    All-time Steelers draft bust team

    Saw a tweet calling Bush the biggest, many replies with others. Can we build a starting lineup of Steeler draft busts? Have to use more than just 1st round picks, which makes it dicier. This spreads over decades, not a shot at any coach or GM. Also, some were just the unfortunate victims of injury.

    EDIT: Found guards.
    EDIT: Added kickers!

    OT - Jamain Stephens, Tom Ricketts
    OG - John Rienstra, Rick Donnally
    C - Kendrick Green
    WR - Limas Sweed, Troy Edwards, Wayne Capers
    TE- Chris Kolodziejski
    RB - Tim Worley, Dri Archer
    QB - Mark Malone

    DE - Jarvis Jones, Huey Richardson, Alonzo Jackson
    DT - Gabe Rivera, Daryl Sims, Jeremy Staat
    LB - Devin Bush, Sean Spence
    CB - Artie Burns, Ricardo Colclough, Senquez Golson
    S - Anthony Smith, Scott Shields

    K - Kris(miss) Brown
    P - John Goodson

    Mark f'n Malone. Loved how he threw a 100 mph fastball to wide receivers 10 feet away. Holy f*** forgot about that guy.

    Alonzo Jackson. That guy cracked me up. In preseason he'd high five every defensive player after each play. Too bad his talent didn't match his enthusiasm for celebrations. The worst OLB we've had.

    Wasn’t John Rienstra a guard?
    Obviously the standard is the standard.

    I take some issue with calling 3rd rounders busts but I suppose it works for the post.

    NFW is Bush the biggest bust. I know it’s magnified because they moved up for him but Huey Richardson got freaking cut in his second camp. Jarvis Jones was worse too IMO. Hated that pick the moment they made it. At least they got a good year out of Bush.

    Does Ziggy Hood meet bust criteria? He had a decent career I guess. Idk I’m on the fence about that one.

    Hard to call Gabe "Senor Sack" Rivera a bust. he had a really good rookie year and then the car accident. He was well on his way to being a very good to great defensive lineman, imo.

    It was a long time ago, I thought he completed the season, tragic.

    Agreed he should not be considered a bust due to car accident
