I was just thinking tonight, the Steelers are generally spot on when it comes to the first round draft picks. They rarely miss and especially in recent memory every one of them is a starter on the team now; Pouncey, Ziggy Hood, Mendenhall, Timmons, etc.
Going through the draft history, here , you can see how good they've been in the first round. I will say though looking at some recent 2nd and 3rd round picks, they've stumbled a bit. Kraig Urbik in 2009, Limas Sweed & Bruce Davis in 2008, Anthony Smith and Willie Reid in 2006, etc. Fortunately 2010 and 2011 they've been solid all around.
Who's the best draft pick in your opinion, and the worst. Let's stick to the last 10 years or so since those players are still in the league or recently retired.
I would say the best has to be Ben Roethlisberger for obvious reasons.
Worst, Alonzo Jackson in 2003 was a total bust in the 2nd round.
Ryan McBean in the 4th round 2007 did nothing.
