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.
