2015 NFL Rookie To Watch | Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers rookie to watch this year is their second round pick CB Senequez Golson.  The Steelers secondary was historically bad last season, and the team found themselves in many high scoring contests.  So they went out and addressed the issue by drafting a 5’8 corner in the second round.  What Golson lacks in size, he makes up for with ball skills.  He had a knack in college...
