Unless injuries or some other unknown intervenes, the Steelers 2013 corner three-some should be Ike Taylor, Cortez Allen, and William Gay.
- Yes, the Steelers will miss Keenan Lewis there, but that’s not a bad first three corners.
- Nonetheless, the Steelers cannot ignore cornerback in the 2013 NFL Draft
With the passing game evolved to what it is in today’s NFL, the Steelers can simply ill afford to ignore a quality corner, especially if one falls to them early in the draft, including the first round, however unlikely that may be.
There’s another reason to think long term here. Playing behind Taylor are two other thirty somethings, by the names of Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu.
The first ability that Father Time typically robs an NFL player of is his speed.
- Biological realities all but dictate that Ike Taylor will have “slowed a step” by 2015 if not by 2014.
And that’s why if fate allows a blue-chip corner to fall to the Steelers in the 2013 NFL Draft they’d be wise to take him.
