Default Cortez Allen

CB: 6'1, 197lbs, 4.51 40 time

Small school guy from Citadel, I've never heard of him but he looks like he could be a nice sleeper. We took him over both Brandon Burton and Davon House, so obviously we see something in him.

I was hoping for House who is a bit faster and larger but when the front office picks a small school guy like this, I get pretty excited, because we tend to make great picks in that area.

Eh he could go either way. I liked him but wanted him a little later though. He could be a decent corner in a few years or could be a bust. We will just have to waint. But you can't help but think for the steelers to take him over House and Burton there must be something in him the really like..

On a side note im so pissed at the Browns, they took Buster Skrine i really like him haha

He has great size and can possibly move to safety if he doesn't fit well at corner.

I've read reports saying he could go as early as the 4th and some that said he would be a 7th round pick.

I like the pick.

This pick was a Head scratcher for me, especially with Davon House and Brandon Burton still on the board, two more experienced corners...
