    To quote Carnell Lake:

    "The Citadel is not a football factory," Lake said. "A lot of the work that he gets is very limited in terms of football. I asked him when he came to visit us, 'How much time do you get to work on your craft?' He said, 'I don't get a lot of time because I have to do The Citadel stuff.'

    "So I said, this guy is really playing well, and he's not working on his craft that much because of his limited time. If he can spend a lot of time working on his craft, I see a lot of upside for him. I think that is one of the reasons why we selected him."

    He may not see the field this year but I believe he will develop into a good player.

    I love this pick! Not sure he would've lasted one more round so im glad they got him when they did. Some people had higher/lower grades or projections for him, but i really thought late 4th/early 5th round and that held true.

    So far this and the Heyward pick are my favorites and on the list of guys i wanted to draft!

    Pittsburgh Steelers 2011 Rookie Icebreaker: Cortez Allen

    With the 128th overall pick, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected a high character football player, hailing from The Citadel, one of the United States’ military academies. In a rare move by the Steelers, they selected corner backs in back-to-back rounds, selecting Cortez Allen in the fourth round, after selecting Curtis Brown in the third.
    Read the rest here.

    Seems like another typical Steeler mid round reach to me. It takes more than being a good athlete to be an NFL corner. Davon House and Cannon were there for the taking. I had to google this guy because I was thinking "who the f is Cortez Allen?". Smells of Burnett and Lewis all over again.

    I totally agree this guy is totally raw and played at a school where football was an after thought. He had basically little or no real knowledge of corner but off talent alone got an invite to the combine and the senior bowl and played well. Thats got to turn on some kind of light for you.

    I'm not sure that they couldn't of had this guy in the 6th round. I just really think they reached on this one. I like his measurables and all but he looks like a two/three year project at best.

    My question to the drafting crew is how could you take this kid when you could have drafted Marcus Cannon??

    maybe because we have mcfadden and gay... oh and lewis. we need to sign ike.

    they should have signed 5 CB's we have a boat load of OL...

    we still need to go FA for a CB... then dump the CB trash as fast as possible.
