The FIRST picks of Cowher and Tomlin: 1992 Searcy, and 2007 Timmons were the head coaches. No one else. That's the "tradition".
The rest? They all have input, but Cowher had more say from 2000-2006 unless Dan Rooney "nudged" them in a direction.
Colbert has more say now with Tomlin here, than he ever had while he was with Cowher.
BC having predated Colbert and already entrenched had more power that Colbert. The situation was reversed with Colbert having the upper hand and the newer Tomlin.
Frankly it makes perfect sense, but I dont know that it can be substantiated.

Just claimed squatters rights on "ZambianCrash".
I wonder how much I should hold out for ...
We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!
HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
It's common knowledge. The first pick of the head coaches first draft is his.You wouldn't happen to have any evidence about this "tradition" now, would you?
Timmons wasn't even Plan A. He was Plan B.
Revis was the guy they were going to pick. Until the Jets swapped up and stole him.
