With the first two days of the NFL Draft in the books, the Pittsburgh Steelers have added speed and talent to their roster. Unfortunately, they also have left themselves with some questions after adding Ryan Shazier, Stephon Tuitt, and Dri Archer to the fold.

This will be the final attempt of 2014 at projecting day three with a targeted mock draft for the Steelers. As always, we would truly appreciate any and all feedback on this attempt at a mock draft or any of our articles at Steelers101. Feel free to interact with us on these picks by commenting on the post, on our facebook fan page or on twitter @Steelers_101.

Round 4 – CB Antone Exum – Virginia Tech

The Steelers must add a young cornerback to the mix and Exum could be that player. An experienced corner / safety, he has the ability to come in and compete and add solid depth to the position. 

Round 5 – WR Brandon Coleman – Rutgers

The Steelers will add a big receiver at some point in this draft and decide to pull the trigger on Coleman. At 6-6, he also has deceptive speed and could be a Red Zone target.  

Round 5 (Compensation) – OLB Prince Shembo – Notre Dame

The Steelers would like to add more depth to their linebacking corps and decide to grab a pass rusher. Shembo is raw, but he should have some time to develop.

Round 6 – NT Daniel McCullers – Tennessee

The Steelers will likely add depth to their defensive line and grab McCullers. A mountain of a man, he has the ability to be a run stuffer and double team magnet.

Round 6 (Compensation) – WR Quincy Enunwa _ Nebraska

The Steelers would like to add height to their receiving corps and grab a developmental prospect that could pay dividends in the future.

Round 7 – CB Aaron Colvin – Oklahoma

Colvin is a great value at this point. A playmaker, he would be off the board if not damaging his ACL. The Steelers drafted Exum early to play, Colvin can heal and learn the system and give the team a boost in the future.
