Default Your Least Favorite Draft Pick?

Saw this poll elsewhere and thought I would ask it here as well.
Which of the steelers '08 draft picks were your least favorite pick?
RB Mendenhall
WR Limas Sweed
LB Bruce Davis
OT Tony Hills
QB Dennis Dixon
LB Mike Humpal
S Ryan Mundy
I think that Tony Hills is my least favorite pick, only because it too the steelers so long to select an o lineman.

i think humpal has the most depth in front of him, therefore the longest odds of making the team, so i will say him.

I didn't like the Humpal pick. Other than that I liked all of our selections.

really, i think the humpal pick could have lots of upside for a 6th rounder. what i like most is he seems dedicated to school and being smart.

the same can be said for mundy-

I think Dixon, not because I don't think he can be a good player for us, but because at the time I didn't know where he stood physically. I'm still not to sure.

I thought picking Humpal made little to no sense

But there isn't a ton of depth at ILB which is what Humpal.....Right now there is Farrior, Foote, and Timmons....After this year Farrior could be gone.....If Humpal stands out on special teams in the pre-season games and shows enough that he can play ILB at this level then I think he will make the team....Steelers keep around 8 LBs usually....

Harrison, Farrior, Foote, Woodley, Timmons, Davis.....Those are locks......opps forgot about Fox....He will battle with Humpal....I think Arnold Harrison will be the backup at the other OLB spot.....

Least favorite is Hills, but I'm going on what little I know of him and his medical history. Not a dislike, just a "least fav."

I haven't seen what any of them can do yet. I'm not prepared to bash any one of them yet.
