2010 NFL Draft: Corner Kyle Wilson Could Be Fit for Steelers at 18th Pick

With the signing of Casey Hampton complete, the Steelers could turn their attention towards their most glaring weakness.

Poor play from the cornerback position was part of the reason for the defensive collapse late in games this past season.

Troy Polamalu's return should be a huge boost to the secondary and the defense as a whole, but that alone won't fix the problem.

The Steelers may be looking at cornerbacks when the 18th pick rolls around, and Boise State's Kyle Wilson should be on their radar.

He was a three-year starter and team leader at Boise State with a knack for being a playmaker.

Wilson has a good work ethic and has played well in zone-cover schemes. He also supports the run effectively and has proven he can match up against superior competition.

He is projected to go in the first or early second round and could fill an area of need for Pittsburgh if the Steelers feel he is the best available talent on the board at the No. 18 pick.

The Steelers' secondary needs to show improvement; Kyle Wilson may just be part of the answer.

We shall see.
