In the 5th round, the Steelers picked Cameron Stephenson, OG from Rutgers with the 156th overall pick. Also, with the 170th overall choice, the Steelers picked William Gay, CB from Louisville.
Stephenson is a raw talent, and his size and ability are very promising. Plus it was nice to see Pittsburgh finally address the issue that is the offensive line.
Gay becomes the 4th player from Louisville to be selected in this draft. If Ike Taylor and Bryant Mcfadden finally become the shut-down corners that they were supposed to be, Gay will be relegated to special teams. However, a capable backup is always appreciated, especially when our cornerbacks’ “coverage” breaks down.
