CBS give the selection of Ryan Shazier a B+ grade

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The CBS sports crew have given the Steelers a B+ grade for their selection of linebacker Ryan Shazier in the 2014 nfl draft.

CBS sports have given the Steelers a B+ grade for the selection of linebacker Ryan Shazier with the 15th overall pick in the NFL draft.

They have nothing but praise for the pick, focusing specifically on the athleticism and explosiveness of Shazier. In fact they suggest that he is a "Khalil Mack, Jadaveown Clowney type of athlete".

Like most of the reviews of Shazier, the word playmaker features prominently in the discussion as they note Shazier brings a level of athleticism to the Steelers defense that has been missing in recent times.

The CBS crew also note that the Steelers have needs at cb and wr but as they say, "if he's the guy, you get him".

Given that the Ravens selected another presumptive inside linebacker in CJ Mosely two picks later, it is likely both players will be compared early in their career. CBS gave the Ravens a B grade for their pick.
