    They released Foote in March and he was signed by the Cardinals.

    I meant they signed Foote last season to fill a hole.

    I wasn't crazy about the pick but that said it has been a while since the Steelers have had two premier athletes at ILB...
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    The more I think about it, the more I like it. The guy was a tackling machine in a major conference for two years. And he runs sub 4.4! Clowney was drafted #1 basically on one year, and his athleticism.

    If Shazier isn't that level of athletic freak at his position, he's close.

Shazier and Timmons may have size, but if they don't get a NT to keep them clean, people will run all over this team.

    At least the Steelers didn't rush to the podium, but I think they could have traded down and still gotten Shazier. Or Mosley, a more solid overall linebacker.
    Maybe this makes Nix a target in the 2nd

    Was thinking the same thing. Maybe not Nix... maybe McLendon fills the role just fine. Or Fangupo. But with Shazier and Timmons (who isn't your classic run-stuffer; in many ways, another Shazier)... if we can let these guys run to the ball, our D will be fantastic!

    With Shazier's speed and explosion, could they move Jones inside and let Shazier play OLB, after his two year waiting period? (the waiting period comment is just for Ovi! )

    1.15) Ryan Shazier - ILB/OLB
    2.46) Stephon Tuitt - DE
    3.97) Dri Archer - RB
    4.118 ) Martavis Bryant - WR
    5.157) Shaquille Richardson - CB
    6.173) Wesley Johnson - OT
    6.192) Jordan Zumwalt - ILB
    7.215) Daniel McCullers - DT
    7.230) Rob Blanchflower - TE

    sounds like a typical cowboys bust of a pick
