Locked on Steelers: Ahkello Witherspoon Leads Underrated CB Room
Steelers Now reporter Chris Carter digs deep on the Pittsburgh Steelers and the NFL Monday through Friday all year long on Locked on Steelers. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ cornerbacks might be the most underrated group on the roster.
Ahkello Witherspoon looks to be the CB1 of the group, but is that a good or a bad thing? He’s a veteran who played well in a small sample size last season and is joined by Cameron Sutton and Levi Wallace as solid veterans who can start for the team. Their experience could prove to be a good boost to make them a solid, dependable cornerback room for the defense. Meanwhile, Mason Rudolph doesn’t look as bad as most Steelers fans would think to start OTAs. But can he win the starting job and be QB1?
Mitch Trubisky is still the favorite and Kenny Pickett is still the plan for the future, but there are reasons why Rudolph does have an outside shot to win the job. Finally, a question from a listener asks if Ben Roethlisberger being gone will hurt the Steelers’ development at wide receiver. With Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, George Pickens and Calvin Austin III all looking to prove themselves, this year could show how much Roethlisberger was involved with wide receivers of the past.
