Pittsburgh Steelers

Perfect draft pair: Temple LB Haason Reddick (Round 1, pick 30); Ashland TE Adam Shaheen (Round 2, pick 62)

Jeremiah on Reddick: Reddick is a classic Pittsburgh Steeler. He's instinctive, tough and physical. He's versatile, too. He can play with his hand down or stand up and play outside linebacker. I think his home, especially in the Steelers' scheme, is at inside linebacker. He was outstanding at the Senior Bowl. He's a plug-and-play guy.

Brooks on Shaheen: The Steelers need someone big on the inside who can affect the passing game. Shaheen can run like the wind. He's a physical blocker. He's a Steeler-type of player. Shaheen is physical, aggressive and has nice hands.
