With this year’s NFL draft a little more than two weeks away, the Steelers are doing some final work on a couple more quarterbacks.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Pittsburgh is hosting Nevada quarterback Carson Strong on Wednesday and Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral on Thursday for pre-draft visits.

While Corral’s visits have been well documented, this is the first reported visit for Strong. A three-year starter at Nevada, Strong set a program record with 36 touchdown passes in 2021. The Vacaville, Calif. native was named the Mountain West offensive player of the year in both 2020 and 2021.

Pittsburgh also reportedly met with Cincinnati quarterback Desmond Ridder and North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell last week.

After Ben Roethlisberger’s retirement, the Steelers signed quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to compete for the team’s starting role. But Trubisky’s presence clearly won’t prevent Pittsburgh from drafting another passer.

  1. Strong is not a starting NFL QB. Only guy we should consider trading up for is Willis and that is only if he falls past Seattle at 9. would be fine taking Corral Ridder or Pickett at 20. Everyone saying this class stinks, it does. There is a ton of potential though and one of these guys is going to be good

  2. I don’t think we should draft a qb even if Willis makes it past Seattle. Yeah he has good mobility but in my opinion with the level of competition the kid played against his stats should be alot better. I think we should give Tribisky a shot this season to see if he could handle being our qb I mean if he plays well why waste a 1st rd pick on a qb especially since we have pressing needs at other positions. If Tribisky doesn’t play well then we will most likely have a better 1st rd pick next year to pick a qb from what’s projected to be a better class for qb’s then this year.

  3. Strong is good. He’s a big guy who can make the throws.

    you obviously haven’t watched him. He is an inaccurate statue who has less movement skills than 2021 Big ben.
