I don't get it either. James Harrison didn't start until 26. Jones will turn 24 this year and people act like he's 34.

Silverback wasn't a 1st Round pick

24 years old. He's got plenty of fuel in the tank. People nitpick the stupidest things.

Don't worry, everyone nitpicking now will be wearing his jersey soon. Jones has been training with Ike Taylor for a while and he wanted to be a Steeler. He will be the next great OLB.

I'm no fan of the SEC, but the SEC is the best conference in college football right now and they have been for awhile. This guy put up great stats against top caliber teams. He was a disruptive force making tackles for loss and getting sacks. I was practically begging for the Steelers to pick him when "THE PICK IS IN" came across at #17. With Harrison gone, Worilds a bit of an unproven commodity, and Woodley playing like garbage last season we needed a guy like Jones to come in and compete for a starting job or at least push guys like Worilds and Woodley into being more productive. Not sure why everyone is crying about them not going offense with the first pick.

Still on the board

Justin Hunter,
Terrance Williams
Robert Woods
Keenan Allen
LeVeon Bell
Montee Ball
Eddy Lacy
Marcus Lattimore

Still a good amount of quality players left with some of them being guys that had 1st Round Projections. We'll get the offense shored up but the Steelers would've been making a huge mistake had they not chosen Jones at #17.

Heck to be completely honest I wouldn't mind seeing them go defense again in the 2nd Round. We need playmakers. We need guys that can create fumbles, grab interceptions, and cause quarterbacks to make mistakes. Our offense will be better this year with a year under their belt in Haley's system. We need to get the defense shored up so we can get turnovers and give the offense more opportunities.
