Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: DE Ziggy Hood has "no holes" according to coach Mike Tomlin. The Steelers have not failed with their first-round draft pick since Kevin Colbert took over as their personnel boss in 2002 and it looks as though he has another hit. The Steelers loved Hood from the start and he should be a perfect fit for their 3-4 and a starter by 2010 at defensive end. A closer look at the Steelers' picks: Round 1/32 -- Evander "Ziggy" Hood, DE, 6-3, 300, Missouri...First defensive end drafted on the first round by the Steelers since Aaron Jones in 1988 and first defensive lineman drafted in the top three rounds since Casey Hampton. The Steelers needed to replenish their aging line. - by The Sports Xchange
