Chris Carter of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, hosts the Locked on Steelers podcast.
The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Joey Porter Jr. and Cory Trice Jr. as their new cornerbacks in the 2023 NFL Draft. Now during OTAs, they're turning heads for how they've been fitting in at practice. Porter and Trice as rookies are said to have been understanding and fitting into the Steelers' defensive schemes very well by Patrick Peterson, the Steelers' oldest cornerback in the room and a future Hall of Fame cornerback.
Is the hype around the rookies for real? Maybe. But there's a factor that simply getting the defensive concepts within their understanding could be unlocked.
Also, there's the potential for a weakness in the Steelers secondary, and it could be potential matchups with playmaker tight ends. The absence of Terrell Edmunds wasn't filled with safeties who are particularly known for shutting down that position. So how will the Steelers' adjust to that as a potential weakness against players like Mark Andrews and the Baltimore Ravens and George Kittle with the San Francisco 49ers?
