i always looked at it as he was the #8 over all player selected in the draft. not only do the steelers rarely get to draft that high, they would never take a linebacker. i think farrior signed for a little above the vet minimum that year. definitely cowher and colberts finest move yet (as far as signing f. a.'s goes).
