With the 22nd pick, the Steelers selected linebacker Bud Dupree.
Continuing a youth movement on defense, the Steelers add a linebacker in Dupree that they hope can do better than former first round pick Jarvis Jones. Dupree had a very productive college career with excellent instincts. The knock on him was moving a little too slow during the action. But the former basketball player has the ability to be explosive.
For IDP purposes, another edge rusher that won’t mean much unless for big play leagues. Could contribute in pass protection as well.
