CB Marlon Humphrey
I think wanting Marlon Humphrey speaks for itself. Since the 2000s and early 2010s, the Steelers have not had a great secondary, especially in the cornerback department. Many drafted corners have turned out to be busts and only worsen the defensive backfield. Marlon Humphrey would strengthen the cornerback position and make the secondary even stronger. Joe Haden and Cam Sutton are the spotlights of the cornerback position and with Haden most likely leaving after this season if the Steelers had Marlon Humphrey, nerves around the fanbase would be calmer.
At just 25 years old, Marlon Humphrey has already shown to be an All-Pro caliber player. Humphrey does a little bit of everything, he can cover, come up and make tackles, force turnovers, and in 2020, sack the quarterback. Humphrey is having his best coverage years since his rookie year in 2018, only allowing a 53.2% completion percentage. He has also mustered up 2 turnovers.
Marlon has, however, allowed an average of 15 yards per catch this season which is his highest average allowed throughout his short career. What the 25-year old can do for the Steelers is not only fill out a roster spot as a corner but can be a great player on the boundary for many years to come and provide turnovers at the corner position which doesn’t happen often.
Marlon Humphrey’s season is not yet over and he could improve on some poor-looking stats, but at the end of the day he is a 2x Pro Bowler and a First-Team All-Pro selection and he could help defend the upcoming talented receivers in the AFC North.
The Ravens have many talented players that would fit nicely on the Steelers. Maybe other Steelers fans would pick differently than I did. But these three players set up succussion at their respective positions for the foreseeable future and I don’t think many would have a problem with that.
