Evander "Ziggy" Hood is all smiles after being introduced as the Steelers 32nd overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft back in April

The Steelers today came to terms in principle on a five-year contract with first-round draft choice Ziggy Hood.
Monetary terms were unavailable. Hood, a defensive end from Missouri, will sign the contract later this week.
Hood is only the fourth first-round NFL draft pick to come to terms, and when he signs his agreement, the Steelers will have all of their nine draft choices under contract. All 80 players on their roster will be under contract as well.
