2018- Pittsburgh Steelers select Safety, Terrell Edmunds (Virginia Tech)
The Steelers chose the 6’1 217-pound Edmunds ahead of the likes of Lamar Jackson, Nick Chubb, and Darius Leonard. Sufficient to say that this is a pick that the Ravens most bitter rivals would like to have back.

Edmunds has been productive in his two seasons in Pittsburgh starting 31/32 games for Steelers. Last season, he tallied a combined 105 tackles and had three passes defended for what was an elite Steelers defense.
Edmunds is a nice player, but looking at what the Steelers passed on in a potential MVP quarterback of the future, the NFL’s second-leading rusher, and an All-Pro/Rookie DPOY in Leonard, Edmunds has a long way to go to justify the selection.
2017- Dallas Cowboys select Defensive End, Taco Charlton (Michigan)
The Cowboys chose the 6’6″ 270-pound defensive end at 28th overall and it is safe to say he was a first-round bust for Jerry Jones and company.
Charlton had a huge senior year for the Maize and Blue tallying 10 sacks and 13.5 tackles for a loss over 11 games. The choice for the Cowboys likely came down to Charlton and T.J. Watt for which player to take to improve their pass rush.
Watt has totaled 34.5 sacks in three seasons in Pittsburgh while Charlton totaled four sacks in Dallas before being released in September of 2019. Charlton was claimed by the Miami Dolphins and tallied five sacks in five starts, surpassing his career total in Dallas.
Charlton is one of the biggest draft busts in Cowboys history.
