If he would have gone Top 5, that means that the Giants and the Chargers each got Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger. Since nobody took Roethlisberger before we got to our pick, I assume we would have taken Phillip Rivers, since our main concern at the time was finding a franchise QB.

You're Right i forgot about Rivers being available. But passing on Jackson I wish we never did. Not complaining about Ben but I love the way Jackson runs. I love Ben tho!

As I recall the Steelers had pretty much settled in on the fact that they were going to take Phillip Rivers. Of course they had Roethlisberger rated a lot higher than Rivers but who in the heck expected him to fall to us.

I think that had Roethlisberger and Rivers both been gone, the Steelers would have taken Steven Jackson. I recall that he visited the Steelers, and was on Sportsbeat, prior to the draft.

I believe that in Dan Rooney's book, he said that the draft people were looking hard at G Shaun Andrews.
