In the latest mock draft, SBNation's Dan Kada thinks the Steelers address their need for a cornerback in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft.

With the Pittsburgh Steelers locked to have the 22nd pick of the NFL draft, mock drafts can now more accurately depict what caliber of a collegiate athlete Kevin Colbert may be targeting with the team's first round selection in 2015.

SBNation's Dan Kadar did a mock draft this morning and had the Steelers acquiring Michigan State's top cornerback, Trae Waynes, and passing on Washington's Marcus Peters.

As the countdown to the April 30th for the 2015 draft continues, fans will see more and more mock drafts like this one with Pittsburgh addressing glaring needs such as their cornerback position.  Pittsburgh, however, has not drafted a cornerback in the first round since Chad Scott was selected in 1997.  Though the team will probably address the position in the off-season, fans and analysts probably won't get a more clear picture on who the team might target until free agency is underway and NFL scouts get a look at this recruiting class in the combine.
