Consensus of mock drafts send CB Marcus Peters to Pittsburgh

New, comments

Despite the rising presence of Jalen Collins and Kevin Johnson, Marcus Peters still leads the consensus pick for the Steelers at 22.

Walter Football is one of the top original and aggregate draft sites available.

They compiled totals from other mock drafts, and determined the majority of them see Washington cornerback Marcus Peters to the Steelers with the 22nd pick.

But not by a wide margin.

Peters was the pick in 15 percent of the mocks, leading Kentucky outside linebacker Bud Dupree, who had 12 percent. LSU cornerback Jalen Collins was third at nine percent.

Collins was BTSC's pick in our recent seven-round mock draft, and was also the pick of ESPN's Todd McShay.

The Steelers were at Wake Forest's Pro Day on Monday, likely there to take a look at CB Kevin Johnson, who likely finished around the top of an expanded list of candidates.

Dupree may have gotten a good amount of attention in regards to the 22nd pick before the Combine but after an excellent showing there, and the value of athletic pass rushers coming from the draft, he's not likely to fall that far. It's still a name to remember, but cornerbacks clearly have the attention of mockers.
