    Good stuff on Ryan Shazier

    Pittsburgh Steelers snag Ryan Shazier at No. 15


    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...gn=Twitter_atl

    This is one of our favorite of Thursday night's picks. Faced with an aging defense lacking playmakers, the Steelers staved off Father Time by landing a player with the talent for perennial Pro Bowl berths.

    The fastest linebacker to enter the NFL since Brian Urlacher was a freakishly talented safety at New Mexico, Shazier can play inside or outside. He will likely be ticketed for the spot next to Lawrence Timmons, giving Pittsburgh the league's most dynamic inside-linebacker duo.

    Good point.

    But as fast as the Steelers got that pick in, I don't think they were looking to trade down.

    143 tackles last season, 6th nationally. 101 solo tackles, 3rd nationally. We haven't had that production at ILB since Farrior.

    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    "Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

    Sometime you just have to trust our GM over Mel Kiper or M Mayock. They have done their research and believe it or not know more than you and me.
