The Pick: William Gholston / DE / Michigan State
Michigan State defensive end William Gholston has the name that many NFL fans know, and that means people are pushing him up boards. But in reality, Gholston has a ways to go before he's ready to be an impactful NFL player.
That's not to say Gholston isn't talented.
For a guy who comes in at 6'7", 280 pounds, Gholston has flashed a great combo of agility and power. And despite the fact that he tallied 10 sacks over three years with the Spartans, he raked in an impressive 30 tackles for loss, 29 coming in his last two seasons.
Gholston grades out best as a five-technique end in the NFL, and could be a good fit for the Steelers, who are lacking depth at that position. Ziggy Hood is in a contract year, Brett Keisel is aging and Cameron Heyward has yet to make an impact.
This would be a bit of a project for the Steelers and Gholston will have to add weight, but he could pay off in the future.
