Who is the worst Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle drafted by the team?


For some positions it’s hard to pick who’s the worst. This isn’t necessarily true for offensive tackle.

I think former head coach Bill Cowher would agree with me.

The worst offensive tackle drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers is:

Jamain Stephens

Pittsburgh drafted Stephens in 1996 to replace the (snubbed from the honorable mentions for best OT) great Leon Searcy after Searcy left following the Super Bowl XXX year in which Pittsburgh lost to Dallas.

Stephens was a great talent coming out of North Carolina A&T but he never really cut it in his first two seasons trying to block for the pounding Jerome Bettis.

But in his third year, things got bad.

He arrived to camp nearly 40 pounds overweight and was cut by Cowher almost immediately after failing to complete running drills on the first day of camp.

A wasted talent to be sure. It’s a shame to see.

(Dis)Honorable Mentions:

– Trai Essex

– Mike Adams (TBD)
