Draft pick odds column shows how diverse the selection pool is for the 15th pick

Andy Lyons

Steel City Insider publisher Jim Wexell posted his yearly Draft Odds column Sunday, illustrating just how many different options the Steelers have with the 15th pick.

I end every year of draft coverage with a broad-lens review of the draft-based articles I've written.

Every year, I end up saying to myself, "I just need to capture the mood of what Jim Wexell does with his Draft Pick Odds Breakdown column."

I already know now I've failed again in that pursuit. Still, some things aren't meant to be duplicated, which is why they aren't. Two things that meet that criterion are Wex's training camp notebook and his draft odds column. We've got the latter of the two knocked out.

It's the simplicity in what he's writing, packing in loads of information in a short space. It's always very informative but it's clever, it's witty and you always feel like you walked away from it having had a great conversation with the coolest draft writer alive.

Wexell's favorite is, not surprisingly Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard. He has to be considered the legit front-runner for the 15th pick. Kyle Fuller (someone we've banged the gong for since breaking him down in March) finished third behind Odell Beckham. We can see all three of these players being the pick, and Wexell points out how diverse the group of candidates are for that spot this year.

He also ranks C.J. Mosley, Eric Ebron, Kelvin Benjamin, Justin Gilbert, Ryan Shazier, Brandin Cooks, Calvin Pryor, Ra'Shede Hageman, Stephon Tuitt and Louis Nix.
