The Pro Days are now underway ahead of the 2015 NFL Draft as Wake Forest, Minnesota and Virginia are the big named schools hosting the events on Monday. According to Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer, the Pittsburgh Steelers have sent at least four people to Wake Forest to observe cornerback Kevin Johnson.

According to David Newton of ESPN.com, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert, defensive backs coach Carnell Lake, player personnel coordinator Dan Rooney Jr. and pro personnel coordinator Brandon Hunt are the four in attendance.
Johnson, who chose not run Monday, measured in at just over 6’0″ at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine and weighed 188 pounds. He posted a 4.52 second 40-yard dash time while in Indianapolis to go along with a 41.5″ vertical jump and a 10’10” broad jump.
While Johnson could hear his name called during the first round of the draft, several draftniks believe he will wind up being selected in the second round.
The Steelers will almost certainly draft a cornerback during the first three rounds of the draft and it’s clear that Johnson has their attention.
