There’s a reason why the Steelers have a rich history, and part of that reason has been their ability to not only draft but develop first-round NFL Draft picks. Over the years, the Steelers have drafted nine future Hall of Famers in the first round, including four between 1969 and 1974. Additionally, the franchise had a first-round draft pick in the first round every year from 1968 to 2019.
