Former Ohio State linebacker — and current Pittsburgh Steeler — Ryan Shazier walked to the stage at the NFL Draft Thursday night with his fiancé Michelle to announce the Steelers’ pick with the 28th selection of the first round.
Shazier is still recovering from a spinal injury that he suffered in a Week 13 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
He was at Ohio State’s spring game two weeks ago as an honorary coach, spending most of his time on the field in a golf cart.
This was Shazier’s first very public display of where his progress currently stands and it was a moment that those who saw it won’t soon forget.
