The Pittsburgh Steelers are scheduled to visit with Ohio St. LB Ryan Shazier.

Footballguys View: Shazier is projected to go in the late first round by many analysts, so the Steelers know if they want him, they will probably have to take him with the No. 15 pick in the draft. Shazier is a versatile back who can rush the passer, drop into coverage and stop the run. He is a bit lean and needs to play a bit more disciplined, but could be a good fit for this defense.
