NFL Draft Rumors: Ryan Shazier not making it past Dolphins at #19

The Packers and Dolphins need help at linebacker, and Ohio State's Ryan Shazier could be the guy they target.

The Cincinnati Bengals may be interested in drafting Ohio State's Ryan Shazier, but so are several other teams in the first round, and the Miami Dolphins and Green Bay Packers are two other teams to watch out for.

Bill Huber of the Packer Report believes Shazier isn't making it past the Dolphins at pick No. 19, but if he did, the Packers would love to get him at No. 21:

A very productive backer with the Buckeyes, Shazier registered 115 tackles (17 TFLs) with  five sacks, 11 pass breakups, an interception touchdown and three forced fumbles in 2012. He followed that up with 134 stops (22.5 TFLs) with six sacks, four pass breakups and four forced fumbles.

The Bengals 'appear' to be down to him or his Buckeyes teammate in Bradley Roby. The odds look to be against Shazier being on the board for Cincinnati at pick No. 24.
