Steelers Take Jordan Zumwalt in 6th Round, Outside Linebacker from UCLA

Going into the 2014 NFL Draft, Steel Curtain Rising rated outside linebacker as the Steelers 4th most important position of need. The decision to pick Ryan Shazier could have signaled a desire to address that need, but Kevin Colbert immediately announced that Shaizier would play on the inside.
  • In the 6th round, however, the Steelers did take UCLA’s outside linebacker Jordan Zumwalt. 
Here’s a brief look at Zumwalt’s careeer highlights via YouTube:

(One has to wonder who prepares these things some times. The first 30 seconds show Zumwalt hot dogging and celebrating, and then tagging a fallen quarterback to record a sack, its not until the video approaches a full minute that he starts making plays.)

Zumwalt comes to one of the thinner areas on the Steelers depth chart, where Arthur Moats and Chris Carter are the only experienced backups – provided the Steelers do not bring back James Harrison for a final year, as was rumored earlier in the off season.
