29. Pittsburgh Steelers- Kevon Seymour, CB, USC

The Pittsburgh Steelers have committed a lot of draft capital in recent years to upgrade the defense. Their work on that side of the ball isn’t finished as they need to add talented at the cornerback position. They just aren’t getting great production out of players like Cortez Allen and William Gay.

USC’s Kevon Seymour is an emerging cornerback prospect who features great size and movement ability. He’s the type of cornerback NFL teams are starting to target because he can match up with the bigger wide receivers taking over the league.

30. Arizona Cardinals- Christian Hackenberg, QB, PSU

Christian Hackenberg’s draft stock has taken a major hit with his slow start to the season. However, a lot of the issues he is having this year are carryovers from last year. Hackenberg is struggling with his accuracy, ability to handle pressure and decision making. He may have a ton of physical talent but playing quarterback is also very mental.

The Cardinals are the perfect team to take a risk on the highly talented Hackenberg. Bruce Arians is a great coach who knows how to develop quarterbacks. In Arizona, Hackenberg would work with Arians and learn behind the veteran leadership of Carson Palmer.

31. Green Bay Packers- Scooby Wright, LB, Arizona

I’m not totally behind the idea that Scooby Wright will be a great NFL player. His lack of size and athleticism is a major concern. However, you can not doubt his instincts and play-making ability. Wright is always around the football and that should be enough to warrant early-round consideration.

The Packers have been searching for stability at the inside linebacker position for a few years. They have been forced to plug Clay Matthews in at the position which is something neither the Packers or Matthews want to continue.
