As the days continue to wind down until the start of the 2014 NFL Draft, smokescreens are popping up around every corner. Who will the Pittsburgh Steelers take? Right now, your guess is as good as ours.

One player that will definitely garner some attention at number 15 is Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller. Arguably the top corner in this class, he plays with a physical edge and has the look of a difference maker in the secondary.

At 6-0, 190-pounds, Fuller has the athleticism and size to fit into the Steelers defense. An instinctive cornerback, he has experience both inside against the slot, outside and he has even seen time at safety. While he has the timed speed (4.40 40-yard dash), he is aggressive against the run and is not afraid of throwing his hat into the ring. A four-year starter, Fuller will have to receive a complete positive medical check to be considered at 15. With an almost overaggressive demeanor, a slight build, and a physical attitude, he has to prove that the injury concerns are unjustified.

Fuller has been a hot commodity heading into these final days before the draft and has solidified himself as a first round prospect. There is little doubt that he is one the Steelers RADAR at number 15. However, the bigger question would be whether or not he will still be available.
