Pittsburgh Steelers Mount Rushmore: Who were the hardest hitters in franchise history?

In a new feature at BTSC, we take a look back and see who were the best of the best in franchise history. Today's debate: The hardest hitters.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

It's common to associate the four best of something as the Mount Rushmore of anything. Like Paul McCartney / Freddie Mercury / Mick Jagger / David Lee Roth as the Mount Rushmore of front men, Playboy / Penthouse / Hustler / Swank as the Mount Rushmore of nudie mags and Lethal Weapon / Lethal Weapon 2 / Lethal Weapon 3 / Lethal Weapon 4 as the Mount Rushmore of Lethal Weapon movies.

With that being said, there are so many possibilities for Steeler Mount Rushmores. A few week's back in "Random Thoughts From a Black and Gold Mind", we had a fun discussion of the Mount Rushmore of Steeler free-agent acquisitions. We went with Kevin Greene / DeAngelo Williams / Ryan Clark / James Farrior. But there were other worthy submissions.

So, this has become a new weekly feature. BTSC will provide the topic and you can contribute by providing your top four in the comment section. As an added bonus, you get the opportunity to mock and argue mercilessly with another. I know how much you guys and gals love to do that.

So, let's do this. Help name our first of many Pittsburgh Steelers Mount Rushmores. It will be monumental. Get it? Monumental?

Here we go:

Mike Mitchell is definitely a punishing hitter. But is he good enough to make the Mount Rushmore of Steelers all-time hard hitters? Let us know who you feel are the most devastating crushers in Steeler history. Give us four.
