Steelers selected Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Shazier (6-foot-1, 237) needed only three seasons in Columbus to total 44.5 tackles for loss, 14 sacks, and nine forced fumbles, with a 2013 first-team All-American berth and first-team All-Big Ten honors as both a sophomore and junior. A transcendent athlete, Shazier tallied a 42-inch vertical and 10-foot-10 broad jump at the Combine, before scorching a reported 4.38 forty at Ohio State's Pro Day. Shazier is a finesse linebacker -- not a thumper -- but is rangy enough to cover tailbacks and tight ends, and is a sideline-to-sideline missile in run defense. He's like a bigger, faster Derrick Brooks. Shazier should slot in next to Lawrence Timmons at inside linebacker in the Steelers' 3-4. An aging defense gets a much-needed youth infusion.
