Shazier walks across stage, announces pick for Steelers

27 April 2018 06:16

Baker Mayfield may have earned the spotlight at the NFL Draft, but Ryan Shazier stole the show.

The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker made a miraculous walk across the stage to the podium on Thursday at AT&T Stadium to announce the team's first-round pick (number 28), making for one of the most memorable moments in draft history.

Shazier is still rehabbing from a serious spinal injury suffered in a December 4 game against the Cincinnati Bengals that required spinal stabilisation surgery and left him in a wheelchair.

Still, the setback has not stopped the two-time Pro Bowl player from attending various sporting events, including the Penguins' first-round Stanley Cup playoff games at PPG Paints Arena.

The 25-year-old will not play in 2018, but will remain a part of the team next season with the hope of eventually making a comeback from the injury.

The Steelers selected Terrell Edmunds, a safety out of Virginia Tech. His brother Tremaine, an offensive linebacker who also played at Virginia Tech, was selected by the Bills earlier with the number 16 overall pick.

"It's a blessing for my family, it's a blessing for my city, it's a blessing for my school," Terrell said on ESPN.

"I'm thankful for everyone supporting us along the way.

"I'm filling with so much excitement I can barely speak."

The pair made history by becoming the first brothers to both be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.
