PITTSBURGH (AP) — Aaron Donald began his college career at Pittsburgh considered too small to thrive on the defensive line.

Four years later, he has a shot at being a first-round pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot, 285-pound Donald says he doesn't care where he's taken so long as he gets a chance to show what he can do.

He did quite a bit at Pitt. He was an All-American during his senior year last fall and won the Outland Trophy as the nation's top interior lineman.

While Donald received an invitation to attend next week's draft in New York, he's going to stay home with his family in suburban Pittsburgh. Donald says it's because he wants to share the moment with the people who helped him along the way.
