Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis has some high expectations for himself this season.

Lewis told Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he expects to accomplish something that no other Steelers cornerback has done since Rod Woodson in 1996. 

“Pro Bowl,” Lewis predicted. “Watch out, this is going to be a big year right here.” 

It will be a major achievement for Lewis, who has only started one game in his career. He will also face stiff competition from Curtis Brown and Cortez Allen.

Whether Lewis—or any other Steelers’ cornerback for that matter—makes the Pro Bowl remains to be seen.

Regardless of who wins the job, Pittsburgh will have plenty of options to put on the field as they find ways to defend the precision passing attacks seen in the NFL today.

But by combining the talent at cornerback with Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark at safety, Pittsburgh will potentially have one of the strongest defensive backfields in the league. 

Here is a preview of the Steelers’ defensive backs.
