Injured Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier limped slowly onto the stage at the NFL draft and announced Pittsburgh's first-round pick less than five months after a spine injury.

Shazier's appearance Thursday night was a surprise.

"That's a huge lift not only for him but for us Ryan Griffin Jersey ," Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said. "To see where he has come from to where he is and knowing where he might be able to go, it's beyond inspirational."

The Pro Bowl linebacker has already been ruled out for 2018 while recovering from spine stabilization surgery that has put his career in jeopardy. Shazier had surgery Dec. 6, two days after getting hurt in a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

After getting on stage and being introduced by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, fans inside AT&T Stadium gave Shazier strong applause. Shazier then called out the name of safety Terrell Edmunds of Virginia Tech, the 28th overall pick by the Steelers.

Edmunds' younger brother, linebacker Tremaine Edwards, also of Virginia Tech Nyheim Hines Jersey , was selected 16th overall by Buffalo. It's the first time brothers have gone in the first round of the same draft.

An Ohio State fan favorite, Shazier visited his alma mater's spring game two weeks ago and stood without assistance to cheers from the crowd.

Shazier, an honorary captain of one of the squads, drove a golf cart to midfield and climbed out to stand briefly to fire up the crowd. He then embraced the other honorary captain, former Ohio State cornerback and current Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.

The Baltimore Ravens signed offensive lineman James Hurst to a four-year contract Monday, keeping him off the free agent market while providing stability in front of quarterback Joe Flacco.

Hurst started all 16 games in 2017 Tony Romo Jersey , the fourth consecutive season he played in every game with Baltimore. He started at left guard in 15 games and at left tackle on Nov. 19 against Green Bay, subbing for the injured Ronnie Stanley.

Signed as a rookie free agent in 2014, the 26-year-old Hurst has been used at guard, tackle and on special teams.

"This is good news for our football team," coach John Harbaugh said. "James is a reliable, tough and versatile player who has played a lot of football for us. He has started at both tackle and guard, and all he has been is productive and someone who has made us better."

In 2017 Willie Young Jersey , the 6-foot-5, 317-pound Hurst was part of an offensive line that allowed only 27 sacks, tied with Minnesota for seventh fewest in the NFL.

By signing Hurst, the Ravens now have 10 unrestricted free agents.

"This feels great," Hurst said. "I've been here four years already, so I'm really excited to come back for four more and build on what we started."

Also Monday, the Ravens freed some salary cap space by releasing cornerback Lardarius Webb.

Webb Josh Malone Jersey , who played nine seasons in Baltimore, wrote on Twitter: "Thank you Baltimore it's been a great run."
