    I've tried to keep my eye on him a bit because my brother-in-law is an FSU alum and raves about him. Early on he was mostly projected to go in the top 5, and then seemed to fall off the map. He was a 4-3 DE at FSU, but looks to have the size and speed and playmaking ability to make the transition to 3-4 OLB. He has only been playing football for about 4 years as he is of German descent and began when he arrived in the U.S.

    Yup the 2 target thing is a joke. I can assure you they have 17 targets.

    1) Takarist Mckinnley-OLB-UCLA
    2) Pat Mahommes_QB-TT
    3) Rasul Douglass-CB-WVU
    4) Samaje Perine-RB-OU
    5) Bryan Cox-Edge-Florida
    5c) Jalen-Reeves-Maybin-ILB-Tennessee
    6) Akhello Weatherspoon-CB-Colorado
    7) Billy Butler-TE-Shepherd

    It is going to be a fun night (I hope)

    If you believe some board posters, that's not what the Steelers want from their DL so it would be a wasted pick.....

    Bjoern Werner would be a steal at 17.

    yup, and after the Saints picked Vaccaro at #15 it made it easy for the Steelers.

    this pick also tells you the Steelers either aren't fully sold on Jason Worilds or are possibly considering cutting Lamarr Woodley next year if he has another lackluster season.
