The 2019 NFL Draft took place on April 25 in Nashville. The biggest stars in college football took upon the stage to shake Roger Goodell’s hand and begin their NFL careers.

Going into the draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers were the 20th pick, and after trading with the Denver Broncos, they were able to move up to the 10th pick. This put them in the perfect spot to acquire a true impact player.

They drafted inside linebacker Devin Bush from the University of Michigan to fill the void that Shazier left when he got injured two seasons ago. Devin Bush stands 5-foot-11 and weighs 240 pounds and he makes up for his below average height with his speed and aggression.

At Michigan, he collected a total 91 solo tackles, 172 combined tackles, and 10 sacks. Bush comes from a Big 10 conference that demands a certain standard from a defensive player. This was proven in Shazier and will hopefully be followed up by the debut of Bush.

Bush has already begun to breathe in the Pittsburgh culture when he paid a visit to Primantis and made a classic ‘Pittsburgher’ sandwich. Bush is in the running to be a major star in a city who loves a strong defense every Sunday.
