Good to know that we are not alone.


Pittsburgh Steelers: Jamain Stephens, 29th overall, 1996. Even the Steelers, the NFL's beacon of draft glory, have had their missteps. After three years with the Steelers, Bill Cowher watched Stephens show up to training camp completely out of shape, then fail to complete a series of 40-yard dashes. Cowher then cut him right there on the spot.
Honorable Mention: Huey Richardson

What, no Tim Worley or Tom Rickets?

That might be the worst draft ever, considering we swung and missed twice in the first round. It's funny to look back (that was one of the first drafts where I really paid attention), and see the names from that draft class!

It's amazing that Jamain Stephens was 15-16 years ago. I remember we played Green Bay in the preseason (my cousin is a GB fan), and Jamain blocked Reggie White... I think Reggie fell over, and I was raving how he pancaked REGGIE WHITE... he was going to be the next Art Shell or something. :P
