Devin Bush Stats
Devin Bush appeared in 32 games over his career at Michigan. Bush was a two-year starter and named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and a Consensus All-American in the 2018 season. In his two seasons as a full-time starter, Bush averaged 80.5 tackles, five sacks and just over nine tackle for loss per season as a constant presence in the opposition's backfield.
Bush started at inside linebacker for most of his collegiate career. He has excellent mobility and an explosive first step that should allow him to see continued success shooting the gap at the next level. Bush was solid in both blitzing and coverage responsibilities, and he should be a versatile linebacker in the NFL as a player who is well-suited for many modern-day defenses.

Devin Bush Draft Prediction
Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 20), Baltimore Ravens (No. 21)
The Steelers need to find a long-term replacement at inside linebacker for Ryan Shazier, and Bush has the potential to be a three-down linebacker. If the Steelers decide to use their pick on a skill player to replace one of their disgruntled stars, don't be surprised if the divisional rival Baltimore Ravens snag Bush with the very next pick.
