However, you can't rely on him to cover at all. With that said, I think the Steelers might go with an in the box safety type who's aggressive in the run game and able to cover. Not sure Peppers is that guy for them, but Reddick from Temple is in that mold (although designated as a LB) and so is the workout wonder safety from UConn.
