The Pittsburgh Steelers showed last season that there are some holes to fill on this team. Despite coming back from a terrible start and nearly making the playoffs, this team needs some help and finding that help got a huge boost this weekend with their selections in the 2014 NFL Draft.
With some thinking the team might look for some offensive help in the first round, such as at the wide receiver position, in typical Steelers fashion, they went out instead and selected highly talented Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier to put into that Dick LeBeau defense, and he should make an immediate impact.
Here’s a complete look at the Steelers’ draft picks from the weekend.
|Rd 1 – #15(15)||Ryan Shazier (OLB) Ohio St|
|Rd 2 – #14(46)||Stephon Tuitt (DE) Notre Dame|
|Rd 3 – #33(97)||Dri Archer (RB) Kent St|
|Rd 4 – #18(118)||Martavis Bryant (WR) Clemson|
|Rd 5 – #17(157)||Shaquille Richardson (CB) Arizona|
|Rd 5 – #33(173)||Wesley Johnson (C) Vanderbilt|
|Rd 6 – #16(192)||Jordan Zumwalt (OLB) UCLA|
