Michael Huff. I thought Brady Quinn would be really good, then Browns drafted him and killed his career. Also thought Orakpo would suck

I know this thread is very old, but had to add my 2 cents worth on it.
I was so hyped about RB Tim Worley from Georgia. This guy was such a beast in college and thought for sure he would be a big hit for the Steelers. And Merril Hoge ended up being the better of those 2 for sure.
Also TE Eric Green I thought could have did alot more with the Steelers, the guy was HUGE and was a Matchup Nightmare for All Defenses, I wish he would have stuck around longer with the Steelers.

Ryan Leaf. I'm still holding out hope that he can resuscitate his career somewhere. Maybe the Steelers will sign him.

I was really high on Rashaun Woods from Oklahoma St a few years ago and thought he would be a talented NFL WR.
I'll go back to the 89 draft when the Steelers had two first round picks and used them on Tim Worley, and Tom Ricketts. I thought the Steelers were set for a return to the top of the league with those two guys, both of which were largely busts.
