NFL Mock Draft 2012: Arizona State LB Vontaze Burfict Could Go To Steelers In First Round

The 2012 NFL Draft is fast approaching and the front offices are making their plans. The mock drafts by columnists and sportswriters are beginning to take shape and some Arizona St. Sun Devils players are popping up on many of them. One of the players drawing attention is Sun Devils linebacker Vontaze Burfict.

NFL website Titan Sized predicts that Burfict might be the No. 24 overall draft pick, which would send him to the Pittsburgh Steelers as their first round selection. Here is what they have to say:

24. Steelers - Vontaze Burfict, ILB, Arizona State

The Steelers’ defense is getting old and Burfict is a stud. He has the Steel Curtain attitude and would look just right in black and yellow. He hits hard and he runs fast, they will love him.
