2014 NFL Draft Grade: Pittsburgh Steelers Select Ryan Shazier

The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Ryan Shazier with the 15th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

OVERALL GRADE

Another tough one to grade here, but I’ll give it a C. The Steelers are such an interesting team to pick because you just never know where they’ll go. Is this a surprise? You can weigh in below in the comments section.

WHY THIS PICK MIGHT WORK

People like Shazier, but I’m just not a fan. It’s hard to see a lot of upside right here, only because his 2013 tape was very rough. They need some speed and depth to that defense. I guess that’s what they’re going for here.

WHY THIS PICK COULD BE A BUST

This pick was TOO HIGH. Shazier shouldn’t have gone this high, and I’m concerned that the Steelers reached big time to sure up their defense here. What do you think fans? Do you think this could be a bust?

SURPRISE OR EXPECTED?

The Steelers are a team that never pick as planned. I feel that this was a bit of a surprise, but looking at Pittsburgh and the way they draft, you can never write anything in permanently. I like this pick and think that their AFC North rivals should be concerned.
