Drafting linebackers in the first round is becoming a predictable course for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have big plans for Ryan Shazier and Jarvis Jones. Still, there's a need for a pocket-popping force in the new-look 3-4 and coach Mike Tomlin thinks this class has them in spades.
Few teams are more successful in the first round than the Steelers. Expect that success to continue with Jarvis Jones, a perfect schematic and personality fit who could contend for Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.
The Minnesota Vikings were the big winners of the first round but the 49ers, Rams, Steelers and Bengals also made moves that could pay off immediately. Which teams, on the other hand, made head-scratching picks in the top 32? Rob Rang grades each selection of the first round.
Ben Roethlisberger's best weapon entering the draft is former sixth-round pick WR Antonio Brown. With no cap space to shop bargains in free agency, GM Kevin Colbert is on the spot to deliver in spades in 2013.
