Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin could be in an interesting position in an upcoming NFL Draft as his son, Dino Tomlin, finishes his career at Boston College.
A three-star recruit coming out of high school, Dino, a wide receiver, started his college career at Maryland. As a freshman, Dino appeared in two games and caught just one pass for seven yards against Rutgers.
Redshirting that season, Tomlin entered 2020 as a redshirt freshman, playing in four of Maryland's five games after it was shortened due to COVID-19. Dino, who stands five-foot-eleven and weighs 182 pounds, played his final season at Maryland in 2021 as a redshirt sophomore.
He appeared in 11 games, playing primarily special teams, but caught two passes for 12 yards.
