The Steelers failed to find corners early in the draft, but they are making up for it in the middle. After using their third round pick on the University of Texas Curtis Brown, a cornerback, the Steelers followed suit by choosing Cortez Allen in the 4th round.
Allen is 6’1″ and 197 pounds and played corner back at The Citadel. Cortez Allen is the second player the Steelers drafted whom they’d brought to the South Side for pre-Draft visit.
The Steelers of course drafted Marcus Gilbert, who also paid a visit to the team’s facilities just off of Carson street.
