Ryan Mundy grew up playing right in the heart of Pittsburgh Steelers country, and the safety will now get a chance to play for that NFL team after being picked on Day Two of the NFL Draft

Mundy, who played his high school football at Woodland Hills in Pittsburgh before moving on to college at Michigan and West Virginia, was selected in the sixth round with the 194th overall pick by the Steelers. A big safety with good cover skills and an excellent feel for the game, Mundy hopes to follow other Mountaineers, such as Mike Logan, who have had success with the NFL franchise that is closest to WVU's campus.

Pittsburgh's roster currently shows four safeties combined at the strong and free positions. Mundy could play either of those spots, but might be a better fit at free early in his career.

Safeties on the Steelers' roster include Troy Polamalu, Anthony Smith, Tyrone Carter and Ryan Clark.
