With the Pittsburgh Steelers now eliminated from the playoffs, their focus will shift to the offseason, particularly the NFL Draft. General manager Omar Khan’s first draft was a booming success but how will he follow it up in his second season in charge?

One of the top potential options will be Clemson CB Nate Wiggins, who is generating plenty of buzz in the months leading up to April’s NFL Draft.
