    Zuwalt

    04/29/2014 - Five players who should be on Pittsburgh's draft radar: LB Jordan Zumwalt, UCLA: Inside linebacker won't be listed as the top need on any lists out there, but in the mid-to-late rounds, Zumwalt has the intensity and versatility that screams Steelers. He has experience playing inside and outside and would provide depth at several linebacker spots for Pittsburgh. Zumwalt plays fast, active and aggressive, but also stiff and is more of a straight-line athlete who struggles to easily redirect. He has an intense on-field demeanor and to describe him as "violent" would be an understatement, but he also comes with durability concerns due to his physical play style. Zumwalt projects as a versatile reserve player who is able to wear several hats in various schemes and should be able to make a living on special teams coverages as well, making him a logical target in the fourth or fifth round.

    Just watched the clip and sadly, this kind of play is only going to get flagged constantly in the NFL.

    It's something he's going to really need to work on. I didn't know him when he was picked so I went back and watched a few games of his. He tends to lead with his head a lot. I've seen a lot of helmet to helmet hits with him.

    He's going to have to work on his tackle technique and get rid of that silly slicing the throat thing when he makes a huge play.

    That will easily be a 15 yarder.

    I would think this leads to Sylvester being shown the door(even if it's just dumping salary).
