Study: What The Steelers Look For Drafting Inside Linebackers (2022)

One final draft study before we dive into this week’s events. In our last “what the Steelers look for” study of 2022, we’re taking a look at the off-ball linebackers. It’s been a few years since our last check-in, posting a study prior to the 2019 draft, one that included Devin Bush on the “one box away” list.

So we have several names to update. Once we do, we’ll re-evalute our criteria and thresholds, and see what players from this pool of prospects fit best.

Here’s every off-ball LB drafted under Mike Tomlin.

Height: 6004
