Default Just a little more proof the Steelers can't afford to blow the first pick!

I checked the Steelers page to see how many starters were drafted in each round. I must say I was surprised!

Round - # of starters
1-8
2-1
3-3
4-4
5-1
6-2
7-1
UDFA-5

Two things that really stuck out to me:
1.The starting O-line's highest drafted players Essex and Starks 3rd round picks. The others are as follows Colon(4th), Hartwig(6th), Kemo(6th). Kind of crazy you would put this in front of your franchise QB.
2. Besides Troy who was a first rounder the rest of the secondary isn't exactly full of high draft choices either Ike(4th), Gay(5th),Clark(udfa).

This list also includes the PK(udfa),P(4th), KR(udfa),FB(udfa). I think we need to start drafting better in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Just a little info let me know what you think.

Starks was drafted in the third round I believe.

Yeah, the site must be wrong because he was drafted in the 2004( started on the Super Bowl XL team). According to wikipedia he was pick number 12 in the 3rd round of the 2004 draft.

Yeah no problem. You were looking at what 24 different players. Probably just didn't cross your mind. Plus you would expect the OFFICIAL site to be able to get it right.

Your point is still valid. Other than the o-line, We don't draft very well in the mid and later rounds on a consistant basis.

Kind of scary considering we will possibly have three 5th and two 7th rounders!

Contrast that with a few years ago...

ARE 2nd

Heath 1st

Marvel 2nd

Faneca 1st

Hartings 1st

Simmons 1st

Starks 3rd


Hines 3rd

Ben 1st

Bus 1st

Kreider UDFA

_______________________

Joey 3rd

Kimo 6th

Casey 1st

Aaron 4th

Haggans 5th

Farrior 1st

Foote 4th

Ike 4th

Deshea 4th

Troy 1st

Hope 3rd

9 of 22 starters were 1st rounders. 15 of 22 were taken in the 1st 3 rounds. 19 of 22 were from the 1st 4 rounds.

The 2005 Steelers

The 2002 Steelers were even more loaded - 12 of 22 starters were 1st rounders.

I think a trend is starting to develop and hopefully last years class and this years will correct the problem.

I hate to say that the problem is in talent evaluating though because we have brought in UDFA who have contributed well. Parker, Foster, Krieder, Legursky, Logan are just a few of the more recent ones off the top of my head.
