Steelers draft LB Mike Humpal in 6th round of draft
The Steelers drafted LB Mike Humpal with 22nd pick in the 6th round of the 2008 NFL draft. Humpal was the 188th pick overall and the first of two 6th round picks the Steelers have. Played 4 years at linebacker at Iowa. Led in tackles, makes good reads, not good upper body strength and needs to get stronger. Has good speed and is a great leader, Humpal will likely compete for a roster spot and try to contribute on special teams. 50/50 shot to make the Steelers opening day roster.
