Who Will Be This Year's Cameron Heyward

Every year in the past decade the Steelers have had a young player they drafted have a break out campaign and solidified themselves as a starter here are some examples

2004- Troy Polamalu

2005- Willie Parker

2006- No one comes to mind

2007- James Harrison/Santonio Holmes

2008- LaMarr Woodley

2009 Rashard Mendenhall

2010- Mike Wallace

2011- Antonio Brown

2012- Keenan Lewis

2013- Cameron Heyward/Jason Worilds

Aside from 2006, we've had a guy step up and have a break out season. So what player who was drafted from 2011- present has the best chance at having a break out season next year? If I had to take my best guess, I'd say it's going to be Cortez Allen. He started to play very well at the end of the season once he finally got healthy and matched up on guys like AJ Green and Josh Gordon, not allowing either to score a touchdown. He just seems primed to solidify the #1 corner spot to me.
