Default Neat story on sixth round pick Mundy

From the Tribune

As a youngster, Ryan Mundy played for a Pee Wee Football team called the West Pittsburgh Steelers.

And to hear him reflect on those carefree days, it's hard to tell what was more fun for him: playing in the games or donning his No. 34 jersey and football pants on autumn Sundays and collecting donations outside of Three Rivers Stadium before the, uh, other Steelers games.

"Those are very good memories I have of my childhood," Mundy said.

More than a decade later, Mundy will try to complete the circle that started when he and his pint-sized teammates hit up tailgaters for extra change and collected one trophy after another.

The Steelers picked the Woodland Hills graduate in the sixth round of the NFL Draft on Sunday. He has a good chance of making the team given his size and smarts, not to mention the uncertainty the Steelers have at free safety.

The Steelers used its final draft pick on Mundy, and not long after it made him the 194th overall selection, he got a congratulatory text message from Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley, his close friend from when they played together at Michigan.

One thing that stands out about Mundy, who was an honors student in college, is his aptitude on the field. He picked up the system at West Virginia quickly enough to start right away, and he doesn't figure to get overwhelmed by what he'll be required to learn during the Steelers' minicamp and OTA practices.

"This is a very, very intelligent kid," Colbert said of Mundy, who also will be a candidate to play special teams, "a very mature kid that will have a nice chance to make this team."

The Steelers' situation at free safety is a murky, with Ryan Clark coming back from a serious illness and Anthony Smith trying to bounce back after regressing at the end of last season.

"I'll do," Mundy said, "whatever I can to get on the field."
