For NFL and Pittsburgh Steelers fans, the 2012 NFL Draft is almost here. Teams have their draft boards ready, pundits have the mock drafts on record (Steelers101 will post our final First Round Thursday at 6P.M.), and fans have dissected who they believe the picks should be, who is the best player for their team, and are preparing to crucify the general manager or head coach when the go a different direction with their selection.

To assist Steelers fans with their draft preparations, we have profiled all 30 pre-draft visitors plus added a few other prospects that would possibly look good in the future. This was a time consuming, but fun process and we are happy to share this information. How many of these will be drafted or signed by the Steelers? History under Kevin Colbert has shown that roughly four per season is average. So the list should see some action this weekend. Below is the entire list of 36 prospects we have profiled with the dates write-up was completed and their name hyperlinked to their profiles. Please, use this as a reference throughout the draft process (or even after), and sound off on how we did @Steelers_101 on twitter or at our facebook page.
