I remember vividly, the discussions before the 2001 draft... and most Steelers fans were raving about Drew Brees. Everyone knew that he'd be good, and that he'd drop in the draft, because he was "under 6 feet tall."

Honestly, I can't argue with the Casey Hampton pick; he solidified that defense (making them #1 immediately)... but... when people try to say that Cowher never had the opportunity to draft a franchise QB (the Steelers always draft too late), I think of Brees.
