The Pittsburgh Steelers have a few more draft hopefuls in town on Thursday and all three play on the defensive side of the football.
Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier headlines the list and is a prospect that very well could hear his name called in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Shazier best fits the Steelers as an inside linebacker and he’s certainly a three down player.
UCLA linebacker Jordan Zumwalt and Washington safety Deone Bucannon are also in town on Thursday.
Zumwalt is another inside linebacker prospect, but unlike Shazier, he is more of a two down player as he didn’t play much in sub packages at UCLA.
Bucannon is a downhill strong safety prospect that isn’t afraid to hit. He was a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award last season and led the Pac-12 in tackles.
