Cameron Sutton is turning heads in OTAs
The Steelers third-round selection, Cameron Sutton, is already making noise. While it is far too early to expect him to start this year, Sutton is extremely versatile and will likely contribute on defense at some point in the season. A large deal of emphasis has been placed on the versatility of the defense, more specifically on man-coverage. Defense backs coach Carnell Lake has hinted that Sutton "...is a good attempt, especially in the third-round, of getting someone who can help us do that." Sutton's ball-skills are gleaming and this comes with little surprise, as he is the all-time leader in pass deflections at The University of Tennessee.
Artie Burns and Ross Cockrell are expected to begin the season as the outside cornerbacks, with a sprinkle of veteran William Gay (but mostly in the nickel). Cockrell has managed to make a name for himself in Pittsburgh after being released by the Buffalo Bills, but the Steelers have proven they are not shy of allowing rookies to make an early impact. Trends would suggest that William Gay will be the odd man out if Sutton can live up to the hype. Granted, it is noteworthy that the Steelers also have free agent signing Coty Sensabaugh, former second-round selection Senquez Golson, and fellow rookie Brian Allen to compete for playing time. Steelers Nation can be excited about their defensive secondary for the first time in a long time.
