Pittsburgh Steelers: Comparing the Drafts, 1974 and 2010.

In 1974, the Pittsburgh Steelers had what is considered the greatest draft in the history of the NFL. Even teams that hate the Steelers are unable to dispute that claim.

The Steelers class of 1974 boasts a total of four players that are currently in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Between them, there was a total of 25 Pro Bowl apperences, and 22 All Pro nominations.

The Steelers Class of 1974 was the spring board to the Steelers Dynasty of the 70's. Ask any Steelers fan that was old enough to remember, the Steelers Draft Class of 1974 changed the game of football, forever.

So, who am I to compare the greatest draft class in the history of the sport to the Steelers Class of 2010? If you think about it, the Steelers class of 1974 was not thought to be great until they proved it on the field. Yes, the Class of 2010 has a LONG way to go until they prove they can even be in the conversation with 1974.

BUT, while looking at the similarities of these two classes, I felt the need to bring to the attention of Steelers Nation that it looks a lot similar than most people think.
