  1. Pittsburgh Steelers

Cameron Sutton – CB – Tennessee

The Steelers made the post-season despite a very bad secondary. It will be a big priority for the team heading into the off-season and if they can’t address the position of corner in free agency then they will need to do so in the top of the draft.

Sutton is a versatile corner with good speed and solid tackling. He covers well and at Tennessee opposing teams tended to look elsewhere. He would fit very well in the Steelers system. While corner is in need of upgrade, the Steelers need to address their offensive line as well and it would be no surprise to see the Steelers go in that direction early in this draft. The Steelers offensive line gave up way too many hits on Roethlisberger this past season. Cody Whitehair of Kansas State, a guard, could also be a top pick for the Steelers at 25.
