Is it too early to call Pittsburgh Steelers sophomore Jarvis Jones a bust?

If I’m being honest, I’ve never been a big Jarvis Jones fan. I thought in college he was a much better pass-rusher than run defender and was more of an opportunistic player than one who created plays for himself.

Jarvis Jones Can Improve His Speed By Slowing Down The Game

Many observers, both fans and outsiders of the Pittsburgh Steelers, have raised questions about the speed—or the seeming lack of speed—of the team’s 2013 first-round draft pick, outside linebacker Jarvis Jones.

"We didn't even interview Jarvis," says Pittsburgh Steelers GM

It's an inexact science regarding the NFL Draft and how teams end up drafting their players. In 2013, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected linebacker Jarvis Jones in the first round and running back Le'Veon Bell in the second. We didn't even interview Jarvis (Jones) down here (NFL Combine), said Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert. We didn't think we had a realistic ...
