    Bruce Davis - DE - 3rd round, 88th overall selection

    I was kind of hoping for Dre Moore at this spot but we'll see how he grades out.

    Looks like he's going to be an OLB for us, he played DE at UCLA in a 43 there but he's built for a 34 OLB.

    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Defensive End/Outside Linebacker
    6' 3" 252 lbs.

    He's the prototypical pass rushing OLB in our 34 scheme.

    Kind of an odd pick though but I can see where they want to build up young pass rushers because we have no OLB depth behind Silverback and Wood.

    too many of his highlights are him recovering fumbles caused by other players.

    where are u gettin that weight...ESPN has him at 229....they could be thinking about moving Harrison to the inside.....Farrior doesnt have much time left....and even Harrison isnt that young.

    Strengths:
    Very athletic...Good timed speed...Outstanding quickness with a burst to close...A terror off the edge...Very active with a non-stop motor...A team leader with great intangibles...Rangy and makes plays in pursuit...Versatile and has played both DE and OLB...Extremely productive..Would dominate games at times...Nice Bloodlines.

    Weaknesses:
    Vastly undersized and desperately needs to bulk up..A liability versus the run and struggles to hold his ground or get a push...Strength is well below average...One trick pony with a meager pass rush repertoire...He racked up a lot of his numbers against weak opponents...Struggles to shed....A 'tweener without a true position.

    Notes:
    Father, who's also named Bruce, played at UCLA and was a member of two Super Bowl championship teams as an offensive tackle...Uncle Ronnie also played for the Bruins...A one-dimensional pass rush specialist who will probably have to move to outside linebacker at the next level...Great college player who doesn't project well to the pros...Needs to land in the right situation and best shot may come in a 3-4.

    Just heard NFLN talking about it and they have him listed at 250 lbs.

    ESPN sucks dude, watch NFL.com for better player bio's and updated stats

    Davis is "PURE ATHLETE" ......If people can be patient with this guy .... he'll be every bit of a force for the Steelers as he was for UCLA. Front office thinking "future" on this pick ... 2-3 year project. However, he'll bolster the ST's unit immediately.
