Thread: Cortez Allen

  1. #1

    Cortez Allen

    welp. Definitely a name a few of us have talked about. I really have only seen him when I spent the week in Orlando for the East-West game. This is definitely a Dan Rooney (the scout) pick as this is his area of the country. Allen is our typical body-type prospect. I will say that he looked like he belonged in Orlando but has raw skills. I was talking with Chad Reuter of CBS sports about him, Chad likened him a little bit to Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie. I was really hoping for Carmichael here (damn Texas). I like the pick but I would say this was not a pick where the Steelers stuck to their board.
    Trade next years 1st and 3/41 for a top 2nd round this year


    1) Pat Mahommes-QB-TT
    2) Carl Lawson-OLB-AUB
    2) Sidney Jones-CB-Wash
    3) Ryan Anderson-OLB-ALA or Tarell Basham-OLB-Ohio
    4) Samaje Perine-RB-OU
    5) Ryan Switzer-WR-UNC
    6) Brendan Langley-CB-Lamar
    7) Billy Brown-TE-Shepherd

    Who do you think is on the chopping block given 2 more CB's just being drafted?

    I think they move Keenan Lewis to Safety.

    Mundy and Maddison probably go.

    Madison shouldn't be needed, now that we have Curtis Brown. I don't know about Lewis playing safety. Bonehead would likely be Anthony Smith revisited. I think Lewis is gone.
    Franchise Bell; extend Brown; re-sign Harrison, D. Williams, and Matthews; sign the best of the available 2nd-tier FA help at Edge, ILB, CB, and maybe FS. Hope that Ladarius Green is healthy.

    Draft 2.0
    1. Haason Reddick, ILB/OLB, Temple
    2. Carl Lawson, OLB/DE, Auburn
    3. Chad Hansen, WR, California
    3. Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State
    4. Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado
    5. Tedric Thompson, FS, Colorado
    6. Aaron Jones, RB, UTEP
    7. Keion Adams, OLB/DE, Western Michigan

    I heard Tomlin get interviewed on ESPN and when asked about the Cortez Allen selection Tomlin answered," We were intrigued by his height/weight/speed measurables combination".

    On the chopping block?

    Madison, Gay, and Taylor aren't even on the team. They are all UFAs. Perhaps Gay be a RFA depending on the CBA, but MAdison is likely gone as Brown is a capable gunner and has much better coverage skills.

    Right now our corners are

    Lewis
    Butler
    McFadden
    Corez Allen
    Curtis Brown
    and some camp fodder (Donovan Warren, Tuft Harris, etc.)
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I think Mundy has shown more than Will Allen at safety (which surprised me).

    Hopefully some of these rooks can contribute on special teams immediately, because several of the guy on our roster that played ST almost exclusively could be gone next year (Arnaz Battle, Will Allen, Anthony Madison, Keyaron Fox).
