    Steelers draft - Round 4 - Cortez Allen - CB - Citadel




    Player ranking and stats

    Allen played only one year of high school football, but that single season was impressive; he was named first-team all-state in Florida by the state's sportswriters (the team also included 2010 prospects RB Javarris James (Miami, Fla.), DT Linval Joseph (East Carolina), CB Sam Shields (Miami, Fla.) and 2011 prospect Ohio State senior linebacker Brian Rolle).
    Allen took on the challenge of attending a military college, The Citadel. He played sparingly in four games as a true freshman, making two tackles, before redshirting the 2007 season due to injury.
    Allen finally received more playing time in 2008, playing in all 12 games, starting six, making 39 tackles, two for loss and breaking up five passes. His breakout 2009 season earned him a spot on the Southern Conference's coaches second team; his 57 tackles ranked second on the team, and his three interceptions and five pass breakups led the squad.
    The 2010 second-team All-Southern Conference pick (22 tackles, two INTs, five PBUs) has a build and movement quite similar to those of former Tennessee State star Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who was Arizona's first-round pick in 2008. Allen has not been as productive as "DRC" and is not quite as physical, but has prototypical height and similarly quick feet. Those attributes should get him consideration in the mid-to-late rounds.

    they keep on going for the "character guys" hey he is a Steeler now so I hope he is a beast. He had a great combine, we will see what he can do vs. elite competition very soon.

    He was here in March obviously lake saw something there.

    Butler, Brown, Allen... Lake will have a good camp.. I hope he dials them up.

    Taylor signs that will be good....

    Then Sign NA...

    Maybe lake will convert Keenan to a Safety

    Can the rest.

    See you in the SB ... GB - Steeler rematch.

    I don't think anyone will miss him, he has emotional issues.
