Subsequent prospects include CB Josh Jobe, RB Brian Robinson Jr. and EDGE Christopher Allen. It seems unlikely that Jobe and Allen will train today due to an injury.
It’s unclear if Mike Tomlin has joined Colbert for Pro Day practice, though it wouldn’t be a surprise if he did. The Steelers probably have other assistant coaches coming along. We will update this post if and when we find those individuals. We’ve already seen South Scout Mark Gorscak. DB Coach Grady Brown was also present to see how the different Alabama DBs go through exercises. Brown himself did not let the DBs run through their workouts.
Today marks the fourth Pro Day that Colbert has attended this week. He started things by going to North Carolina and Duke on Monday and visited NC State yesterday. Colbert is as active on the Pro Day track as ever. This will be his last year as GM of Steelers and he clearly doesn’t turn down a chance to scout.
