Personally, I would love that pick (3-4 OLB or better yet 4-3 DE) however if the Steelers are "drooling" in public you can be assured they have no plans to take him.
Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!
Steelers 2014 Draft

Can we afford two ZIGGY'S on the team? JK
He looks to be a promising prospect for the NFL, cool name too.... Ezekial Ansah.

I'd consider trading up to get him if it's possible. People compare him to JPP, but I think he's got the frame to get even bigger and think he could turn into a more athletic version of Richard Seymour who can line up all over the place to create mismatches.
Use him at DE on passing downs. Try him at OLB. Even put him on the nose.
I think this could could be the most versatile player in the draft giving you so much flexibility in your front 7. Lebeau could effective have 3 roving players on D that you never know what they're gonna do in Troy, Timmons, and Ansah.
Ziggy is the Ansah to all this team's problems.
Isn't he a little older than most prospects? That's not the Steelers M.O. to pick older guys.
Schiavone's Race Career:
I didn't realize this one. Not a young junior, so not realistically on Colbert's board. But I think you'd have to take a hard look at him at 17 if he drops that far because he's so natural. His age might play to his advantage. Otherwise, he might be a top 5-10 pick.
He doesn't fit the profile at all. With that said the Steelers would be foolish to pass on him. He will be the real deal.
Walter Football shows that the Steelers have indeed met with Ansah at the combine. Here's a short list of prospects they've interviewed and shown interest in up til now....
Ezekiel Ansah, DE/OLB, BYU (COM)
John Cooper, G, North Carolina (COM)
Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma (COM)
Interestingly enough, they haven't interviewed Warmack. I read an article yesterday that had some disappointed in him at weigh in because he was only 6'2".
