Default players missed in the steelers drafts

what players did you like for the team or think wouldve been better picks had not the steelers passed on them or missed the boat?

everybodys answer on this should be dan marino as #1 but since i didnt follow the draft back then and i think some of the answers will be cool i will say brian urlacher at #8 our highest pick in quite a while. we took plaxico and many thought we shouldve taken pennington. (plus hes a former lobo and n.m. naitive.)

The Steelers had Johnny Unitas at one point and released him.

I think it was the 1999 Draft when the Steelers could have had Jevon Kearse and took Troy Edwards instead.

This website (Steelers Tribute) lists bad personnel decisions. Pulling out the draft decisions,

Everyone drafted after

Jamaine Stevens in '96
John Reinstra in '86
Huey Richardson in '91
Tim Worley and Tom Ricketts (TWO first rounders!) in '89
Aaron Jones in '88
Troy Edwards in '99

Matter of fact, go to the list of first round picks and you can see a very good reason for the Steelers' recent success. Even though some recent guys are gone (Plax, for example), the talent evaluation is much better than it was from 1979-1996.

Steelers drafts have been far and away better since the departure of one Tom Donahoe.

Good point....Truth is.......nothing is guranteed....."ryan leaf"......think about.....how many pro-bowlers were first round picks........i think the first round is over ratted..... there are quality players through out the draft.........now. ofcourse you have the top 5-10players but after that......anything can happen
