Default Re: Not Liking Our #1 Draft Pick

The Steelers have invested more #1's on WR in the Cowher era than any other position. Some management teams just can't draft a position and it is obvious these guys can assess WR's. I wish they would just stop trying and invest #1's on O and D line.

By the way - Cowher has never drafted a linebacker # 1 in 16 drafts and this year is the fisrt year that he did draft a single linebacker.
this isnt a steelers problem. alot of 1st round wr's end up sucking:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

heres the wr's taken in the 1st rounds between 93-03 in the order they were picked. i only went up to 03 cause rookie wr usually need 3 years before theyre worth a crap anyways. this list of 42 wr pretty much looks like a list of whos who amongst wr busts. take out moulds, moss, harrison, galloway, glenn, keyshawn, plex, s. moss, j. walker and a johnson. (the 25% of 1st rounders turned out to be anything). only 1 year was there a better than 50% success rate- 96. i really liked the 97 draftclass, where teams batted .000. (steelers themselves have drafted 3 during this period and onl one really panned out and that was plex. hes gone and was never the leading wr. this says alot.
