Tim Benz, Joe Rutter discuss the Steelers’ selection of Devin Bush
In Thursday’s NFL Draft, the Steelers did what so many people hoped they would do. They traded up to draft Michigan inside linebacker Devin Bush.
For Friday’s Sided.co podcast, Steelers beat writer Joe Rutter joins me to talk about how general manager Kevin Colbert made the deal with Denver, what he will do next and why Bush is being leveraged as justification for the Antonio Brown trade.
Bush appears to be the answer to replace Ryan Shazier. We discuss his strengths and weaknesses. The strengths appear to be smarts, instinct and athleticism.
The weaknesses are size — and maybe not much else.
A lot happened to allow the Steelers to make the move. Joe and I try to figure out some of the moments within the top nine that paved the way.
Then we kick around ideas as to what the Steelers may do with their two third-round picks Friday. Might they trade into the second round again?
