He does not have the hair, but in many other ways Minkah Fitzpatrick is a reincarnation of former Steelers great Troy Polamalu. Not only does Fitzpatrick display the same knack for game-changing plays, but the coaching staff used him in a similar fashion as well. Fitzpatrick is officially listed as a free safety but his skill set allows the coaching staff to move him around, putting him in position to take advantage of matchups and allowing Fitzpatrick to be aggressive. Even as a newcomer to the team starting in week three, he was able to parlay the opportunity and freedom into nine turnovers and a pair of scores for the Steelers. As was the case with Polamalu, Fitzpatrick's tackle production may be sparse at times, leading to an issue of week to week inconsistency, but he will have a lot of big games along the way. (May 13)
