The Pittsburgh Steelers have struggled to replace the physicality Troy Polamalu brought to their defense, and it sounds like they are hoping Jabrill Peppers can bring it back.

NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert “loves” Peppers at the 30th overall pick in the NFL Draft. Peppers, a former Michigan star who played multiple positions, was once considered a lock to go early in the first round but has seen his stock tumble a bit. The Steelers are apparently hoping it tumbles just far enough.
