These 5 NFL combine participants would be perfect fits for the Steelers
2) ILB Jack Campbell, Iowa
Maybe it's the name, Jack, as in Jack Lambert, that has me so excited that the Steelers may draft this guy. Jack Campbell (6-5, 249) is a little larger than Lambert (6-4, 220), and perhaps not quite as intimidating...at least not yet.
Campbell is a tackling machine (271 tackles over his last two seasons) with good coverage skills, and his height will definitely cause some problems for opposing quarterbacks. Initially, I had Clemson's Trenton Smith on my list of wanted inside linebackers, followed by Arkansas' Drew Sanders.
But the more I think about it, those guys are raw compared to the experienced Campbell, a four-year letterman and two-year starter for the Black & Gold of Iowa City. He was a first-team All-America selection, the winner of the Dick Butkus Award (Nation's Top Linebacker), and the Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Year as a senior.
The Steelers need help at inside linebacker, and Campbell's strong athletic performance at the combine (4.65 in the 40-yard dash, 37.5" vertical jump, 10'8" broad jump, 6.74 3-cone drill, and 4.24 20-yard shuttle) indicates that he would be a perfect fit.
