All of our picks have panned out to be stars or reliable starters in the league

The thing that is very interesting to me is that none of Steelers picks are "bust" picks. I can't look at any of them and wonder "Why did we draft him?" With the other teams, they have a few busts scattered about.

Very nice read.


Thanks.

Id be interested as well to see how 2nds have panned out over the same time span.

..and yeah..we have done very well I might add. and of course the reason why Baltimore is still around is because of some of their picks as well.

Not me. Without Holmes, we don't win SB XLIII. With Holmes, we would have won SB XLV. Granted he can't lay off the pipe, but that dude is more of a difference maker for his team than Ngata.
