The Steelers have been using Ahkello Witherspoon and Joe Haden on the outside this year. Both have performed well and are free agents this spring. The Steelers might not be willing to pay the going rate for the aged Haden or the up-and-coming Witherspoon. Despite their disastrous success rate at drafting corners, they need to fill in the gap somehow. With the team allegedly looking for the next QB in free agency, they probably can't compete for a quality starter at CB in free agency. Expect them to draft a player with upside and sign a Free Agent to backstop the position.

Booth is a tall corner with a physical demeanor and good ball skills. Other looks here would be O-line or QBs Ridder or Willis.

STEELERS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
