The Pittsburgh Steelers have to be feeling a little better with Jarvis Jones coming ou of the hospital with clean X-rays. Jones is the new play maker on the Steelers defense. He is a big hitter who the team is going to need coming into the 2013 season.
With the aging Steelers defense, Jones brings a spark of youth to the team. He is the big-play maker the Steelers needed coming into the 2013 season. He made some big plays in the game against the Chiefs and those are the kind of plays the Steelers will be county on him to make during the regular season.
The Steelers have had some tough luck with top picks in the past couple of drafts. Last year they lost their offensive lineman David DeCastro went down with a knee injury in the preseason. DeCastro is being tagged as the most improved offensive lineman in 2013.
The Steelers are going to need his help this season too. Protecting the quarterback is a top priority this season and if they can do that and count on Jones to make some big defensive plays this season the Steelers just might find a way to be competitive this season.
Jones and DeCastro are part of the new Steelers youth movement and you can bet the team is going to be on the lookout for players like them in the next few NFL drafts.
