2014 NFL Draft First Round Grades: Pittsburgh Steelers

15th Overall Pick: Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio StateI wasn't quite sure where the Steelers were going with this selection, but I didn't expect Shazier to be the pick. I think this is a bit early for Shazier, who I pictured going in the 20s. He doesn't fill a huge need, but this will certainly help out the front seven. The Steelers have a great history of developing linebackers...

Welcome to NYC: Former Buckeye Shazier dismayed by prices

The former should happen for former Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier this weekend at the NFL Draft. The latter went down at a restaurant Tuesday night. Shazier, who is attending the draft in New York City, posted this photo...

Shazier had been held out of running the 40-yard...

Ohio State Football: Florida A&M preview

Definition of a tune-up game: Florida A&M at Ohio State Football. The undefeated Buckeyes (begrudgingly) play host to the 1-2 Rattlers on Saturday at noon in Ohio Stadium. On one hand, this game will be a good dress rehearsal before kicking off B1G Ten play next week. On the other hand, playing a FCS team and being favored by a hefty 57 points isn’t good for team morale. Braxton...

The ever-changing Ohio State linebacking corps will look different again Saturday at Penn State, though the latest tweak is different than the others. More meaningful, too.
