Steelers mock draft round 4: EDGE Cameron Sample

Here’s a player I really enjoyed watching at the Senior Bowl this year. Cameron Sample was very much an unknown name prior to his senior season at Tulane where he turned some heads. He continued to do the same in Mobile as he routinely won reps against offensive tackles in Senior Bowl drills.

However, even though he is coming from a non-Power 5 football program at Tulane, Sample still didn’t have great college production – which is one of the reasons why he could fall to the fourth round. Still, the Steelers have shown that they like taking small-school guys with upside and they have a need on the edge with both Bud Dupree and Ola Adeniyi departing this offseason.

Steelers mock draft round 4: WR Anthony Schwartz

It’s hard to say how long a player like Anthony Schwartz is going to last in April’s NFL Draft. On tape alone, the speedy wide receiver looks like a late day-three prospect. However, his blazing speed could have him drafted as early as the beginning of the third round. Schwartz is a player on the Steelers radar after spending one of their visits on him. If he is still around at this point, he could be their pick – possibly even a round sooner than this.
