Entering the 2017 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers had a number of draft needs which they needed to address. Outside linebacker, cornerback, safety, defensive line, running back, wide receiver and even quarterback were positions of need to help the black and gold get to the next level in 2017. There have been numerous thoughts and debates regarding what the team will do with the 30th overall draft pick, and the debate is finally over.

The Steelers have selected defensive back Cameron Sutton from the University of Tennessee with their first 3rd round pick of the draft.

Sutton, who stands just shy of 6-feet tall, is skilled at both man and zone coverage schemes, and is capable of playing both the slot and the outside. However, there is a strong feeling he could step in and be the team’s slot cornerback from Day 1. He is also physical enough to flex to safety if necessary.

A very good draft pick for the Steelers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' draft needs in the remaining rounds of the draft now would be considered: running back, tight end and even a quarterback, the foremost mentioned of the two being the primary concerned.

Stay tuned to BTSC for further news, updates and information regarding not just the team’s first round pick, but all 8 picks throughout the 7-round selection process.
