Mock drafts have Steelers taking CB or WR

5/8/2014

PITTSBURGH -- It’s hard to find a mock draft that doesn’t have the Steelers taking a cornerback or a wide receiver tonight with their first-round pick.

ESPN analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay each have the Steelers selecting a cornerback though they opted for different ones.

Kiper has the Steelers picking Michigan State’s Darqueze Dennard in his final mock draft, writing that Dennard is a perfect fit in Dick LeBeau’s defense. McShay has the Steelers taking Virginia Tech’s Kyle Fuller, writing that his ball skills and ability to provide run support make him an ideal pick for the Steelers.
