Default NFL Draft: Worst To First

well we are ranked 17th overall according to Pat Moran of the Buffalo Bills

17. Pittsburgh: When you're the defending Super Bowl champs you're afforded the luxury of picking need players in the draft. The Steelers did just that. Pittsburgh saw free agent WR Antwan Randle El flee to Washington. So they traded up on the draft and grabbed the top receiver on the board in Santonio Holmes. They also replaced departed safety Chris Hope (Titans) in round three by taking Anthony Smith. The interesting pick came in round five when Omar Jacobs was selected. Talk about poor personal decisions. If Jacobs stayed in school another year he could have possibly been a first round pick in 2007. Now he's likely to spend a good part of his career as a clear-cut backup to Ben Roethlisberger.
