2019 might be the draft where the Steelers finally get their cornerback

The 2019 NFL Draft is fast-approaching, and, unlike in years past, the Steelers might actually have their pick of cornerbacks when the 20th pick of the first round (their pick) finally comes around on the evening of Thursday, April 25.

Isn’t life rather ironic? After years of needing a really good cornerback in the draft, only to be just out of arm’s reach of even the best of the rest, Pittsburgh may actually have to take all of its allotted time to decide which first-round caliber corner it should choose.

I say it’s ironic, only because the Steelers just signed free agent Steven Nelson, who will join the very capable Joe Haden in hopefully bringing stability to the position in 2019.
