2015 NFL Draft: Prospects Available For The Steelers On Day-Three

Two days of the 2015 NFL Draft have now come and gone and with three picks already in the books, the Pittsburgh Steelers still have five more scheduled for the final four rounds that will take place Saturday.

Here is a look at several players they might be eyeing during the final day.

Offensive Line:

Tre’ Jackson – Was the FSU trip all for nothing? The Steelers were there to see several prospects but now most of them have been drafted. Jackson, however, is still available and if he continues to slide, nabbing him in the fourth round might not be a bad idea. He played right guard in college and could potentially stay there if drafted as David DeCastro might could switch sides starting in 2016 if Ramon Foster is not re-signed next offseason.

Mark Glowinski – Like Jackson, Glowinski is another fourth-round guard that played on the right side in college. The Steelers seemed to show some interest in him during his pro day.

Max Garcia – If the Steelers want to wait another round or so for a very versatile player, Garcia would make sense in either the fifth or sixth round if available. While he’s probably best-suited to play inside at the NFL level, he has experience at tackle. They like those kind of players and they met with him at his pro day.

Cornerbacks:

Doran Grant – Grant could wind up being the next cornerback off the board, so the Steelers might not get a shot at him unless they trade up. Even though they drafted Senquez Golson in the second-round, he might be too short to play outside. One would think that another cornerback that has a better shot at playing outside will be drafted sometime in the final four rounds.

Darryl ¬†Roberts – Roberts came in for a pre-draft visit so there’s some level of interest in him. He has size and speed but is very raw and often times too grabby. Regardless, if he’s still on the board come the fifth-round, he will look very appealing to teams looking for depth they can work with.

Justin Coleman РColeman can probably be had in the final two rounds and he played well in the East-West Shrine game. I remember him being strong and aggressive in the tape of him I watched and I believe he has some upside.

Safeties:

Kurtis Drummond – Drummond was the Big Ten Defensive Back of the Year last season and had 25 passes defensed and 8 interceptions over the course of the last two seasons. If the Steelers are looking for a free safety type to challenge Robert Golden, Drummond would be a perfect prospect in yet another poor safety class. He’s likely to be drafted in the next two rounds. The Steelers were at his pro day.

Adrian Amos – The Steelers ought to know quite a bit about Amos being as he played at Penn State. Like Drummond, he is a good developmental free safety-type. I will be shocked if he’s not drafted in the fourth-round.

Running Backs:

Jeremy Langford – Langford really would compliment Le’Veon Bell well and he even went to Michigan State. While he’s not as physical as Bell, he has a lot of the same skill-sets. He should be coming off the board in the next two rounds.

Cameron Artis-Payne – Being as the Steelers are heavy on the SEC players this year, this Auburn running back should be right up their alley. His more of a power back that could possible help out on special teams. He should still be on the board for the next couple of rounds.

David Cobb – Cobb is more of a change of pace back that should be durable at the NFL level. Round five might be when he comes off the board.

Outside Linebackers:

Davis Tull – Small school product with great measurables that made a pre-draft visit. The outside linebacker group has thinned quickly so Tull is likely to hear his name called in the next two rounds.

Kyle Emanuel – I can almost type the same thing here for Emanuel as I did for Tull. Sure, there are questions about the competition he faced in college like Tull, but he was ultra productive nonetheless. He beat the players he was supposed to beat on a regular basis.

Max Valles – Valles would be the perfect pupil for Joey Porter. This kid is very young and while full of technical warts, he has a nice upside. How much longer can he last being as he played in the ACC? Two rounds? Three?

Tight Ends:

Blake Bell – You should already know how I feel about Bell. He ought to be coming off the board in the next two rounds and actually could become the heir apparent to Heath Miller if he continues to develop his game. He looked great in his first season playing tight end and he’s a solid red zone target already.

Jesse James – Another talented tight end that could succeed Miller. He played at Penn State so the Steelers should know plenty about him. Like Bell, James is coming off the board in the next two rounds.

C.J. Uzomah – Late round prospect that could become the heir apparent to Matt Spaeth. If he winds up going undrafted, he should be a priority free agent. Like others on this list, he also made a pre-draft visit.

Now it’s time for you to add your day-three targets in the comments below.
