that depends what you mean. a LB benefitting from the scheme or a genuinely good LB. IMO, porter, gildon, haggans and foote are/were merely LBs who benefitted from the steelers 3-4 blitz scheme. they are just average LBs.

the steelers haven't drafted any star LBs since kirkland and brown. actually earl holmes(1996) was pretty good, maybe not a star, but he was above average.

to answer your question, in 2005 they drafted rian wallace. in 2003 they draft alonzo jackson. the steelers didn't draft any LBs in 2006 or 2004.

the jury is still out on timmons and woodley.
