Draft 2014

Pick No.46

Selected By: Pittsburgh Steelers

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 14 (46)

Pick Analysis: His name is pronounced "stuh-FON TOO-it." Highly recruited out of Georgia. As a true freshman in 2011, played nine games (three starts) and collected 30 tackles, three tackles for loss and two sacks with one pass batted. All non-starts were coach's decisions. Moved into a starting defensive end role in '12, tallying 47-13-12 with one pass batted, three forced fumbles and one blocked kick in 13 starts. Returned a fumble 77 yards for a touchdown against Navy. Required offseason surgery to repair a hernia. In '13, he started all 13 games and had 49-9-7.5 with two passes batted, one interception and one forced fumble. Picked off an errant pass in the end zone for a touchdown against Michigan. Pulled out of NFL Scouting Combine drills after a medical scan revealed a Jones fracture in his left foot, necessitating surgery performed March 1 that restricted him from working out at his pro day.
