Exactly. At times, Troy looked lost. And, I remember, during his rookie year, they asked Troy why he wasn't "Troy" yet.  To which he replied, "I don't know the plays well enough yet to play how I expect to play."  

Then... he exploded in his second year.  

Yet... Steelers fans were calling for Cower's head, for having "drafted slow SS."  

I watched Troy for three years, and never thought that the Steelers had a shot at drafting him.  He fell (out of the top 10); the Steelers traded up; and, the rest is history.  

Similarly, I watched DD for two years, and never thought that the Steelers had a shot at drafting him.  He fell to 24;  the Steelers traded up; and, the rest shall be history.
