Jon Beason didn't even make the board when SteelCityInsider.com first posted it's opening odds on the Steelers first draft pick. But a month has passed and opinions have changed. Here's why:
Beason is built like a house and can drive through defenders, "wrote Nolan Nawrocki, one of my favorite draftniks. "He has shown he could play inside or outside and hails from a program known for producing stud 'backers."
That was published in Pro Football Weekly in December. And this was uttered by my favorite draftnik, Mike Mayock, during his pre-combine conference call: "Jon Beason is under some people's radar, but he might be the best linebacker in the draft."
