most picks after the 3rd round are projects. this was more of a sleeper pick in the later rounds. not one to be used for the first 3 rounds. by the looks of it though piscitelli won't make it past the 2nd round anyway. i prefer drafting LBs in college to play LBs in the NFL. i dislike the DEs trying to make the change to LB in the pros.
random fact for fun - the steelers have only drafted a LB in the first round twice in it's NFL history. they were robin cole and huey richardson.
