What players have you most wished could have been Steelers?

It was with sadness today that I read the news of the passing of Chris Spielman's wife, Stefanie, who died yesterday after a long battle with breast cancer.  She had been battling the disease for 11 years and evidently she and Chris had raised over $6 million for research to fight it.  I didn't know of that, and I applaud the Spielman's for it.

What I did know was that Chris Spielman was a rugged, intelligent linebacker who would have looked great in the Black and Gold.  As an Ohio State fan, I followed his All-American career closely and rooted for him as he made Pro Bowls for both the Lions and the Bills.  It seems unfortunate that he wound up on those teams.  Chris Spielman was meant to be a Steeler.  His grit, his effort, his toughness.  For an Ohio guy he had Pittsburgh all over him.

Even though most of us are turning our attention to the Steelers-Chiefs game, the mention of Chris Spielman has gotten me to thinking.  What opposing players, either current or past, would you most liked to have seen in the Black and Gold?  For me, Spielman tops the list, followed closely by Ronnie Lott and Earl Campbell (imagine Earl Campbell as a Steeler!  Now that would have been something!).  Anyone else?  I'm curious as to who the Nation would list...
