40. Casey Hampton
Has been a mainstay on the Pittsburgh defensive line since he was drafted. Slowing down some this season, Hampton is still one of the best defensive linemen the team has had, and his value can best be measured by the number of excellent seasons turned in by the team's linebackers.
39. Elbie Nickel
He played 11 seasons for Pittsburgh and was the best tight end in team history. He notched over 5,000 receiving yards and 37 touchdowns, made three Pro Bowls and was also one of the few pre-1970s players selected to the Steelers' all-time roster for their 75th Anniversary.
38. Jack Butler
Butler was a four-time Pro Bowl player for Pittsburgh from 1951-1959. He was one of the best defenders to play in Pittsburgh, and in 1953, made nine interceptions and returned one for a touchdown. He also led the NFL in interceptions in 1957. He was one of the last two-way players for the Steelers and is still No. 2 on the team's all-time list for interceptions.
37. Bill Dudley
Although he played only parts of three seasons in Pittsburgh, Dudley made quite the impact as the team's leading scorer in 1945 and the NFL's rushing leader in 1942 and 1946. Also, during 1946, he became the only player in NFL history to lead the league in four different statistical categories (including rushing and interceptions).
36. Dick Hoak
Not only was Hoak an impressive player (3,965 yards, 25 touchdowns), he was one of the longest-tenured assistant coaches in league history. He was the team's running backs coach from 1972 until 2007, and during that time, oversaw the careers of rushing greats from Franco Harris to Jerome Bettis.
