Steelers take Miami LB in third round



The Steelers concluded their second day of the NFL draft by choosing Miami linebacker Sean Spence on the third round Friday night.

The draft will continue Saturday with rounds four through seven, starting at noon.

The Steelers consider Spence an inside linebacker although he played on the outside at Miami. He is 5-11, 231 pounds. He started 40 games at Miami over four seasons.

"You look at James Farrior, he played the last four, five years at 230 pounds, maybe 225," said Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler.
