    I watch all of the Buckeyes games and the guy is special. Never noticed him taking a wrong angle, but his speed could easily cover that up.

    I was so fixated on taking a CB and the fact that LB didnt seem to be a position of need that he never really crossed my mind. We could have done way worse, like picking that Ray Ray wanna be C.J. Mosley.

    I'm glad we didn't take Mosley. I liked him heading up to the draft but the more I learned about him the more the injury concerns scared me off. I don't know a lot about Shazier though. I can't help but think our Linebacker corps is gonna be special though.

    I live in Buckeye country. Shazier has great mobility and is capable in coverage (esp zone). He is a good blitzer and has elite closing speed. IMO, he has always looked like a safety in his uniform. I know he has bulked up to 237 and still run well. That is fantastic. But, I wonder if that weight is good weight (I have no idea). I believe he played most of his career between 210-225. I think (contrary to others) that this was a Dick LeBeau pick. He loves OSU (obviously) and probably pays closer attention to that program than any other. I believe Shazier probably would have been better served in 4-3 on the weak side. But, he is a Steeler now and I am happy to have another special athlete who can help us when we play pass heavy teams. Frankly, Shazier is so fast he could even play in our nickel or dime packages as a slot cover guy who takes on athletic split-out TEs. It will be interesting to see how he is deployed.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I am interested in seeing a defense with Timmons, Polamalu, Shamarko Thomas and Shazier on the field...

    That is a lot of fast guys...

    Big nickel package with Worilds and Jones on the edge...Heyward and McClendon lined up at DT...

    Timmons and Shazier at LB...

    Mitchell, Polamalu and Shamarko Thomas at S...

    And whichever two CBs work out the best (Taylor and Allen?)...

    I don't know a lot about the guy but I have to laugh as I read this thread. The people who aren't happy with the pick have used comparisons to Troy and Timmons to further their arguments. I'm not sure if anyone realizes this, but those two are not the comparisons I would use to support a theory of him being a bust.

    Counting on JJ is laughable. Shazier will be a better player, more flexible and more impactful than Jones. Mark it down.

    Totally agree with you that LeBeau had lots of say in this pick like he probably does every high defensive pick.
