Mike Tomlin, Draft Ninja

Word is Tomlin and Kevin Colbert were at Michigan State's pro day and all over (previously unheard of by me) safety Trent Robinson:
The Steelers' braintrust showed up in East Lansing today to scout the Michigan State pro day, and they apparantly (sic) weren't there for DT Jerel Worthy, WR/RS Keshawn Martin or TE Brian Linthicum. According to a tweet from draft pundit Tony Paulice, Colbert and Tomlin were "all over safety Trent Robinson."
Trenton Robinson is an athletic, quick three-year starter at free safety for Michigan State who intercepted seven passes the last two seasons. He's a 5-9 3/4, 195-pounder who just turned 22 last month.
At the combine, Robinson ran a 4.52 40 with 15 bench reps and a 35-inch vertical jump. Catch him on a replay of the Big 10 championship game when he made 12 tackles against Wisconsin. I believe he's a third or fourth-round prospect.
Was it smoke for the aforementioned three players? Doubtful, since Tomlin and Colbert are not the types to waste time, but Worthy (6-2.3, 308, 5.08) and Martin (5-11.4, 188, 4.45, 39.5 vj, 6.85 3-cone) are certainly interesting prospects.
Looks like the dinner with the noodle-armed (Scott Simon's words) future backup wasn't necessarily  a smokescreen, but potentially a reconnaissance mission by none other than the baddest man to wear a coaches headset.  You're a bad man, Mike Tomlin.
