Todd McShay's third NFL mock draft for 2014 is out on ESPN Insider today. Much like the Chicago Bears, the Pittsburgh Steelers could use just about everything on defense. They must get younger on this side of the ball and will not be major players in free agency. The defensive line makes the most sense for where to start, and McShay's choice for Pittsburgh in his last mock, Louis Nix III, still makes an awful lot of sense to man the nose tackle position. They could really use a 3-4 defensive end as well, but there doesn't appear to be a likely candidate for the middle of Round 1.
The Steelers covet size and length at cornerback and need help here as well. Pittsburgh also could really use a young pass-catcher with size, and it appears unlikely that they would pass on Mike Evans, although he seems unlikely to be available. A young athletic tight end could be another option as a successor and complement to Heath Miller, but overall, this will be a heavy defensive draft for the Steelers.
Whom does McShay have the Steelers drafting at No. 15? Let's take a look:
