In a recent press conference, All-Pro safety Minkah Fitzpatrick spoke highly of two young Pittsburgh Steelers defensive backs.

Since the Steelers lost Mike Hilton in free agency and elected to cut cornerback Steven Nelson for salary cap reasons, fans have been wondering how the secondary is going to look in 2021. It’s a valid question, no doubt.

Despite their offseason losses, Pittsburgh made virtually no attempt to add defensive back help via the 2021 NFL Draft, and they have yet to bring in a veteran free agent that could contribute to the team this year.
