Steelers 2011 Draft Revisited – The Other Cam

Round Four – 128th Overall – Cortez Allen – Cornerback– 6’1″ 197 lbs. –The Citadel

Very few players are drafted out of The Citadel, a military institute that places very little importance on sports. Prior to the draft, ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. ranked Allen as a “sleeper pick in the 3rd or 4th round” and described him as “a big corner who runs well, tests well athletically, and has good strength. The Steelers believed so too, drafting him in the fourth round. Allen played mainly on special teams and nickel coverage, showing great instincts. He will compete with Keenan Lewis and Curtis Brown for the starting cornerback position left behind by William Gay.
