Steelers selected Georgia OLB Jarvis Jones with the No. 17 overall pick.
It's one of the few picks to go according to plan in one of the wildest drafts in recent memory. Jones (6-2, 245) led the nation in sacks (14.5) and tackles for loss (24.5) as a senior, and paced the SEC in forced fumbles (seven). He scared some evaluators with an early-career spinal condition and 4.92 forty time, but he's been cleared medically and his tape is too good to worry much about his straight-line long speed. Jones explodes off the ball and his motor is relentless. Although slightly undersized, Jones is a readymade 3-4 rush linebacker. He's an ideal replacement for James Harrison, and will be an immediate favorite for Defensive Rookie of the Year. Thu, Apr 25, 2013 10:15:00 PM
