STEELERS 2K16 Projected Starters on "D"!..."Triple Diamond Chronicles" going DEEEEEEEE-Fense as Keith Butler will be in his 2nd Season as the D-Coordinator!...CBs and the Back End must improve as STILLER GANG sinks Duffle Bags of Cash into the Secondary!...How will the Pass Rush thrive as both Jarvis Jonea and Bud Dupree must take a huge step and turning into Red Jersey Collectors! @STeelers #SteelerNation #StillerGang #BlackandYellow #SteelersNation #TripleDiamondChronicles

The much-talked about Pittsburgh Steelers "D" that finished almost dead last in Pass Defense in 2K15 must take a turn for the Greater Good in 2K16. Yes Steelers Director of Football Ops Kevin Colbert sank some checks into the Secondary last year and this season and those young man (CB Senquez Golson, CB Artie Burns, FS Sean Davis) must be ready for "Plug and Play"!

Then there is the Backers you know the 6'4" 250 lb violent-type is what the Steelers covet they too need to standout both against the run and the pass rush. Both DT/DE Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt are studs but they need help.

Inside Backers Lawrence "Law-Dawg" Timmons and Ryan Shazier must wreak havoc in the middle of the field and they need help from the boys up front. Jarvis Jones (Who the Steelers did not pick up his 4th year option) and Bud Dupree must be the Red Jersey Collectors they were drafted to be as #92 who needs no intro will be a 3rd down pass rush specialist.

Let's take a look at the 2K16 Projected Starters for the Black and Yellow on "D" and also who to watch out for on the depth chart!

Projected Starters 

3-4 Zone Blitz 

LDE "Lil Ironhead" Heyward
NT Dan McCullers
RDE Stephon Tuitt

LOLB Bud Dupree
LILB Ryan Shazier
RILB Law-Dawg Timmons
ROLB Jarvis Jones

LCB William Gay
SS Sean Davis *
FS Mike Mitchell
RCB Artie Burns **

* Steelers 2K16 2nd Rd Pick Davis from the Fighting Turtles of College Park, MD should beat out former Steelers 3rd Rd Pick Shamarko Thomas of Syracuse as Thomas' Lights have not come on yet and he will stay in the dark and on special teams...

** Steelers 2k16 1st Rd Pick Burns from the "U" is a long and lanky athletic Island that has a shot of beating out Cockrell. A Rookie Island going up against players like WR Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton everyday in practice might speed Burns up and it should... 

360 Degrees Steelers 2K16 3rd Rd Pick Javon Hargrave has a chance to be really good and he should be in the mix and get plenty of reps with the ones in camp. 

Backers...the most depth on the Steelers Squad every season as Arthur Moats and Vince Williams provides quality depth behind Shazier and Timmons. Watch both 2K16 late round picks Travis Feeney (Washington Huskies) and Tyler Matekevich (Temple Owls) as they should be making "Splash Plays" throughout Camp as they are currently 3rd on the depth chart and must work to make Special Teams...  

Secondary...has been explained but do not forget 2K15 2nd rounder Senquez Golson from Ole' Miss who sat out last season after shoulder surgery. A bump and run delight and a ball hawk as he should be in the mix for a dime and nickel package coverage... Robert Golden the back up FS is solid and Captain of the Special Teams and he is going nowhere!    

Keith Butler will be in his 2nd season calling the shots and Coach Tomlin (A DB Coach by trade) will be assisting current Steelers DB Coach Carnell Lake in getting the young DBs set to go for 2k16...believe that!
