Tomlin happy with cornerback Ross Cockrell's evolution

PITTSBURGH (AP) Mike Tomlin is not a big picture guy. The Pittsburgh Steelers coach, as he likes to say, prefers not to "paint with a broad brush."

Only when the season is over will Tomlin widen out the lens. Still, even with a month to go Tomlin acknowledged the responsibilities placed on cornerback Ross Cockrell have been borderline unfair. Signed off the waiver wire in the summer of 2015, Cockrell has rapidly evolved into Pittsburgh's equivalent of a shutdown corner, a spot he earned through a combination of merit and attrition.

And one in which Cockrell has largely thrived. The latest proof came last Sunday, when Cockrell and rookie first-round pick Artie Burns helped keep New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in check for large portions of a 24-14 win that kept Pittsburgh (7-5) tied for first in the AFC North.
