Steelers Draft History
Although having featured two of the greatest QB’s in NFL history, the Steelers have had more misses than hits at the games premier position
We're at the midway point in the 2015 NFL season, and the draft position and needs for each team is starting to come into focus. With that lets take a look ahead and see who the Steelers may be targeting with the 2016 NFL draft rolls around.
The Steelers have drafted offensive and defensive linemen in the first round of recent drafts, but it was the grinders who got contracts this offseason. The disparity between the two makes for an interesting batting over the offseason workouts.
Opportunity was there in 2006 and the Steelers worked to make something happen. While they picked up a player who will be forever etched in Steelers history, they didn't get much long-term return on their investment, or other moves they made in 2006.
The Steelers selected 11th in 2004. They haven't selected that high since then, largely because of the player they selected with that 11th overall pick. While they added only one other long-term player, the Steelers aced their second draft in a row.
