PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Many mock drafts have the Steelers selecting a cornerback with their first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, but Kirk Larrabee of 247Sports.com has a scouting profile of a cornerback the team could be looking at in the second round as well.
According to Larrabee, the Steelers could be interested in Florida State cornerback Ronald Darby.
The 5’11, 193-pound Darby recorded 43 tackles and four passes defended while being named third-team All-ACC this past season.
One of Darby’s best attributes is his speed as he ran a 4.38 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.
With the team lacking talent and depth at cornerback, it makes sense that they’d be looking at a number of players to possibly select at that position in the first and second rounds as Darby is rated as a second-round talent.
