Blidi Wreh-Wilson is paying a visit to the Pittsburgh Steelers today.

The General McLane graduate and former Connecticut cornerback is a highly rated player going into the NFL Draft April 25-27. Several websites reported his visit to the Steelers.

Some draft analysts project Wreh-Wilson being picked as early as the late first round. Others predict he will be a second-round or third-round pick.

Wreh-Wilson has been in demand leading up to the draft since his performance in the NFL Combine and UConn’s pro day.

The 6-foot 1-inch 195-pound has received attention for his size and cover skills, two factors that NFL teams covet in a cornerback.

The online reports also noted that Wreh-Wilson will visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
