Day 3 of the NFL Draft is always filled with names many people don't recognize. However, these players can be just as important as those taken in the first two days. The Pittsburgh Steelers should target these five prospects on Day 3.
Jensen is a big, athletic player who can benefit from learning around veteran Heath Miller. Jensen is a standout special teams player. He has four career blocked kicks.
Mostly overshadowed by his fellow teammates at Florida, Watkins is a long, lean defender suited for the cornerback position. Pittsburgh has many questions at the CB position, and Watkins could push for early playing time as a rookie. Watkins has three career interceptions.
Pittsburgh signed free agent Mike Mitchell, but Troy Polamalu is not getting any younger. Loston is comparable to former teammate and 2013 first-round pick Eric Reid, Loston is not as athletic, but plays the same style. He shows the quickness to get downfield and is a ferocious hitter.
Hubbard has been a disappointment in Alabama because he has all the skills to be a dominant player. The right situation can help mold Hubbard into the player everybody is eager to see. His flashes his speed and athleticism to attack the ball carrier or cover the TE. The Steelers could find themselves a steal if Hubbard breaks out.
Brett Keisel, Ziggy Hood and Al Woods are all no longer members of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and DL depth will be a big need for the Steelers come May. Johnson brings initial quickness and burst, and would bolster a thin defensive line for Pittsburgh. Johnson can play either end or tackle in the 3-4.
