Steelers Go All SEC In First Three Rounds Of Draft

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now made three selections in 2015 NFL Draft and all three players that they drafted played their college football in the SEC.

After selecting Kentucky linebacker Bud Dupree Thursday night in the first-round, the Steelers kept their picks limited to SEC players on Friday by drafting Mississippi cornerback Senquez Golson in the second round and Auburn wide receiver Sammie Coates in the third.

Last year, the Steelers drafted two SEC player and they were nose tackle Daniel McCullers, who played his college football at Tennessee, and offensive lineman Wesley Johnson, who played at Vanderbilt.

In 2013, the Steelers again only drafted one SEC player and that was Jarvis Jones, their first-round selection who played his college football at Georgia.

While Dupree was never brought in for a pre-draft as far as we know, Golson and Coates both were.
