    All respect Parcells earned for taking Witten and being persuaded on Romo, he loses for the horrendous 2006 draft. If not for the spectacular 2005 draft, we'd be in a lot of trouble right now.

    I think you can almost make a case for Larry Allen. He was a rather high pick, but something like 8 or 9 OLinemen were taken in front of him and when all is said and done, he'll be remembered as one of the greats at 2 positions.

    + more respect. Thanks for the reminder. But this thread is about steals.
    We're not.

    Looks like the ESPN archives get a little sketchy about data past 25 years old.

    By that logic Terry Bradshaw was a steal as a 1st overall pick because he took the Steelers to 4 Super Bowls. Who wouldn't consider that a steal?

    Meanwhile Bart Starr is left off that list and he was a legit steal. Maybe the best steal of all time.
