PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – 93-7 The Fan Steelers insider and Post-Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette joined The Fan Morning Show on Friday to break down the NFL Draft.

The Steelers selected Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones with the 17th overall pick in Thursday night’s first round, and Bouchette applauded them for deciding to take Jones despite his poor combine performance.

“The Steelers not only showed patience- they showed they want a football player,” Bouchette said.

He also looked forward to the second round, and said that he hopes the Steelers use their next pick to improve their ground game.

“I prefer to see them take a running back,” Bouchette said. “If I were running the show, running back seems to me to be a more vital need than a wide receiver.”

He does expect that area to be addressed this weekend, though.

“They’ll get some kind of wide receiver here to help them out,” Bouchette said. “They may even get a tight end eventually, although I really don’t see the big need for a tight end.”
