Default Only one draft pick could wear his college number here

David Decastro 52 -Mike Webster
Mike Adams 75 -Joe Greene
Kelvin Beachum 70 -Retired Ernie Stautner (I forgot about him, thanks below for the correction)

Sean Spence 31 -Curtis Brown
Alameda Ta'amu 74 -currently Colon, maybe next year he'll get it?
Chris Rainey 3 and 1 -no single digits for backs allowed.
Toney Clemons 7 -won't be seeing that number huh?
Terrence Frederick 7 -big ben says no

David Paulson 42 -Damon Cromartie-Smith so it's possible if Smith gets cut.

70 is the only Steeler number officially retired.

Kelvin Beachum 70 -JACKPOT!. No #70 on the roster, but will Beachum make the roster?



#70 was retired for Stautner

Yeah...I would have double check that before saying that about 70. How could you forget Stautner? He was a monster and one of the best ever.

Few of them actually do wear their college numbers, time to move into the big times. Its only a number.

I have vague memories of a man called Stautner that was a mean SOB even when the game was over. I wasn't even a dream yet of my mother and father's yet when he was playing however. So no draftee gets his college number. I stand corrected and kudos to the fans that knew about #70. You know your Steelers.


So actually David Paulson is the only draft pick that could wear his number here next year and that is if Cromartie-Smith gets cut.

Thanks for bringing this to light. This shows what a horrible draft this was. Amazing that they didn't see this insurmountable problem in advance. What were they thinking? Perhaps next year they will plan ahead better and draft guys whose numbers fit in with the team better.
