Out of nowhere, Brugler tagged Pryor to the 15th overall pick, giving the Steelers their first safety drafted in the first round since Troy Polamalu in 2003.
Polamalu went No. 16 overall. No pressure, Mr. Pryor.
The Steelers need to find the long-term replacement for free agent Ryan Clark at free safety and Pryor has the versatile skill-set to play the deep half of the field and attack the run.
Interestingly, wide receiver Mike Evans was still on the board when Brugler sent the second safety to Pittsburgh with a high pick in the last two years (the Steelers selected Shamarko Thomas in the fourth round last year). That move will likely wrankle the ire of many a draftnik, but if nothing else, it's a name we haven't seen yet.
