The Steelers hosted three more college draft prospects Friday: Arizona State outside linebacker Carl Bradford, Boston College outside linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis and Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby, the second Buckeyes player to visit in as many days.

Outside linebacker Ryan Shazier met with the Steelers on Thursday. Of the 15 college players known to have traveled to Pittsburgh for in-house interviews, five are defensive backs and four are linebackers.

Kaepernick defends rep

San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick put out a statement on his Twitter account a day after his name was linked to a Miami police report involving a woman who passed out in a hotel and later woke up in a hospital not knowing how she got there.

Referring to some media reports on the situation, Kaepernick said: “I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up.” He told fans their faith in him is not misplaced.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
