With the Pittsburgh Steelers now having to worry about the future of their franchise, the team has had previous draft picks they've had to worry about when it comes to the future of their career. Gabe Rivera was the Steelers' first round draft pick in the 1983 NFL Draft. One reason Rivera is remembered is based on the fact that the Steelers' had an opportunity to select Dan Marino at the time, yet the team went ahead with the decision of selecting Rivera. Another reason that Rivera is still remembered today is for the tragic accident that Rivera was involved in during his rookie season. The defensive lineman wrecked his sports car midway through his rookie season, resulting in Rivera being paralyzed. Since the accident has occurred, Rivera has still yet to walk.
