Steelers take Ziggy Hood, a defensive tackle from Missouri. It's not sexy, but the defensive line needed an infusion of youth, and Alex Mack and Eric Wood were gone. Hood, by all accounts, fits the Steelers mold. He's an extremely hard worker and a high character guy. I kinda wish we would have grabbed Ebon Britton to replace Willie Colon, but I'm ok with this pick.
Here is the rundown on Hood:
Although Hood plays with a mean streak he lacks ideal lower-body strength, so he has some problems holding up when teams run at him when he?s lined up on the inside. That said, he's big and strong enough to set the edge as a 5-technique in a 3-4 scheme. He also has the quickness and motor to get to the quarterback on occasion.
