What ever happened to the Pittsburgh Steelers 2010 draft class?
6.195: Antonio Brown, WR, Central Michigan
Antonio Brown has been one of the best value draft picks in NFL history. Not much was expected from this player coming out of Central Michigan. The black and gold had hope that he could at least stick with the team as a return man and have Mike Wallace, Emanuel Sanders, and Hines Ward be the main trio on offense.
This receiver had other plans and he outworked everyone in the league to become one of the best players to ever play his position. He had a Hall of Fame level career during his time in Pittsburgh, despite never winning a Super Bowl with the club. He did defame his own status in the NFL after having many off-the-field incidents.
He would go onto the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots for some short stints and was out of the league for a little. Brown would then be signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and win a Super Bowl there before he quit on that team the following season. This player had Hall of Fame potential before he got in the way of his own ego.
7.242: Doug Worthington, DT, Ohio State
Doug Worthington was a seventh-round selection that the team had hopes of sticking on the roster in a depth role. He only lasted with the Steelers for a few months before he joined another team because of his release. He would bounce around the NFL for the next five years before an injury ended his career for good.
The Steelers had a great draft class in 2010. It was one of the better draft classes in team history that fans got to enjoy for a while.
