The Steelers 2005 draft was nearly as bad as 2008. The only pick that worked was Miller (although one could argue McFadden was an OK pick, he really underperformed for his draft position). So bad draft classes happen, but they obviously have to be followed by exceptional picks in later years. Holmes and Colon saved the 2006 draft. Timmons and Woodley the following year (some might argue the jury is still out on Woodley).
