PITTSBURGH -- One of the Pittsburgh Steelers top NFL Draft prospects could find himself falling out of the first round. According to NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah, Georgia offensive tackle Amarius Mims is finding himself sliding on draft board.

Jeremiah believes that at this point in the draft process, Mims has fallen behind one of the Steelers' other top names, Duke center Graham Barton. So much so, that Jeremiah believes Mims could slide into Round Two.

"If you had asked me a month ago, I would have said Guyton and Mims, they’re gonna go ahead of Graham Barton," Jeremiah said on the Move the Stick podcast. "What happens as we get to the end, people are like, ‘Man those guys are really talented and maybe next year they’d be top fifteen picks, but there’s just not a lot of starts.'"

The Steelers have done their homework on Mims, meeting with him at the NFL Combine, attending his Pro Day at Georgia and scheduling a pre-draft visit with him. However, a hamstring injury has brought question to whether or not the team will actually get to watch him workout during his visit.

Mims played just eight games in college due to injuries. The 6-foot-7, 330-pound tackle plays naturally on the right side and would be a perfect fit for the Steelers offensive line. But because of his limited tape and consistent injury history, there's growing question to whether or not Pittsburgh would add him with the 20th pick.
