Steelers meet with CB Quinyon Mitchell at Senior Bowl

If we had to pick the two biggest needs in terms of the roster for the Pittsburgh Steelers right now, it is a new starting center and a new starting cornerback. At cornerback, Levi Wallace is set to hit free agency and it feels like Patrick Peterson might be making the switch to safety.

But the Steelers need a guy who can line up opposite Joey Porter Jr. So it comes as no surprise that Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Omar Khan are checking out the cornerbacks down in Mobile at the Reese’s Senior Bowl.

The best cornerback at the Senior Bowl is Toldeo’s Quinyon Mitchell. So it’s great to hear straight from Mitchell that he has already met with the Steelers while he’s down there.

Mitchell is an impressive prospect and might be the best man cornerback in the draft. Mitchell is very open about the fact he likes to play Cover 0 and just be locked up with a receiver. This certainly matches up with the mindset of Porter who followed the opposing team’s best receiver around for most of the second half of the season.
