Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com believes the Pittsburgh Steelers could be targeting Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones in this year’s draft. Their target very well could be Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones. The Steelers hosted Jones earlier this month, and he’d be an intriguing option with the 17th overall pick.  If he lasts that long. Like so many other first-round prospects, it’s hard to gauge precisely where Jones will go.  A case of spinal stenosis has created concerns about the possibility of a serious neck injury, but Jones has received full medical clearance — and he has performed well in the SEC (a/k/a NFL Lite) after a transfer from USC. Jones makes a lot of sense for the Steelers.  He would be the ideal replacement for James Harrison.  With Harrison gone, acquiring a pass rusher should be a top priority for Pittsburgh.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
