NASHVILLE (WXYZ) — Two of Michigan's best players are off the board. The Pittsburgh Steelers traded up to the 10th pick to select linebacker Devin Bush and defensive end Rashan Gary was taken two picks later by the Green Bay Packers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers traded up to the 10th pick in the first round of the NFL Draft to select Michigan linebacker Devin Bush.

Bush had 41 solo tackles and five sacks for the Wolverines in his final season. He didn't play in the team's bowl game to prepare for the NFL Draft.

He was also named the Big Ten defensive player of the year and was a 2-time Dick Butkus Award finalist and two-time All-Big Ten.

Bush pressured the quarterback on 29.8 percent of pass rushes last season, the highest in the Big Ten.

Gary had 20 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks in nine games for Michigan last season. A shoulder injury sidelined him for three games in the season and he also skipped the team's bowl game.
