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.
