Steelers Select Michigan LB Devin Bush In The First Round Of The 2019 NFL Draft

The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected Michigan linebacker Devin Bush with the 10th pick in the first-round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Steelers traded up 10 spots with the Denver Broncos to select Bush. It cost them their first-round selection, 20th overall, their second-round selection, the 52nd overall pick and a third-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Bush, who declared for the 2019 NFL Draft as an underclassman in December, recorded 191 total tackles, 1 interception, 10 sacks and 14 total pass breakups in the 38 games he played in at Michigan. 19 of his tackles resulted in lost yardage. He was named the 2018 Nagurski-Woodson Defensive Player of the Year by the Big 10 conference as well as the Butkus-Fitzgerald Linebacker of the Year. Below are his season-by-season grades that PFF has on Bush.

The underclassman measured in at this year’s scouting combine at 5110, 234-pounds. He ran his 40-yard-dash in Indianapolis in 4.43-seconds and posted a 40.5-inch vertical jump.

Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler was the linebackers coach in Cleveland in 2001 and 2002, when Bush’s father, Devin Bush Sr, played safety for the Browns.
