Louisiana Tech cornerback Terry Carter is a bit undersized at 5'10" and 184 pounds, and he comes from a college team that struggled against the pass in 2011.
However, he was the best player in Louisiana Tech's secondary, with 60 tackles and 10 passes broken up last season. He's also fast, running a 4.57 second 40-yard dash at his pro day.
He'll need to bulk up if he's going to make any impact on the field for the Steelers, but he could make for a good camp body at least, and he may be a solid contributor on special teams.
Pittsburgh needs to build a little depth in their secondary, and competition never hurt anyone. Carter is the only corner the Steelers picked up from the free-agent pool.
