Fortunately for Steelers fans, we haven’t had to deal with a ton of draft busts in recent memory. I don’t want to mention any names, but the team with orange helmets in the AFC North are pretty much the opposite of the Steelers.

Anyways, Steelers Nation should be thankful for the draft success the team has had. With that being said the Steelers aren’t totally immune to drafting guys who don’t pan out like everyone thought. Here is my list of the Top Five draft busts the Steelers have made since 2000.
