Steelers 2008 Draft Serves as Cautionary Tale for 2012

A blue chip player inexplicably falls to the Steelers in the first round. In the second the Steelers also snag "first rounder woulda been." Something similar happens in round five. And viola, the Steelers have a great draft. Sound familiar? It should, because much of what transpired with the Steelers 2012 draft also occurred in 2008…. ….OK. Steelers Nation should be excited about the 2012 draft, but the links here show how history teaches us to temper our enthusiasm, if just a tad.
