Boy are teams are going to kick themselves for not picking this kid.

From cbssportsline:
The Steelers (6-1) off to their best start since their 1978 team was 7-0. Roethlisberger was 18-of-24 for 196 yards and no interceptions Sunday and is 39-of-49 in his last two games.

He was pick #11.

Thinking of the Redskins at #6, Cleveland #5, Buffalo had two first rounder #22, #13 I know they got Losman but.

See draft NFL 1st round (http://www.nfl.com/draft/drafttracker/round/round1)

I think some other teams like Chicago or Miami should have sold their soul for him. He was called the most ready QB.

Amazing arm too. I watched him play once in college (on TV) and was thouroughly impressed. He's the gem of this year's draft.

I watched the draft with a die-hard Steelers fan. He was in agony as picks 2 through 10 were announced praying for Big Ben to fall. When the Steelers were on the clock and Ben was still available he kept yelling "Don't f--- this up" at the TV.

Damn, first time he's ever been right about something football related.

Last years while at Miami (Ohio) I told my life insurance guy (die hard Raider fan) that they should pick TR.. Now he is kickin himself, I just had a feeling the guy would be good right away. Of course the Raiders suck in alot of different area's.
