Only 76 more days until the highly anticipated 2019 NFL Draft commences. Before the big day arrives, we continue to dive into potential first-round picks the Pittsburgh Steelers could draft come April.

Next up, Devin White (LB) LSU.

The uncertainty of Ryan Shazier’s football career is still looming in Pittsburgh, so their need for some more inside linebacker presence is apparent. White was the 2018 Butkus Award winner for top linebacker and ran a 4.54 40-yard dash at 240 pounds. Sports Illustrated has White as their 1st ranked draft-eligible inside linebacker. Check out his 2018 stats here:

White has exceptional ball pursuit skills, is a phenomenal physical tackler, and is known for his monster hits. The Steelers would be lucky to have him fall all the way to 20th in the Draft as he could easily be a top-10 pick.
