PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers, who drafted pass-rusher T.J. Watt with the 30th overall pick on Thursday night, have three more selections on Day 2 of the NFL draft.

General manager Kevin Colbert likes the defensive back depth in this draft. It might be time to capitalize as early as the second round. A look at a few of the prospects still on the board:

Kevin King, Washington: He will probably be gone in the early second round, but he's still on the board for now. The 6-foot-3 King is the type of long and fast hybrid player the Steelers coveted when they selected Ryan Shazier in 2014 and Sean Davis last year.

Budda Baker, Washington: The 5-9 frame is an issue, but he offsets lack of size with coverage instincts and open-field tackling. He could be an option at No. 60 overall if he falls that far.

Josh Jones, N.C. State: The Steelers met with Jones, who can play the run or pass with physicality, which sometimes gets him in trouble with lack of discipline. He has ideal size at 6-1, 220 pounds.

Teez Tabor, Florida: Past drug-test issues and a 4.6 40 will make Tabor drop. But he's considered a big, natural cover corner who utilizes his long arms well. Could be good third-round value.

Jourdan Lewis, Michigan: Domestic violence case looms large. Lewis has pleaded not guilty. On the field, Lewis has coverage instincts and closing speed that translates well to the NFL game.
