I think Heyward will be good once he becomes a starter. He's just stuck behind a good veteran in Brett Keisel right now.
Ziggy Hood is serviceable and like you said was basically a 2nd rounder. IMO the Steelers forced the Hood pick out of need because they so desperately needed a young D-Line body at that time with Keisel, Hampton, Smith, Hoke, Eason and Kirschke all over 30.
