In case you missed it, we’re counting down the five best multiple-pick rounds in Pittsburgh Steelers drafts since Kevin Colbert started running the draft in 2000.
After revealing No. 4 and No. 5 in Part 1 of this series (click here), we’ll unveil the top three here.

3. 2002 Seventh Round
The Steelers likely will continue to reap the benefits of the 2002 draft in 2013. Seventh-rounder Brett Keisel figures to be with the Steelers for at least another year.
Keisel began making an impact in 2005 with three sacks. He became a starter at defensive end the following year. He’s had 25 career sacks, broken up 31 passes, forced six fumbles and recovered seven fumbles in his career.
Keisel made the Pro Bowl and helped the Steelers get to the Super Bowl in 2010.
The Steelers’ third-best multiple-pick round of the Colbert era also comes with subtle infamy. Before taking Keisel with the 242nd pick, the Steelers traded kicker Kris...
BEST OF MAXIM
With Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward now entering his third season in the league, many believe that he will open the 2013 season as a starter, but I wouldn't be so quick to bet on that happening.
Even though Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette posted this week in his online chat that he's been told Heyward is already better than starting left defensive...
If the 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers draft was made into a movie, the dramatic climax would come in the fourth round.
The Steelers traded next year’s third-round pick for the Browns’ fourth-round pick, No. 111, to draft flashy safety Shamarko Thomas. Then, four picks later, the Steelers dropped some jaws by drafting Landry Jones.
Jones is the first quarterback the Steelers have drafted...
Like most NFL players, Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Larry Foote is very passionate about his alma mater and he recently gave an interview to Go Blue Wolverine to give his thoughts on Michigan and their upcoming season.
Foote, who made sure to voice his hate for Ohio State during the interview, was also asked to give his thoughts on the Steelers missing the playoffs in...
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette doesn’t believe the Steelers would be interested in resigning free agent nose tackle Casey Hampton even if he’s not ready to retire yet.
Hampton will be turning 36 years-old in early September, it doesn’t make sense for the Steelers to bring him back. It’s time to reload and move on. They’ll be just fine without him.
2012 was a phenomenal year for Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller, who registered 71 catches for 816 yards and 8 touchdowns, but when you go even deeper into his stats, you will find that the aforementioned stat line still doesn't do his Pro Bowl season justice, nor does it equate to him being ranked the 97th overall player on the Top 100 Players of 2013 list.
The Pittsburgh Steelers announced today that they’ve signed fourth round pick, safety Shamarko Thomas.

Thomas recorded 75 tackles 1 sack, and 2 interceptions during his finals season at Syracuse.
He’s hurt all the time. He hasn’t had a fourth quarter comeback in forever. It was his fault Mike Wallace left because he couldn’t throw it deep enough for him. He makes the wrong audibles. He was too ‘chummy’ with Bruce Arians and he is clearly the reason the team lost Super Bowl XLV and went 8-8 last year.
Ben Roethlisberger is a lot of things, but he isn’t Atlas. He...
The annual Top 100 Players of 2013 show that airs on the NFL Network revealed their Nos. 61-70 ranked players on Thursday night and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger surprisingly wound up in the No. 61 spot this year.
Last year, the 31 year-old Roethlisberger was ranked No. 30 overall in the rankings and fourth at his position behind only Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have come to terms with the No.111 overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, safety Shamarko Thomas, on a four-year deal. Thomas enters the NFL as a backup with upside.

Undrafted rookie free agent Reggie Dunn wasn't a full-time starter in college but he comes to the Steelers with electrifying speed. Sound familiar?
