Default Re: Steelers take another CB in fourth round of draft

Utilizes his length and reach to rack up the pass break-ups and extend for difficult INTs but needs to show more aggressiveness on jump balls and when taking on blockers against the run. Instincts and awareness need to be developed. Allen likely will be taken on Day 3.
Uh... okay...

Doesn't sound great but I think there has to be something KC sees that this guy doesn't. Because, to me anyways, it doesn't sound like Allen is a fourth round pick...
