2014 NFL Draft Round 1: Pittsburgh Steelers Select LB Ryan Shazier

And the pick is in. With the 15th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft your Pittsburgh Steelers have selected linebacker Ryan Shazier out of Ohio State. The pick comes as somewhat of a surprise as it seemed as though the Steelers were looking towards a cornerback for their first round pick initially. Proves you never really know how it’s all going to play out.

Ryan Shazier is originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He ran a 4.38 40 yard dash and did 25 reps on the bench press. He’s 6’1”, 237lbs and did 25 reps on the bench press. Shazier was a first team All-American last year for Ohio State recording 144 tackles and seven sacks. Should be interesting to see how he fits into the Steelers defense.
