Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier To Have Pre Draft Visit With Steelers

The pre draft visits are in full swing for the Pittsburgh Steelers and now we can add another Ohio State player to list of those scheduled to come to the Southside.

On Monday, Fox Sports 1 reporter Alex Marvez reported that Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier will make his way to Pittsburgh for a pre-draft visit this month.

At his March Pro Day, Shazier reportedly ran a  4.36 (unofficial) 40-yard dash after being unable to run at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine because of a hamstring injury. Also at the combine, Shazier measured in 6-foot-1 and 237 pounds and had a vertical jump of 42″ and a 10’10” broad jump.

In 2013, Shazier had 23.5 tackles for loss and 144 total tackles to go along with seven sacks. Many view him as a first-round prospect that could slip into the second round.

Earlier in the week, Shazier’s teammate, cornerback Bradley Roby, also announced that he would be coming to Pittsburgh for a pre draft visit as well. I am sure defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is making sure these players from his alma mater are taken well care of.
