Steelers LB Devin Bush draws praise from fellow 1st-rounder Devin White
In Tuesday’s “Breakfast With Benz” podcast, I speak with linebackers Devin White and Devin Bush.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers first-round draft choice, White will forever be linked with Bush, the Steelers’ first-rounder. Same name. Same draft class. Same position.
For the entire draft process, they were discussed as if they were one entity: “The Devins.”
The whole world knew that anyone who needed an inside linebacker was going to draft one or the other before any third player at the position was going to be selected.
And it was pretty clear neither was going to make it out of the top 10.
Tampa and the Steelers made that happen, when the Bucs nabbed White at No. 5 out of LSU and the Steelers selected Bush at No. 10.
The players were on the same field in the preseason opener Friday night during the Steelers’ 30-28 win, and they discuss their friendship in this podcast.
White gushes about what he saw from Bush: 10 tackles, a fourth-down stop and a near pick-6.
Bush couldn’t return the compliments quite as much. After all, White barely played more than a series. But he echoed White’s sentiments about their relationship and their hopes to thrive on parallel tracks in the NFL.
