Jarvis Jones

Position: OLB • Height: 6-2 • Weight: 245 • School: Georgia

About the pick: Was productive, pass-rushing defensive end at Georgia who will be used at right OLB. ... Led nation and set school record with 14 1/2 sacks in 2012. Had 28 sacks in two seasons with the Bulldogs, third best in school history. Also had 45 1/2 tackles for losses in his career and forced nine fumbles. Said general manager Kevin Colbert: "He's definitely one of the guys I talked about being a special player. He's productive at the major-college level; in fact, he's a dominant player." ... Ran 4.9 in the 40 at his pro day, likely dropping him from top 10 picks. That didn't bother the Steelers. ... Played mostly in two-point stance and also was used as kind of a rover back, making it easy to evaluate him as an outside linebacker.
