    Mike Tomlin impressed with Steelers rookie safety tandem

    Mike Tomlin impressed with Steelers rookie safety tandem

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have a pair of rookies at minicamp this weekend, and Mike Tomlin likes what he sees — so far.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers struggled on defense on more than one occasion in the 2017 season, and even the most untrained football eye could tell you it was commonly a lack of communication, and poor tackling.

    Throughout the 2018 NFL Draft, the Steelers focus when selecting a defender usually revolved around the aforementioned attributes. Players who communicated well, and were known for their tackling.

    Out of the seven picks they had in the draft process, the team took two safeties. Both of those safeties were lauded for their ability to communicate well, and their rather sound tackling technique.

    Well if it was a tattoo-having competition, Allen looks like he'd be in the starting lineup Week 1.
    An empty victory is a victory nonetheless.

    Hopefully tackling is "The Standard" this year.

    I could be more excited about Marcus Allen than anybody. With all the chatter about Samuels and Rudolph being steals, I think Allen gets lost in the mix
