Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has a favorite Pro Day tradition that a lot of other people likely would have too.

Tomlin was asked about that tradition during his pre-NFL Draft press conference and confirmed that he loves to eat at new places.

"We eat a lot. We sample regional dining," Tomlin said.

Hey, when you have a chance to go to different parts of the country, it's only natural to want to try all sorts of different food.

Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert go to their usual stops at Michigan, Ohio State, Clemson, Georgia, but they will also go to smaller schools, such as Liberty.

They went down to Liberty earlier this year to catch a glimpse of quarterback Malik Willis, who very well could be a Steeler after Thursday night.

The next question to ask Tomlin would be what his favorite regional dining place is. Perhaps that could get some people to make a trip and try the place out.
