The Steelers met with Zumwalt at the Combine. Oddly enough, Shazier said that he already had a visit with the Steelers. I know a lot of energy goes towards the Steelers taking a tall WR or the top CB available in round one, but don’t be surprised if Shazier is the Steelers first pick.
Zumwalt is a bit over aggressive at times, and will need to add weight to his 6’4″ frame when he gets to the NFL. He’s likely a mid round prospect. Here’s a gif of him cleaning Logan Thomas’ clock.
Here’s Shazier and Zumwalt sharing a table at Primanti Bros.
Deone Bucannon might be one of the hardest hitting safeties in this draft class. I could probably fill this post with youtube “hit clips” featuring him drilling someone. While being known as a violent hitter, he also has a nose for the ball. The former Washington State defensive back had 15 interceptions during his career there. Here’s a couple games of him in action. Thanks for stopping by, and as always, share with your friends.
