Woodley is going to look dominant once again. He really should be a 4-3 DE though.
Steelers 2014 Draft
1-Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
2-Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
3-Jordan Tripp ILB/OLB Montana
4-Christian Jones ILB Florida State
5-Brent Urban DE Virginia
5-Michael Schofield OG/OT Michigan
6-Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
6-Ben Gardner DE Stanford
7-Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma
We have no idea what the Steelers think, but it will unfold in the next few weeks. Their pick at 1.17 is going to shock the majority of this board, IMO.

Woodley is a stud. He'll be back to form. He's had injury issues throughout his career and as a result has been up and down. Either really good or really bad. Always comes up big in the big games.
I think injuries can be a bit of bad luck and some guys can get over the hump and be ok. We've had a lot of injured guys or guys coming back from major injury. I think we'll get our groove back and Woodley will be a big part of it. I believe in the guy. I'm not sure we have the whole story here.
Restructuring also ties the player and the team closer together, because it becomes more expensive in future years to cut that player. For example, had they not restructured Colon, it would be cheaper to cut him now.....nevermind the fact that they gave him a long term deal to begin with.
