Default Steelers may add players at safety and cornerback

Steelers may add players at safety and cornerback for a variety of reasons
April 4, 2008
ProFootballWeekly


Whether the Steelers will address the NFL's third-ranked pass defense from a season ago in the draft is one of the most interesting subplots surrounding the club. The team?s play at free safety left something to be desired once Ryan Clark (spleen) left the lineup in October, with both Anthony Smith and Tyrone Carter having struggled. Cornerback may also be a need: RCB Deshea Townsend will be 33 in October. The team?s No. 3 cornerback, Bryant McFadden, will be an unrestricted free agent at season?s end. LCB Ike Taylor is signed for three more seasons, but he has never been a perfect fit in the Steelers? defense, which requires a lot of zone coverages as a safety net against blitzers who don?t get to the quarterback.

Even if we draft a good Cover Corner, how will we play them? Would we continue to
line them up ten yards off the ball or bring them closer to the line of scrimage. Feedback would be appreciated.

A perfect example of this was last year, Jason David was a great corner in Indy's system of cover 2 playing a lot of zones, he signs a big deal with the Saints who play alot of man on man coverage and he is the most burnt corner of the year. So while the big name shut down guy is nice he isn't necessarily our best option.


Yes, Yes, Yes, I see your point. Reminds me of Randel El.

23 overall pick is either a corner or guard. i think we can narrow it down to those two major needed positions.

Specifically Brandon Albert. Your right on with a DB, but let's not forget Groves or even Mayo.
