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.
    2017 Draft

    1) Cam Sutton-CB-Tenn
    2) Jake Butt-TE-Michigan
    3)Johnny Caspers-OG-Stanford

    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.

    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).


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.
