    Steelers 2nd/3rd year defensive players need to step up large!

    LB Stephenson Sylvester
    DE Cam Heyward
    CB Cortez Allen
    DB Curtis Brown
    LB Chris Carter

    These guys need to begin to be able to play big when they get onto the field ...

    Our defensive depth is otherwise real weak unless these guys step into their place as meeting "the standard" ...

    Heyward is a #1 pick and needs to step in this year and play like one!
    It's hip to T-Squared ...

    Agreed Lake. I look for Heyward and Allen to make big strides this year. I'm not sold on Sylvester being able to contribute much more than on special teams.

    Im going with Heyward and Carter. I am really pulling for Sly cause he was a phenom in the ST department.

    It would be huge if those DB's stepped up big time this year
    There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

    I think Sylvester still has a chance to blossom ... I like our depth if he does ...

    watch Slys college film. He has a nose for the ball that rivals anyone. I really hope he's ready because he will get significant PT this year.
    I like big hits and I cannot lie

    Carnell Lake has the whole offseason to work with Brown and Allen this year, I look for both of them to have a solid year and a good training camp to start with.

    Heyward will get significant snaps in the regular defensive rotation. He's strong as an ox and has the raw talent to be great.
