Yeah, Devin Bush was worth the No. 10 pick in April.
Bush was considered to be a first-round pick during the 2019 NFL Draft, but some might’ve thought the No. 10 pick was a little high for the “undersized” linebacker. But the former Michigan star and B1G Defensive Player of the Year proved his worth on Friday night.
In a preseason game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers, Bush was the talk of the night. The ex-Wolverine finished the night with a team-high 10 tackles, seven of which were solo stops.
Not a bad debut for the former standout in Ann Arbor.
Below are some of the highlights from Bush’s debut in Pittsburgh. He was all over the field:

Bush ended his Michigan career with 79 tackles, including nine stops for loss and five sacks. He also broke up six passes for the Wolverines.
At the end of a stellar campaign, he was named the B1G’s Linebacker and Defensive Player of the Year. Already, those accolades are translating to a strong early performance in the NFL.
If Friday night’s performance was any indication of what Bush can do in the NFL when the regular season comes around, the former Wolverine is in for a stellar season.
