Selection: Pittsburgh Steelers select Miami cornerback Artie Burns.

Analysis: Burns is a speedy, athletic corner that packs a punch when he puts his helmet on a ball carrier. 

At 6-foot, 193-pounds, Burns is a guy that can play the press as well as drop back into coverage. He'll be a welcomed addition in Pittsburgh.
