The Pittsburgh Steelers intend to bring in at least 5-to-6 cornerbacks for official draft visits over the next month.
The team to this point has officially scheduled two visits for cornerbacks.
As previously reported on Monday, Texas cornerback Curtis Brown, a projected second round pick, will be in town for a two-day visit on March 30-31.
Citadel’s Cortez Allen, a projected mid-round pick, is scheduled for a draft visit for the first week of April, Inside Pittsburgh Sports has learned.
Allen like Curtis Brown, has excellent size at 6-foot-1, 197-pounds. In the Steelers scheme, they eye corners with good size and the ability to be run stoppers.
Allen is coming off a strong combine, running a 4.50 forty-yard dash. His draft stock is said to be on the rise and many scouts have him projected as a 4th-5th round pick.
The Steelers have two cornerbacks under contract for next season, in Bryant McFadden and Crezdon Butler.
Ike Taylor and William Gay are free agents.
