With the 17th overall pick, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected Jarvis Jones, outside linebacker from Georgia.

Scouts believed that Jones would fall to a second day draft pick because of his poor showing at the combine, but the Steelers saw through the workout numbers and found a legitimate edge-rushing force.

Jones should immediately slot in as a starting outside linebacker, and continue to carry on the Steelers tradition of stellar defenders, most recently, James Harrison. Jones is excellent in pursuit, and shouldn't miss a beat at the next level. His only downside is conditioning and opposing team's ability to run directly at him.
