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 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.
