Default Re: The holes on Steelers roster? Blame them on the Class of 2008

Round 2 - Limas Sweed WR (Ray Rice RB)

Round 3 - Bruce Davis OLB (Jermichael Finley, TE, Cliff Avril OLB)

Jermichael Finley also has a bunch of cases with locker room problems

Round 4 - Tony Hills (Josh Sitton OG)

Round 5 - Dennis Dixon QB (Carl Nicks OG)

Round 6a - Mike Humpal LB (Pierre Garcon WR)

I strongly believe he got good just because of Manning. Manning and Brady make their WRs look really good.

Round 6b - Ryan Mundy S (Matt Flynn QB)

Matt had one good game

Round 7 - no selection (traded to Atlanta)
I'm not saying our draft is better than those picks here. Just saying a lot of the selections aren't actually the greatest PLUS not every draft can be filled with studs or even starters. That 2008 draft looked really good on paper, but sadly didn't pan out.

You also can't blame all our shortcomings on one draft.
