Steelers' fourth-round pick is Tony Hills

After trading down in the fourth-round (with the New York Giants) the Steelers selected a left tackle prospect, Tony Hills, from the University of Texas. Hills has the size and athleticism to succeed at OLT in the NFL, but injuries are a major concern, as according to Pro Football Weekly, he "had a career-threatening drop foot condition in high school that nearly ended his career, and lingering effects still show up in his play. Does not have full motor skills in his left foot, and at times when he sets and plants ... his foot cannot withstand the pressure placed upon it and will go dead."
