Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia Bulldogs (6-3, 241 pounds)

After struggling to pressure the quarterback in 2012 and getting rid of outside linebacker James Harrison, the Steelers grab Jarvis Jones to fill the void.  A strong and powerful pass rusher with the burst to beat the offensive tackle around the corner and the speed to close on the quarterback in a flash, Jones has the talent to be an impact edge rusher.  Playing Jones opposite Woodley will improve their pass rush and likely help Woodley get back to his previous high level of production.
